Lifehouse has a new pastor! We welcome Justin, Amy, Liam, Zayden, Declan and Rowan!
Justin and Amy Rupple have been married for 12 years and have 4 young boys: Liam (8), Zayden (5), Declan (3), and Rowan (1). Their home is full of Legos, matchbox cars, trains, and costumes. Their boys have been their greatest gift but also the greatest challenge that God has used to bring transformation. This is especially true of Zayden, their special needs son, who was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Smith Magenis Syndrome when he was just two weeks old. Zayden’s smiles, laughs, and hugs bring such deep joy and his wild tantrums can bring such deep pain. God has taken them on a journey to discover just how intertwined physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual health are.
They are passionate about cultivating a home and a community where health and healing are top priority, creating an environment for God to bring deep transformation that truly changes lives.
Upon receiving the call to pastoral ministry in high school, Justin attended Biola University graduating with a degree in Biblical Studies. Following God’s leading, Amy transferred to Life Pacific College to complete a B.A. in Biblical Studies. Justin & Amy have been serving at The Bridge in Rancho Santa Margarita for over 15 years. Justin joined the pastoral staff in 2010 as the small groups and administrative pastor. In 2015, Justin and Amy became campus pastors as they launched The Bridge’s first extension campus in Mission Viejo.
