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.

Pastor of Adult Ministries

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.)
