Our Elders

As a church, we believe in a plurality of elders whose function is to teach, oversee, and shepherd the church. Please see our statements for more information.

Here are our elders:

Jon Kile Jon Kile, Pastor:
I was born in Portland, Oregon, and I grew up in Tigard, Oregon. I came to know the love and grace of Christ at an early age, and I knew from early on that God was calling me into some sort of full-time ministry. I went to Bible College at Pacific Christian College in Fullerton, California, where I met my wife Tiffany. After getting married and graduating from Bible College, we moved to Johnson City, Tennessee to go to seminary at Emmanuel School of Religion where I received my M. Div. degree. While in seminary I preached part-time at a small country church, and then after graduation I began full-time ministry which I have been doing since 1995. I graduated from The Master's Seminary with a Doctorate of Ministry degree in May 2009. I have three wonderful daughters: Katie, Emily, and Allison. My two passions are preaching God's wonderful Word and evangelism. I love the Lord with my whole heart, and I look forward to serving Him at Faith Community Church for many years to come.
Carl Smith Carl Smith:
I came to know Christ as a teenager in 1973 and attended Tennessee Temple University (B.A. in Theology, 1981). I served as a missionary pastor from 1982 to 1989 and then felt called to teaching. I received my California credential from National University in 1990. Since 1992 I have been teaching and coaching golf. I have also served as youth pastor and elder at Grace Fellowship of Dixon from 1995 through 2000. Since 2002 when FCC first started, my wife Christine and I have been leading and hosting a Faith Group (home Bible study). I feel very privileged to be among the elders serving at Faith Community Church and I am very excited about where God is leading us.
Tony Shipp Tony Shipp:
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, where I went to high school and attended my first four years of college. I later graduated from California State University of Sacramento. In 1973 while attending California State University of Long Beach, God revealed to me my own reprobate heart and convinced me that I was in need of salvation. God opened my heart and my eyes that night and brought me into His royal family. In 1981 while serving in the U.S. Air Force, at Travis AFB in California I met and married my wonderful wife, Carolyn, and we now have three wonderful adult children, Chanda, Crystal and Joshua. When I left the U.S. Air Force I became a police officer, where I worked for the next 26 1/2 years. During many of those years I attended Sovereign Grace Baptist Church of Vacaville, and served as a deacon for approximately 20 years. While there I was blessed with the opportunity to preach and teach God's word. In 2001 Sovereign Grace Baptist Church was forced to close its doors and in 2002 my family and I joined Faith Community Church of Vacaville. In 2006 God called me into the ministry to assist with His work at Faith Community Church.
David Truesdell David Truesdell:
What could be better? As youth pastor, I am able to serve the Lord and work with an amazing group of teens. Ever since I can remember, I have been working with youth. After graduating from college, I spent thirteen years teaching in the public school system. In 2005, while already attending FCC, I felt God call me to make a change and take my love for Him and passion for youth to be part of the staff at Faith Community as the youth pastor. What a blessing it is to be able to teach and mentor, but to do it for the purpose of spreading the Gospel and the edifying of the saints.
