“This is the day The Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalm 118:24

Born and raised on the East Coast, I moved to California and joined The United Stated Marine Corps. After completed boot camp, I was given orders to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, here in Oceanside. Feeling lonely for the love of my life I sent for Rosemary and we began a wonderful journey here a, what was then Oceanside Church of God. God blessed our union with five amazing boys, all of whom were dedicated, baptized and/or married here at Oceanside Church of God.

I have always believed that leaning about and growing in The Lord is a family affair, and as a family we all have many wonderful memories of our Christian walk. Memories such as pot lucks, picnics, revival meetings, and plays, all centered around the Lord.

In the 70’s under the leadership of a number of God-led pastors, I came to the realization that God had placed a calling upon my life for ministry. Currently, as the associate pastor of Oceanside Community Church, (formerly Oceanside Church of God), I love encouraging my pastor, and helping the church family here to reach out to and follow Christ.

In the Book of Matthew, Jesus said; “Come, follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.” Leading people to Christ is exciting! The miracle of winning someone to faith in Jesus Christ surpasses and thrill this world will ever have to offer. I am blessed to be able to serve God and Oceanside Community Church.

Worship Pastors
E-mail Jervin & Teah Sy

Hi,  I’m Pastor Jervin Sy.  I am serving as Worship Pastor at Oceanside Community  Church. I am married to my wife  Teah Sy, who is also serving with me as  my co-Worship Pastor. The LORD called us into His Ministry in the Philippines in 1984, where we served in a community branch of the Jesus is Lord Church as Music and Worship Leaders and eventually as Pastors, reaching people with the Gospel of the love and grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. The LORD then called us to the main church  and had the honor and privilege to  lead a congregation of 15, 000  on Sunday services. We felt God leading and calling us here in the US, where we served as Assistant Pastor and Pastor of Music at Old Town Church of San Diego for thirteen years since 1999 until May of 2013 when the LORD called us to be part of His family here at OCC.

We have been blessed with two beautiful children,  Joannah & Joshua whom the Lord also graced and anointed to minister with us  in  the Worship Team. Our passion is to usher the Church to worship the LORD and experience His manifest presence.  It is our greatest desire to see the lost saved, the sick healed, the distressed relieved, the broken restored, and the discouraged empowered to victory by receiving the abundant grace of God and His gift of righteousness through our LORD Jesus Christ.

As for Ministerial Education, my wife and I completed  Pastoral Care Diploma from Jesus is Lord Church School of Ministry.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Ministry from Concordia Theologica Institute for Biblical Studies. I also received an Honorary Doctorate Degree from The Christian Ministry Institute in Granbury Texas.

We feel so blessed to be a part of this warm and loving Church at Oceanside Community Church of God.

My name is Melynda Morace and I am blessed to be working part time in the church office here at OCCOG.

I was fortunate to have been raised in a Christian home with wonderful believing parents.

I accepted the Lord at the age of 10 while attending The Church of God in Santee California. At the age of 28 I rededicated my life to Christ at a church here in North County.

I have been involved in some type of volunteer ministry for as long as I can remember, and am blessed to be able to continue to do so now.

I have a wonderful caring family whom I love dearly and I am proud to say I love my church family as well.
