JT Martinez

High School Pastor

JT Martinez grew up in Corona, CA after his grandparents took on the calling to raise him and his two sisters. During that time, he struggled with faith due to the trauma he had experienced from his parents. He rebelled against God for many years never knowing if his life mattered. It wasn’t until high school that he experienced the love of Christ and decided to commit his life to the Lord and be open to whatever God was calling him to do.

After getting involved in a local church and going on a mission trip to Kenya, he was affirmed that he had been called to vocational ministry. Through interning in a local church, serving on staff as a pre-teen associate in Huntington Beach, CA, and being a junior high pastor in Pomona, CA, his passion for investing in the next generation only grew stronger.

He is married to his amazing wife Alicia who he has known since 5th grade. They enjoy going to the beach, trying new food, experiencing San Diego county, rooting for their favorite teams, and spending quality time together.
