Church Leader

Jeremy Stalnecker

Jeremy Stalnecker

Pastor Jeremy Stalnecker grew up in Hemet, California, and accepted Christ as his Savior in 1982. He has been the pastor of Bay Area Baptist Church since August of 2008 and serves the Lord here with his wife Susanne and their four children. Although he grew up in a pastor’s home, Pastor Stalnecker did not immediately enter full time ministry. Upon graduating from college, Pastor entered the United States Marine Corps as an infantry officer eventually serving in Iraq in 2003 with the First Battalion Fifth Marines. The Lord used his time in the Marine Corps to turn his heart toward full time ministry and would eventually open the door for him to join the staff of his home church, Coastline Baptist, in Oceanside, California. Here he gained valuable ministry experience that would equip him for the further leading of God to our church. After serving for five years as an assistant pastor with various roles including adult ministries, outreach, and discipleship the Lord opened the door forhim to move from there and fulfill the capacity of senior pastor at Bay Area Baptist. Pastor’s vision for Bay Area Baptist Church is that we would be a church dedicated to the great commission of Christ by leading others into a relationship with Him, loving each other and the world through the church, and living a life of true discipleship to Christ. We are excited to think of what God will do in the days ahead!
