Courtney loves to share the gospel relationally with mothers and mentor young women. The Jackson family enjoys to do anything outside; swim, canoe, garden, hunt, fish, bike ride, play with Rogue, and have campfires, to name a few.

JOHN DELEON, WORSHIP PASTOR
I’m John Deleon, I’m 30 years young and I was born in Salinas, California but now consider myself a full-blown Texan. I came to Christ serving as the drummer in my youth worship team and it was there that I discovered a desire to lead worship and serve the church. When I’m not busy leading Foundation Church in worship I spend my time as a freelance graphic designer. Art has always been a huge part of my life and a passion that translated well into my musical career as I was growing up. Some of my other hobbies include reading, hiking, and spending time with friends. One of my larger goals in life is to serve the church through the ministry of worship and to lead and train those who wish to grow in their giftings for the service of the church and the glory of God.
