Meet the Staff

  • Matt Hoyt

    Pastor, Head of Staff

    I have been the pastor of Orchard Community Church since 2008 and I absolutely love this great family of faith. I graduated from Westmont College in 1991 with degrees in Religious Studies and Sociology. I got my Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2000 and my Doctor of Ministry in 2013 from Fuller Theological Seminary. During Seminary as part of my pastoral training I served churches in Scotland and New Jersey. Since then I have served churches in California. I have a wonderful wife named Melinda and three great daughters, Bailey, Anna and Ella. I like to read, play guitar and spend time at Lake Tahoe.

  • Your Name Here!

    Youth Director

    We are looking for a new Youth Director! If you have questions regarding our youth programs contact the church office.

  • Judy Rose

    Children’s Ministry Director

    I have the honor of shepherding our amazing volunteers as they help kids grow in their faith and grow deeper with their peers. I have an amazing husband and two sons. When I’m not driving them to school, sports or skate parks, I enjoy reading, camping, the beach, and hiking.

  • Jimmy Mac

    Worship Director

    I have been a professional musician for over 25 years. I have a passion for Christian Worship. I believe that God has called us to be worshippers and I am thrilled to be able to use my talents to help people draw closer to God through music. I have been involved in staff positions in several churches from 100 to 5,000 member congregations. I am thrilled to be a part of Orchard where we have a mixed blend of ages and a friendly, loving, family of believers. I have been married for 30 years and have 3 boys in college who are all Eagle Scouts. I love skiing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, horseback riding, and camping.

  • Deya Jacob

    Choir Director

    I have been singing in a choir since I was 6 years old, and I’ve been directing the Orchard adult choir since 2011. I believe that a church choir can be fun and interesting but that it must also focus on worshiping and glorifying God – so a church choir should always sing their best for God! In my free time, I run my home-based bakery business, try to keep up with my son, Ben, and hang out with my husband, Jeremy. I prefer pie to cake, love to garden with succulents, and would love to move to France one day.

  • Alisa Bossoletti

    Communications Coordinator

    I love my job of getting “the word” out about all the fun and amazing things God is doing around and through Orchard. I also am a High School Youth Leader and love hanging out with the students. I am married to Kevin and we have two wonderful daughters – Lily and Olivia. We love being outdoors; softball, camping and hiking.

  • Lisa Beamer

    Office Coordinator

    I was a professional volunteer until this wonderful opportunity came along, now I get to work with, help, and hang out with my church family. How awesome is that! I have a wonderful husband, Bob and two great kids, Ian and Alex. I love to travel and see all the beautiful places God made for us to enjoy. I went to Culinary School and am a foodie at heart. I love hanging out in the kitchen with family and friends preparing great meals.

  • Susan Birge


    I am blessed to be a part of the music team here at Orchard.  Some of you will remember me as teacher Miss Susan at Junior Music Academy.   When I’m not at the piano bench you can find me playing with my grandsons,  bicycle riding with my husband, walking the hills above Ventura, or eating spicy Thai food.   And, I love traveling with my family.

  • Jean Callahan

    Sonshine Preschool Director

    I’ve been Sonshine Preschool’s director for 29 years. I have the best job anyone could ever have. I get to spend my days with wonderful teachers and with lots of energetic preschoolers. We love learning about God’s world together while making friends. What could be more fun?

    My husband, Tim, and I have two grown sons. We’ve worshiped at Orchard Community Church since our boys were little. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities – like gardening, hiking, golfing, and traveling.
