Jose & Sherry Ochoa
Position: Youth Pastors

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Jose Ochoa and I have been actively involved with the youth ministries at Horizon Christian Fellowship since 1997.  I got saved as a youth when I was 15 years old but I backslid right away because I had no discipline or discipleship.  At the age of 22, I hit rock bottom and got tired of living a double life.  I called upon the name of the Lord to save me again and He did!

I have now been consistently following Jesus for 12 years and plan on serving Him for the rest of my life. I am also a West Sacramento native graduate from River City High in 1993.  My post-secondary education was through William Jessup University, where I graduated from in 2006.  I became a licensed minister in 2007.  

I am blessed to have the best youth group in the whole universe and the greatest wife in the whole galaxy - Sherry Ochoa. Our first child, Josiah, is on his way.  God is good!  My goal is to help young people grow in their relationships with Jesus, family and others. I also have a strong desire to teach young people the importance of sharing their faith and living it.  A person who is genuinely following Christ will be counterculture!

We invite all students in grades 7 through 12 to check out the Counterculture student service every Thursday at 7:00 p.m.  You are also welcome to be with us on Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. for the U-Turn Discipleship group.  See you there!
