New Middle School Pastor – Sekwohn Grondin

Hey Parents!

If you haven’t heard by now, I am taking over the middle school ministry starting today! Jilane has done an incredible job and will continue in the ministry as an upcoming 6th grade small group leader!

If you don’t know me, my name is Sekwohn Grondin. I’ve been the HS Pastor since September but my connection to Canyon Springs goes back to 2011 when I went to OASIS as a student for my junior and senior years of high school. I graduated from Scripps Ranch High School in 2013.

In 2015, I interned at Canyon Springs for a summer under Chad Richards who was the Youth Pastor at the time but is not the Executive Pastor of Canyon Springs.

I then went off to Biola University where I met my wife Marysa! We dated throughout college and graduated together in May of 2017, and got married July 27th, 2017.

I worked as a Middle School and High School Pastor in Fullerton, CA from 2017-2021 until we knew that God was calling my wife and I back to San Diego to do ministry here!

On April 24, 2022 (5 weeks ago, so fast!) we welcomed Micah James Grondin into the world and He has been just a gift from the Lord.

I have gotten to know many of your students already through FCA at Marshall Middle School but am thrilled to get to know them even better through leading OASIS. If you have any questions or want to introduce yourself, please reach out!
