Pastor Geoff Alfassa
Geoff Alfassa loves Jesus Christ because Jesus saved him from his sins and reconciled him to God! He is one of the Pastors at Redeemed South Bay in Torrance, CA, and considers it a great privilege to partner with the work God is doing in Southern California by teaching people to love God and make disciples locally and globally. He passionately pursues encouraging people to live their lives focused on Jesus’ Great Commission. He has lead and been involved on short-term mission trips to Mexico (2006, 2007), Malawi (2007), Nicaragua (2008), Western China (2009), Eastern China (2010), Albania (2015), and Cambodia (2016 & 2017).
Geoff and five other pastors started Redeemed South Bay in November 2013. Before this, Geoff served three years as an Associate Pastor at Hope Chapel in Hermosa Beach, and has been involved in serving students in Southern California for the last ten years. Geoff is married to a wonderful woman named Joanna. They have been married for six years and have a five-year-old son named Elias, and a three-year-old daughter named Adeline, and a 1 year old baby girl Elisabeth. His family’s passion is to share the good news of the forgiveness of sins accomplished by Jesus Christ’s work on the cross for all who believe.
Geoff’s hobbies include theological studies, spoken word, Settlers of Catan, backgammon, playing sports: ping pong, football, basketball, hockey, and tennis. He thoroughly enjoys being challenged in any of these activities, and loves winning…people to Christ. Geoff received B.A. in Biblical Studies from Biola University and is also currently working on his Masters of Divinity at The Master's Seminary.
“...in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.”
