Pastor Charles O’Hanen

Areas of Responsibility: Preaching, Teaching, Discipleship, Youth Ministry, Worship Ministry​

In 1988, our merciful savior drew Charles to Himself. Aside from preaching and teaching at GBC he also teaches theology classes at Grace Bible College.  Charles has a strong desire to pour into other men that which he has gleaned from the faithful education he has been given at Cornerstone Seminary(2015).

Family:

By God’s grace, Charles has been married to his wife Melissa for 30 years. They have been blessed with four sons and a daughter, five grandchildren, and innumerable spiritual children.

Favorite Book:

Too hard to choose just one. Favorite authors are the old, dead guys like Ryle, Edwards and Spurgeon. (Hebrews 13:7)​

The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.  2 Timothy 2:2

Pastor Jon Szabo

Areas of Responsibility: Children’s Ministry, Teaching-Discipleship, Preaching and some Administration.

While in his mid-twenties Jon stumbled across a thing called expository preaching and actually heard the gospel fearlessly proclaimed.  After being saved he has sought to know God’s Word more.  Having graduated from The Master’s Seminary in 2002, Jon has since taught in various churches while slowly migrating his family from Southern California to very Northern California. He loves children’s ministry, discipleship and getting into the real meaning of Bible passages.

Family:

Jon and Maria have been married since 2002 and have three daughters. They still do family devotionals and enjoy serving in the church in various ways.     

Favorite Book:

Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem; also starting to enjoy Thomas R. Schreiner (SBTS) more.

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.  2 Corinthians 5:21
