  • Joel Willoughby

    Canadian singer-songwriter Joel Willoughby has absorbed plenty of culture in his life; growing up overseas with globe-traveling parents. With such varied life experiences, that well-traveled, world-weary soul can’t help but show up in his songs; think folk-tinged pop akin to Josh Rouse, & the artful, ambient touches of Sufjan Stevens. Joel Willoughby has been featured on the Hollister in-store playlist, local radio, & television.

  • JOhn hwang

    John has been in full-time ministry since 1991 as a pastor, missionary, and worship leader in three different continents: North America, South America, and Europe. The call to ministry came to him when he was 14 years old, and since then, God has opened doors for him to teach His word in churches, conferences, camps, and colleges. His preaching style is expositional with a strong emphasis of Christ in the Biblical text. Today, he serves at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa as a teaching pastor and overseer of the young adults ministry called OPEN.

  • Jeff Gipe

    Jeff is the Lead Pastor of Newport Coast Lighthouse in Southern California.

    Jeff was a local business man who owned and operated his own company for many years. He went from being motived by money to being motivated by the love of Jesus Christ! After a life-changing trip to Israel in 1992 with Pastor Chuck Smith, the Lord opened a door for him to attend the School of Ministry program at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. For five years following his graduation from the SOM in 1994, he taught two home Bible studies, served as a high school counselor, and was the surf coach for Calvary Chapel High School.   

    In 2003 Jeff was asked to serve over the college and career ministry at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, which he did for two years as a lay pastor. During those two years the Lord began to prepare him to plant a church in Newport Beach, where he has been serving as the lead pastor of Newport Coast Lighthouse since 2005.
