"As Pastor of Pipeline Church, I'm excited to see what God will continue to do with His church as we lead out in this fresh expression of His work."

 Growing up in a pastor’s home in Southern California, Jeff experienced a call to ministry in a  powerful way while on a mission trip in Siberia, Russia. Jeff attended Azusa Pacific University  (’94-’98) on scholarship for both Track and Football where he was a 8-time all-American and a 4-  time national champion with the track team. With a degree in both christian ministries and  philosophy.

 Jeff married his college sweetheart (Cindy Dykstra) shortly after graduation from APU and began  the journey of leading within the church full-time. For the last 18 years, Jeff and Cindy Atherton  have served as a response to the call of God in their lives.

 Today, Jeff and Cindy live in Visalia and have three beautiful daughters: Rylie (14), Rhayana (12),  Rowyn (9)- all the girls attend Central Valley Christian school and love serving at both school and  church. Jeff is a passionate speaker who loves sharing from the word and working with just  about any group that offers an opportunity.
