Danny Wallen – Lead Pastor

wallensComing from a 6th generation Californian family, Danny has spent about half of his life in Northern California and half in Southern California.  Most recently, he and his family moved from San Clemente after serving as the Equipping Pastor at Rock Harbor Church, Costa Mesa.  Danny’s no stranger to the Santa Cruz area—having served over a dozen years at both Mount Hermon and Mission Springs Conference Centers.  He earned degrees from Biola University (BS Biology ’88), Talbot Seminary (MDiv ’93), and Fuller Seminary (DMin ’07).  Danny has been happily married to Maria for almost 23 years, and is the proud father to Sierra (20), Summer (18), and Isaac (16).  In his free time, he enjoys Santa Cruz’s world-class surfing, biking and golfing.

Danny is excited to lead, care for, and coach the multi-generational High Street Community Church—in ways that invite all people to enjoy Jesus and each other, and to then share what they’ve received.
