Pastor Doug's Eclipse Experience.
Pastor Doug has been at Cal Heights for two years now. He has three beautiful children: Kylie, Aidan, and Madison. He enjoys playing music on piano and guitar as well as singing. Periodic triathlons and camping are some of his hobbies along with cooking and culinary experimentation.

Doug graduated from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio back in 1995 and has served as a United Methodist pastor in the San Diego and Inland Empire regions before coming to serve with us here in Long Beach.

Pastor Doug focuses his teaching and preaching on: 1) Sharing the unconditional and unending love of God that we see in the life and teachings of Jesus, 2) Bringing the Bible alive by imagining what the writers and preachers meant for the earliest hearers and readers to learn and live, and, 3) Letting everyone know that they are loved, invited, and accepted for who they are (by us and by God).

Director of Ministry to Children and Youth
Jesse Letourneau

Jesse began his time at Cal Heights in July of 2017. He lived in Long Beach from 2000 to 2008 where he served both as a substitute for LBUSD and as a lay leader for Children's Ministry at Grace Community of Seal Beach.

After that time, God led Jesse on a journey that led through working at a Science Camp in the Bay Area and graduate school in Chicago. Jesse graduated from North Park Theological Seminary in 2015.

He is excited to have returned to the land of In-N-Out and Trader Joe's. In his free time Jesse can be found reading comic books, practicing for his eventual try out as center for the Lakers, or overanalyzing the theology of the Muppets.

Jesse is working to create a Children's Ministry where children, parents, and youth know that they are loved and accepted by God; leading to lives that extend this love and acceptance to their neighbor.
