Join us this weekend as we continue our series Neighborhood Church with the message “Followers of Jesus Follow Jesus (to Strange Places to Broken People)” by guest speaker, Scott Lisea.

SATURDAY | 5:00 P.M.
SUNDAY | 8:00, 9:30, 11:11 A.M.

Scott Lisea is husband to his wife, Jamie, and father to their three sons, Tyler, Reed, and Braeden. That is his high calling. He has been following Jesus for over 30 years.  He and his family live in Santa Barbara, California where he now serves as the Campus Pastor at Westmont College.

He is a graduate of Westmont College (Economics/Business ’88), completed his Masters in Theology (’98) (Chap Clark was one of his professors) and Doctorate in Theology from Fuller Seminary (2013).  His dissertation was a study in the expansive nature of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He has spent his lifetime working with young people, serving on the Young Life staff for 23 years (where Chap was briefly his boss), retiring as the Regional Director for the Gold Coast & Central California Region. He served in executive leadership for 8 years in Christian education at Oaks Christian School, and then Providence Christian School in Santa Barbara.

He has led a community-wide men’s Bible study for years, is involved in training ministry leaders throughout Asia and Africa, speaks at summer camps, and he and his wife, Jamie, teach a ministry leadership course at Westmont and lead marriage intensives together for Young Life staff from around the country.

He likes to play everything, and is great at nothing, including: golfing, surfing, fly fishing and cycling.

That’s the good news. The truth is also that he can be a stumbling, bumbling, inconsistent, impatient, self-absorbed, undisciplined, brash, crude, ungentle, and short-sighted disciple of Jesus, who has feet of clay, and who sometimes gets it right, but mostly is in awe of the patience, mercy, grace, and unconditional love of our God.
