About Us

Our Mission

"The mission of GC2 Church is to glorify God by loving Him, loving people, and making disciples locally and globally."

Our Values


We value Christ-centered relationships that are developed around authenticity, transparency, and trust. We strive for our relationships to embody the “one-another” passages. (Rom. 12:10; John 13:34; Gal. 6:2)

Unconditional Love

As God unconditionally loves the world, we strive to love all people unconditionally, serving them in the name of Christ. (1 Pet. 4:8: John 3:16)

Lives Transformed By Scripture & The Holy Spirit

We strive to be changed and empowered by the Word and Spirit in order to be more like Christ and to do His will. (Rom. 8:29)

Ethnic & Generational Diversity

We are committed to being a church that brings people of varied backgrounds together into one body. (Rev. 7:9)

Sharing the Gospel

The Gospel is the ultimate answer to the needs of our troubled and broken world. Out of love for others we commit to sharing the Good News so that people will choose Christ as their Savior and follow Him. (1 Pet. 3:15)

Our Beliefs

This is how we view God, Jesus, the Bible, man, and many significant aspects of our faith. Firmly rooted in Scripture, our beliefs guide our decisions as a church.

Our Leadership


Jason Fizzard


Jason grew up in the Huntington Beach area and graduated from California Lutheran University with a business marketing degree. With a restlessness in his heart to see the world after graduation, he spent one year traveling and exploring the world. Upon returning, he felt the Lord began to direct his heart to look at ways to serve abroad, and specifically, grow in spiritual maturity.

A year later, God opened the door to receive a year of training in Australia and India with Youth With a Mission (YWAM), and Capernwray Bible School in New Zealand. During this season, the Lord began to put a strong passion in his heart for missions. Upon returning he pursued a teaching credential and began working as a teacher in public schools. Jason and Jill began to feel God stir their hearts for missions, which led them to teach and disciple university students in Vietnam in 2006.  Their “three-year commitment” as newlyweds turned into 16 wonderful years in Vietnam as a family of six.


In 2017, Jason transitioned into a pastoral role at Hanoi International Fellowship until the Lord redirected them to San Diego in July 2022. Jason is a graduate of Arrow Leadership and has master’s degrees in Applied Biblical Studies (Moody Bible Institute), TESOL & Intercultural Communication (Wheaton College), and an M.Div. from Western Seminary. He loves hanging out with Jill and his four fantastic kids playing board games, hiking, playing basketball, reading, surfing, mountain biking, and is new to the game of pickleball!


Jill McMahon

Children's Ministry Director

Jill moved to the San Diego area over a decade ago, when her husband’s work transferred them here from Chicago. Both she and her husband were formerly from the Philadelphia area. Originally a classically trained singer, Jill found yet another calling when she became a wife and mom. Working with children and helping them learn about God is incredibly fulfilling. What could be more important?


Karla Ng

Awana Ministry Director

Karla and her husband, Caleb, have been San Diegans for over 19 years. Along with their energetic teenage son, Trevor, they are blessed to serve in Awana together as a family. Karla graduated from Biola University with her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and works as a Pediatric nurse at Rady Children’s Hospital. Her children’s ministry experiences include: Awana Club Director, Sunday school teaching, Vacation Bible School Family Leader, and Community Bible Study Children’s program teacher. “I love children and it is such a blessing to see God’s work in their hearts and lives from the time they are very young. Being the hands and feet of Jesus to His precious children is my passion.”


Jessica Teng

Worship Leader

Jessica volunteers her time leading our worship band ministry. She and her husband, Casey, were the first couple married in GC2 and have been plugged in all over the church for years. They are raising their three children, Kensi, Callen, and Addy. Jessica calls herself an almost-stay-at-home-mom, and she is also a nurse with Kaiser Permanente.
