Our Elders

An elder is a pastor who shepherds through protecting, teaching, leading, managing, and caring for the needs of Jesus' people (1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, 1 Peter 5:1-4). 

Jesse Smout

Originally from Montana, Jesse moved to Ogden while in elementary school. Jesse felt the call to pastoral ministry while still a young teenager. He began leading Bible studies, Youth Group and assisting in any capacity available. Eventually Jesse became our Pastor in December 2020.

Outside of pastoring, Jesse enjoys coffee in the mornings, disc golf and camping. Jesse is married to his high school sweetheart, Cecelia. They have two boys together: Luke and Samuel.
**Our church is currently searching for another Elder to serve alongside Jesse**
