• Mark Schumacher - Senior Pastor

    I was a former atheist who was saved as a young man while working in Saudi Arabia.  The fellowship I was raised in was composed of ex-patriots from 42 nations.  Upon my return to the US, I completed a Discipleship Training School (DTS) with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) El Paso.  I remained on staff with YWAM for a short period after my DTS. I served for a season as the Administrative Pastor for Jesus Chapel Northeast El Paso and as an English Pastor at El Paso Agape Mission Church El Paso, TX.  For the past 11 years I have worked primarily overseas (South Africa, Kuwait, Iraq, & India) as an administrative manager on large construction projects.

  • Jill Giallanza - Children's Pastor (overseeing Nursery thru 8th grade)

    I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior at the age of 11 and my parents, siblings and I were all baptized together soon afterwards. My family and I grew through the years to love and serve the Lord and were a part of the beginnings of the first Jesus Chapel in east El Paso. I met my husband of 30+ years, Evan Giallanza, in youth group there. We later married and were honored to serve the Lord together for over 30 years, first on the eastside and then here on the westside at Jesus Chapel.

    I have had the privilege of teaching and loving children for over 18 years both at Jesus Chapel School and the Church. I love the Word of God and find it exciting to create lessons, teach, and love God’s precious children.  I have a desire to see the GOOD NEWS catch the hearts of kids and move mightily in their lives so that they would know  Jesus in a personal way as Lord and Savior.

    Not everyone is blessed with their dream job. I am. I am so blessed.

  • Reyna Esparza - Multi-Media/Church Office

    I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in 2005 after living in the occult for many years.  I hadn't realized I was living in such darkness until the light of Christ shone so bright that I could see no other life but the one He would have for me.  I have since dedicated my life to serving Him in any capacity to which I am able.  I currently work on all the media needs at Jesus Chapel, as well as office needs.
