Lead Pastor 

Jason and 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 of God in the local community and around the world. In addition to leading Wave, Angelina and Jason love the ocean, where you will find Jason surfing and Angelina hanging out with their boys, Caleb, Jayden, and Micah. Jason has a Master's of Divinity from Bethel Seminary, while Angelina, a piano performance graduate of Point Loma Nazarene University, continues to pass on her skills and love of music to students through her private studio.  Jason and Angelina simply love pouring into others' lives, whether through Wave,  Angelina's piano studio, or Jason's flight instruction, they seek to bring Jesus into all they do in everyday life.

Steven completed his undergrad at UCSD and has a Master's in Educational and Clinical Counseling from Azusa Pacific University. Steven works as a therapist helping provide restoration and healing to those in need. They both enjoy being outdoors, surfing, skating, hiking, playing soccer, and most of all enjoying their beautiful children, Cadence and Writer. 


Jessica Coffey

Hospitality Ministries 

Jessica is a former first-grade teacher who now enjoys the flexibility of working from home, taking care of her two children, and spending time with her husband, Keith. Jessica's passion for hospitality stems from her southern roots, but has grown as she and her husband have lived in several cities around the world after marriage. She benefited so much from meeting others and being included, and hopes to help others feel welcomed and loved as well. God's peace has seen their family through many difficulties, so Jessica loves to connect with others by sharing the love of Jesus. If you are interested in helping with hospitality in any capacity, don't hesitate to reach out so we can find a spot for you!
