High School Director

Contact Jordan

Jordan gave his life to the Lord in 2010 and has been involved in youth ministry for over 10 years. He was a student leader at his youth group, and became an adult leader and a part of the worship team for an intensive discipleship program called On The Edge Murrieta under Pastor Rod Thompson and Pastor Aaron Sabio. It was there the Lord placed a calling on his heart to lead the next generation of students to know Jesus. Jordan is also a member of REVO Collective, a group of worship leaders with a goal to start a revolution in this generation for the sake of Christ. In 2021, Jordan began attending Reliance church serving in the High School Ministry and Worship Ministry and came on staff in November 2023 as the High School Ministry Director. He has a heart to guide and lead the students to know that there is no better love than the love that Jesus has for them.

In his free time, Jordan loves long walks on the beach, skateboarding with friends and youth students, bowling, and playing softball with his friends and family where they have won back to back division titles. He also loves the Anaheim Ducks even though it hurts his heart most of the time.

What is your hope for Reliance Church?
My hope for Reliance Church is that we be a church built on God’s never changing word. That when people walk through our doors they feel welcomed, they feel loved, and they feel accepted. I pray that our church is a direct image of Jesus that welcomes ALL to come as they are.
