High School Pastor

Seth-ReddenRoots: I was born and raised in Escondido, CA. I moved here when I was 4 years old and went to Oak Hill and Lincoln Elementary schools, Rincon Middle, and graduated from Escondido High in 2006. I went to San Diego State University and did my Master of Divinity degree at Bethel Seminary San Diego.

Calling: I graduated college and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I knew that I wanted to work with young people and I wanted to learn more about who God was. I was volunteering with John Riley in Junior High and started to explore furthering my education which got me interested in seminary and the Lord continued to confirm this is where He wanted me. I have been trying to tell people to good news about who Jesus is ever since. ​

Free Time: I spent a year in Spain gallivanting around Europe and love to interact with different people and cultures. I love all sports. I like to spend time with family and friends.

I am a huge fan of: My wife, young people, the idea of exercising, the Padres, Kobe Bean Bryant, and Jeremys Park's beard.
