Pastor George and his wife Kristen have called the East Bay Area home for more than 35 years. George was born and raised in Concord, attended College Park High School in Pleasant Hill, and established and eventually sold a successful custom printed apparel company based out of Concord. Kristen was a transplant from Southern California at an early age, and has always considered the East Bay her home. They have been married for almost 20 years and have one beautiful, life loving daughter, Madison.
Looking back on their lives individually as well as together, God has worked through the many relationships in age groups that are markedly different than their own. Some of their closest friends are about 20 years older - and they are equally close with *their* kids, who are exactly their age. George & Kristen have also had the opportunity to invest in the lives of many students and adults over their past 25+ years of relational ministry. God has repeatedly used different generations to continue to shape them into the people He created them to be.
You know a legacy has been established when subsequent generations are living out the principles and values modeled by those who have gone before them. George and Kristen are the product of three generations of Christ followers.
The decisions made today will always lay a foundation upon which subsequent generations build.
God has gifted Pastor George with the personality to be able to relate to all age groups and backgrounds. PG's heart is to connect the generations, and assist in equipping them to be all that God has called them to be, through an uncompromising commitment to Jesus and a huge heart for people.
At Gen Church, we are passionate about creating an environment where the younger generation can dream big dreams and energetically cast vision, while being supported by the more established generation’s wisdom, resources, and life experience. This is the legacy we strive to bring to Pleasant Hill and our surrounding communities.
