Matt Jensen-- Pastor of Christian Education
I was born and raised in Lancaster California. By the grace of God, I grew up going to church because my mom took me (sometimes against my will). God opened my eyes to the gospel sometime around Junior High. I had heard the good news repeatedly for years. Due to the collective efforts of my mom, Sunday school teachers, and preachers at church I was awakened and responded in faith by asking for forgiveness and trusting Christ for salvation. I experienced the gospel that is the power of God for salvation for all who believe (Romans 1:16). I began serving in youth group when I was about 15 and this led to fulltime ministry as a youth pastor after college. Marlo & I were married in 1993 and then served in Youth Ministry together for about 14-15 years (11 of these here at LACC). We became members of Lake Almanor Community Church in 1995. Along the way we had two awesome children, Mikala (16) and Nicolas (14). We just recently returned from about 7 1/2 years in Ecuador where we served at Youth World as some of LACC's missionaries. We are glad to be back home and would love to serve the church in any way we can. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Krissy is native to the Lake Almanor area being born in Chester and raised in Hamilton Branch.

Chrystal deMartimprey -- Children's Ministry CoordinatorI came to faith shortly after graduating from high school in 1973. God kindly and wisely placed me in a loving, Bible believing church who loved and taught me the ways of Christ. I moved from Southern California to Westwood in 1977. Here, I met and married my faithful patient and loving husband, Alex, in 1978. We own and operate Lassen True Value in Westwood, which has been our hometown since we married. We have raised 6 wonderful children and have 5 grandchildren. LACC has been my church home from the day the doors opened in 1978. I count it a joy to be a part of this church. I believe children are a gift from the Lord and that He has ordained parents to be the primary teacher of those precious gifts. I also believe that one of the roles of the church is to come along side parents to support and train children in the ways of the Lord. I count it a great privilege and responsibility to serve as the Children's Ministry Coordinator.CONTACT CHRYSTAL DEMARTIMPREYPhone: 530-596-3683 x 103
