Serving All of Chico and the Surrounding Areas
Jesus is real, relevant and wants a relationship with you!
Originally from Honolulu Hawaii, my wife Debbie and I have ministered in the Chico area for the past 18 years.
I lived in the L.A. area for a few years striving to become a "Rock Star". My whole life was centered around music and the spotlight. I loved Jesus and I knew He was real but there was no way I made Him relevant in my life. I was not walking on the path He had laid out for me and WOW was I a jerk! No way my lifestyle showed people around me that God led my life.
I basically ignored the calling of the Lord for about 10 years going from band to band before moving to Paradise and re-dedicating my life to God in 1996, AND there was still a lot of work to be done to get me on the right path!
Life has never been the same. Full of good times and quite a few struggles, God never gave up on me and neither did my wife Debbie. I am one solid example that God loves us so much, He never gives up on us!
"Love this place, bringing real and relevant messages to each person who walks in the door. All are welcome!"

For the past 10 years, my wife Susie and I have been a member of Jubilee Church in Paradise, affiliated with the Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee). While a member I have served as Elder, Usher/Greeter, Christian Ed. Leader/Teacher, Counselor, Altar Minister, and a member of the Pastor’s Church Leadership Team. I completed the Calling and Ministry Studies (CAMS) in 2013 and am currently licensed as an Exhorter/Pastor through the Church of God.
Prior to my calling to serve as an Associate Pastor, I served God as the Chief Educational Officer (Principal/Supt.) of Champion Christian School in Chico, CA for 7 years. Prior to that service I served for some 30 years in both public and private schools in Educational Leadership capacities.
I currently am employed at CSU Chico, and serve as a University Supervisor (for administrative and teaching candidates, and interns), Instructor and Program Coordinator for the M.A. in Educational Leadership and Administration Program.
Women’s Ministry Pastor
Originally From Minnesota, growing up in church, then moved to Chico to attend CSU,Chico. I received my Bachelor or Arts in Recreation Administration & relocated to Hawaii for 2 1/2 years where I met my husband, Alfredo. It wasn't until we moved to Paradise in '95 that I truly submitted to God's will in my life.
I've had multiple management positions, worked in volunteer management & marketing for the Girl Scouts I've been involved in woman's ministries, counseling, and managed a traveling outreach ministry band with my husband for five years. Most recently I have worked 7 years as an HR Manager for a large church. My heart now reaches out to those afflicted with chronic disease & seeing the miracles of Jesus alive in the church. I have a tender heart for women of all ages and love investing in people. I believe church flourishes when relationships are built & mentoring occurs.
Missions & Outreach
Susie Stout is the wife of Associate Pastor Rick Stout. She has been affiliated with Church of God for 10 years. For the past 5 years she has been involved in the ministry of helps, serving as usher, alter minister and co-counselor with her husband, Rick.
Her life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.” Basically, live your life with faith and trust in the One who knows you best!!
It is my prayer that the Rock of Life Fellowship minister to those who are not currently plugged into a church or who have left the church and are looking to reconnect and reestablish their personal relationship with JESUS! Also, to love on people through compassion and understanding at a personal, REAL level.
