The truest thing about me is that I love Jesus. I met him in 2001 and have never been the same since. I also love my wife; we have been married since 2002, and have 6 kids.

We live in a city of over 20,000 people in one square mile, mostly college students, called Isla Vista. I am Lead Pastor of Isla Vista Church and began a ministry called Jesus Burgers in 2001 that passes out around 200 hamburgers every Friday night on the main party street in our city.

Life is a gift and I am a thankful man. I am an avid learner and live to see lives transformed by God. I like coffee, kids, reading, and helping others learn to face life (not in that order).  


This site was created to give people access to my life and support those who want to grow in Christ. We still have an age-old problem today that Paul spoke about to the church in Corinthians when he told them that they had many teachers in the body of Christ but few fathers (1 Corinthians 4:15). As a father, I want to help people keep their eyes on Jesus and continue to move forward in life. Life has a way of throwing curveballs at us all, which is why we all need fathers/coaches to learn to hit them better.

Having people in our lives that know us and love us enough to say what other people usually aren’t saying is a gift. I find it to be one of the greatest honors in this life to have the kind of access I do into the lives God has placed around me.  

If you decide to sign up for the program, know that I will be prayerful and sensitive to what the Spirit is doing. I am not looking to put my agenda on you but rather find out what God is doing and partner with that.

Want to come and meet the Lomelino Tribe and the Isla Vista Church family?  We have an internship program in which people can come for 1 to 8 weeks to the city of Isla Vista. The program is very relational and highly organic in regards to the structure.

We have had interns from Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, England, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, California, and many other places.
