Meet Our Pastors and Elder Board

Pastor Jordan Wong

Senior Pastor

Pastor Jordan came to Almaden Neighborhood Church in the fall of 2006 with a passion for seeing the community transformed by the love of Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit.  He has a firm belief that the church is called to reach out to people of all races, cultures, and ages.  Jordan and his wife, Becca have been married since 1999 and have an incredible daughter, Jada.

His educational background includes a Bachelor’s in communication from Wake Forest University in North Carolina and a Master’s of Divinity in Chinese and Bi-Cultural Pastoral Ministry from Alliance Theological Seminary in New York.  Before coming to ANC, Jordan served as an associate pastor at Goodwill Evangelical Presbyterian Church in New York’s Hudson Valley. Jordan is a graduate of the Arrow Leadership Program. He also serves as a volunteer prison chaplain with Correctional Institutions Chaplaincy and serves on the board of directors for Kids Club Consultants.

Jordan loves hanging out with people, rooting for the New York Mets, going indoor rock climbing and running very slowly in extreme obstacle course races. Check out his blog at https://jordanthewong.wordpress.com/

Pastor Jared Hostetler is married to his best friend Jennifer since 2002 and they are blessed with one amazing son Andrew. Pastor Jared has worked with elementary age kids since he was 17 years old including running his own business teaching sports to kids here in the Bay Area since the Fall of 2001. Jared has been at Almaden Neighborhood Church since the fall of 2007 and started working with the youth shortly after. Jared never pictured himself working with Junior/Senior high students, but God has changed his heart and now, he can’t see himself in any other ministry. His passion to see young men and women come to know the Lord and walk with Him daily is the driving force behind all he does.

Jared in early 2016 received his pastoral license though the Christian & Missionary Alliance. He still works with the students as he continues his pursuit of higher education and ordination.

Jared enjoys hanging with his family, sports of all types (especially basketball, go Pistons), camping, gardening, peanut butter cups, Oreos and mayonnaise (not all together).
