Pastors & Staff


Matthew Schlesinger

Lead Pastor
Matthew and Sabrina were married in 2000 and served as pastors alongside Matthew’s parents for ten years in Oregon. The dream God placed in their hearts years earlier unfolded and in December of 2012 they joined the Grace team as Lead Pastors in their favorite city, San Diego. Matthew is fun and authentic. He loves God’s Word, places priority on His Presence, and believes that the local church is the hope of the world. Matthew & Sabrina are the proud parents of three beautiful daughters and one amazing son. Their family mission is to populate heaven and plunder hell.

Sabrina Schlesinger

Lead Pastor
Sabrina is a wife, mother, speaker, podcast host, and founder of www.MomMentor.org, a ministry that brings advice and encouragement to moms at every stage in life. Her passion is that no mom should go through life alone without anybody to lean on and turn to. In addition to Mom Mentor, Sabrina and Matthew host two podcasts, Parenting on the Go and Marriage on the Go. Both podcasts offer Biblical and practical advice on parenting and marriage. Every episode is brief so you can listen to them in the carpool lane, at the gym, grocery shopping, and anywhere you are "on the go!" You can subscribe and listen to them every week on iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify.
