Pastor Renee Rose

M.A. Education / CA Teaching Credential

In 1997, Renee moved from a career in law enforcement as a Crime Scene Investigator, to a career in education. She served in the Capistrano Unified School District for 14 years as a teacher and as a member of the Teaching Development Program supporting new teachers district wide. In 2009, Renee and her husband George began Kingdom Life Academy, a Holy Spirit led Christian school for children in K-8th grade. Today the school has expanded to include a high school program and an adult school of ministry and now is called Jesus Life. Renee is passionate about creating an atmosphere where people of all ages can encounter the Holy Spirit and learn the Truth of God’s Word. She carries with her the joy of the Lord and loves to encourage others in their pursuit for God. She is passionate about this generation of youth and believes that people of all ages and backgrounds can experience the transformational power of God in their lives. Renee's heart is for multigenerational worship and activation, where each family member is equipped to proclaim the gospel with truth, love, wisdom and power.
