Meet the Team
Jeremy Tullis Kids Director
Jeremy Tullis loves adventure, and he believes the greatest adventure anybody can ever embark on is their relationship with Jesus. He desires to guide parents in their God-ordained role of discipling their kids in a deeper relationship with their Creator, and brings a passion to see the next generation fall in love with Jesus.
Jeremy married his wife Julie in 2000 and they have three kids: Hailey, their oldest, with a larger-than-life personality; Tyler, the middle guy, who can build anything and is an epic mountain biker; and Mady, their youngest, who is a self-proclaimed "talk-a lot-girl." When they are not loading up their Xterra for a family adventure somewhere off the grid, you might find Jeremy standing on top of one of the tallest mountains, racing with the FCA Endurance triathlon team, scaling the side of a rock wall, bombing down a trail on his bike or braving storms in the backcountry of the Sierras.
Jordan Niles North Campus Elementary Director
Jordan Niles was born and raised in Fresno. He is a big guy, but don't let that fool you; he is often referred to as a giant teddy bear. Jordan has a passion for people to have a real relationship with Jesus, and is currently working on a degree in Christian Leadership and Ministry from Fresno Pacific University. He likes to spend his summers in Ukraine working with orphans, and plans to move there in the future to be a missionary.
When he is not helping kids know Jesus or doing his homework, he likes to hang out with the loves of his life: his wife Danay and son Patrick. Jordan also loves to talk sports with his friends, drink coffee and take naps.
Shaina Hough Fig Garden Elementary Director
Shaina Hough was born and raised in Madera Ranchos, married a boy she fell in love with at age 5, and they have three spirited kids. God threw her into children’s ministry in 2010 and she’s never looked back. (Okay, she may have paused for a bit just to be sure she’d heard Him correctly.)
When she’s not surrounded by children, Shaina enjoys running, reading and yoga. She relies on Jesus and coffee to get her through life because adulting is hard. Shaina also studied Political Science and Economics at Fresno State, but has yet to impress any 2 year olds with her knowledge of supply and demand.
