Life Mission Church is a church in Escondido, California, and began in the heart of Lead Pastor Jobey McGinty. Previous to planting Life Mission, Jobey was on staff at his previous church for 11 years, primarily serving as the Creative Arts Pastor and worship leader for the first 9 1/2 years before transitioning in early 2011 into a different role as a Teaching Pastor.
Before long, Jobey’s heart began to stir more and more for teaching and preaching God’s truth, as he began to personally encounter God’s love and grace more deeply through His Word. Soon his heart was being given new desires to teach the Word in a capacity that he never saw himself doing: leading a church.
After much wrestling with this, he finally shared this new burden with his wife, and after a couple months of praying together, they sought out other friends and leaders seeking godly counsel and asking for further insight and prayer.
October 6, 2012 at Jobey and Katie's House.
Within the first week, about 25 people decided to take that first step of faith to come alongside for this new work, and on October 6, 2012, Life Mission Church had its first official group meeting in Jobey and Katie’s home.
Over the next 3 months, God had brought about 45 people to be a part of the early pioneering team to help plant the church, and it was an incredible group of people. In a very short amount of time, God did a lot in unifying us and rallying us together through prayer, the Word, worship, and fellowship.
And so with one final prayer, we ended our time as the Life Mission Launch Team on January 6, 2013 and became known simply as Life Mission Church, a people who know that we have been saved to be sent. And the best is yet to come.
Praying before our first service on January 6, 2013.
