Marisa 2019

When Jesse and I started Rain City Church, I had no idea how God would use me. After starting out helping wherever and however I could, I had the opportunity to serve as Rain City's KIDS Pastor and then as their FAMILY LIFE Pastor, overseeing ministries for Babies up through Young Adults & Marriages. After taking a hard look at how we do things at Rain City, a new position opened up and I was offered the chance to work in a new area of ministry as Rain City's MISSIONS & MOBILIZATION Pastor. I have loved my time as FAMILY LIFE Pastor but happily accepted this new challenge. I have officially jumped right into my role and look forward to all that's ahead.

Iā€™m a graduate of Azusa Pacific University and have worked in the film industry, the music industry, founded a non-profit fighting human trafficking, and recently started a side business (Modern Mouse Design) doing Disneyland vacation consulting and designing my own line of Disney-inspired clothing. I have been married to my incredible husband and partner, Jesse, for 17 amazing years and get to be the mom to three incredible kids, Liam (13), Finn (10), and Harper (5) and have the sweetest dog named Maple Syrup. 

At night, after my kids go to bed, you can find me reading, binge-watching Netflix, heading out to see a movie, on my laptop, or just plain passed out on the couch.
