Pastor Jeff Blain

Tends the flock; Leads the staff

I often describe myself as “California Casual” – which means you will more often see me in a T-shirt with shorts or jeans than you will in the “dress clothes” I am wearing in my picture here! I LOVE to teach the Bible and to talk about how faith and life fit together. (Ask me sometime about the difference between taking the Bible “seriously” and taking it “literally” – it’s a pretty important distinction!) It has been my privilege to be part of the Ascension family since November of 1993. And I am excited to see where God will take us as we continue to focus on “making disciples who make disciples.”
