JILLENE

COOK

Youth Pastor

I've been in Youth Ministry since 2012 and I am currently the Youth Pastor and Worship Leader at Ascension. I have a strong passion for seeing people's lives change from radical encounters with Jesus. I am currently in Seminary at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada pursuing a Masters in Soul Care. In my free time I love to go on artistic adventures, concerts, museums, write music, drink tea, play with my dog, and spend time with my family.

MARCO COLLAZO

Ascension Lutheran Church

I’m a full time student of truth and a lifelong fool for God. If I’m not studying scripture, I’m probably on a hike or enjoying an iced mocha latte with oat milk. My heart is poured out for the broken and lost, I get filled with joy watching the youth grow in righteousness, and my hope is in The Lord and His ability to bring heaven to earth through me as a steward of grace. Hallelujah.
