Lead Pastor

Drew Sodestrom

Drew has many passions in life ranging from Starbucks to Bay Area Sports teams, but his biggest passion is to encourage believers to continuously grow in their walk with Christ and to share the Gospel with the lost, a concept he likes to call Ongoing Spiritual Transformation or OST.  Drew also really likes acronyms.  Since completing school at Biola University and seminary at Talbot, Drew has had many roles:  pastor, professor (@ Biola University and William Jessup), caterer (for Johnny Garlics and Guy Fieri), speaker (various Christian camps, conferences and schools), and coach, but none are more important to him than being Jen’s husband and Brayden and Carson and Peyton’s dad.  He is passionate about helping believers know and grow in God and believes OST happens best in community and therefore works to connect all of our adults with a Life Group:  an intentional community that exists to better understand God, and a place to connect with His people.

Executive Pastor

Jarrod Weaver

Jarrod’s mission for life is to increasingly live out his Joy in Jesus in everyplace and everyday of life.  Making Vintage Grace’s vision, "building joy-filled communities of faith" a natural fit.  Before moving to El Dorado Hills in the Summer of 2017, He pastored in Washington State and Sonoma County.  Jarrod loves that he gets to serve Christ’s Bride by equipping and supporting the ministers and ministries of Vintage Grace. God has allowed him the privilege to be husband to Anadee, and father to Karis & Xander.  You can find them enjoying a family movie night or rooting on the Seahawks.

Care and Connections Pastor

Kyle Waggoner

Kyle’s first passion in life was sports and it has grown to include music, people, his family, and great food among other things. Originally from Wichita Falls, TX, Kyle attended Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX and Dallas Seminary where he earned a Th.M. in Pastoral Leadership and Counseling. Kyle and his wife, Bethany have three kids:  Carter, Avery, and Tucker. As a dad, Kyle’s vision is that his kids will grow up seeing and understanding the character of God so that they learn to love and enjoy Jesus. That vision drives his passion to see families at Vintage Grace encounter God in relatable ways so they build a foundation of Christ-centered faith. (Despite holding on to his North Texas sports franchises he is growing in his love and appreciation for the San Francisco Giants and 49ers.)

Adult Ministries Coordinator

Travis Gilley

Travis originally hails from Long Beach, CA. He met his lovely wife, Debbie, at CSULB where he received his degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies. Yes, we checked, it does exist! It wasn’t very hard for Deb to convince Travis that her hometown in NorCal was the perfect place to live. After four years of marriage down South, they finally moved up and quickly joined the VINTAGE GRACE family in 2017. Travis considers himself a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. He loves woodworking and dreaming of the next motorcycle he will own. He holds a few positions here at VINTAGE GRACE and finds absolute joy in each of them. As Adult Ministries coordinator, Travis oversees Guest Services, Life Group connection, and Facility Care. Travis has a huge heart for equipping people to be the living proof of a loving God in every aspect of their life.
