Jason & Angelina are the founding pastors of Wave Church SD! From the very beginning, they had the dream of starting a church that felt like a family! A family that courageously strives to make an impact for the kingdom in the local community & around the world! Besides leading Wave, Angelina & Jason love the ocean, where you will find Jason surfing and Angelina hanging out with their boys, Caleb, Jayden, and Micah. Jason has a Masters of Divinity from Bethel Seminary while Angelina, a piano performance graduate of Point Loma Nazarene University, continues to pass on her skill and love of music to students through her private studio. Jason & Angelina simply love pouring into others lives, whether through Wave, Angelina's piano studio, or Jason's Flight Instruction hobby, they seek to bring Jesus into everyday life!
