Rich Cundall

Lead Pastor

Born and raised in Sebastopol, I met my wife Laurie when I was ten years old. I played college basketball at Biola, where I graduated, and I went on to play professional basketball in France. Laurie and I got married right here at Hessel Church in 1982 and have since raised four children together: Candace, Rose, David, and Carly.

I joined the staff at Hessel in 1986 as the youth pastor and became the lead pastor in 1992. My vision is to help people follow Jesus and be His presence in this generation, and train up the next generation of leaders and Jesus followers.
