We've hired a new Lead Pastor!
Dear Church Family,
It is with tremendous thanksgiving and joy that we write to inform you of the hiring of Discovery Christian Church’s new Senior Pastor, Stephen Boutry. Steve and his family met many of you during their recent visit, and the hiring team received nothing but high praise and enthusiastic support.
Steve graduated from the University of the Pacific in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degrees in History and Social Studies. In 2005, he graduated from Western Seminary with a Master of Arts degree (magna cum laude) in Christian Leadership. For the past 3 years, Steve has served as the Associate Pastor at Regeneration Church in Oakland, California, helping the church grow and thrive beyond the “200 barrier.” Prior to this, he was Director of Sojourn Collegiate Ministries in Boston, Massachusetts (2009-2014) and Associate Pastor for Christ the King Community Church in Durango, Colorado (2006-2008).
We are extremely grateful to members of the search and hiring committee for their faithful and tireless efforts in this process. Nearly 100 individuals applied for the position, and through meticulous review, a series of interviews, and much prayer, Steve was unanimously chosen to lead our church. We join with you in hopeful and joyous expectation for the next chapter at Discovery, convinced of God’s gracious provision and future purpose. We are so grateful for His faithfulness, perfect provision, and abundant answer to prayer.
We wholeheartedly welcome Steve, his wife Amy, and their children Marina and Cruz into the Discovery family. We are excited to see where God takes us together as we reach our CITY to change the WORLD! Please join with us in welcoming the Boutry family to Discovery on June 3rd!
Your Elders (GR, Scott, and Jorge)
