Speakers for Summer 2019
After accepting the Lord’s call to ministry, Justin studied theology in his childhood home of Pacific Union College where God began opening up preaching opportunities both at home and overseas. Upon graduating in 2008 he began work in Central California where he served as an Associate Pastor at the Fresno Central Church for four years before pursuing a master’s degree at Andrews University. Upon graduating in 2016 he began pastoring the Exeter and Armona SDA Churches, where he served until earlier this year. Justin loves creative evangelism, teaching, new cultures and languages, youth ministry, writing music, and almost anything to do with God’s great outdoors. A descendant of James and Ellen G. White, he also has a love for helping Adventist history come to life. Since February of this year he has been pastoring the Hamilton SDA Church in Australia, and is overjoyed to be joining us with his wife, Charissa!
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Charissa began public speaking at the age of 16. Since then, God has opened doors for her to speak across Australia and the world.

Last year she began serving as the Prayer Ministries Coordinator and Associate Director for Church Revitalization in the North New South Wales Conference, Australia. She’s excited to be joining the Lake Tahoe Campmeeting this year with her newlywed husband, Justin!
