David and Jeanie Richardson have been married for over 30 years; have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. They have been involved in ministry for over 30 years, graduated from several bible schools, licensed as ministers over 20 years ago, and were ordained 6 years ago. They have traveled nationally and internationally teaching in Bible schools, seminars, and conferences. They are recently Founders and Lead Pastors of Firepoint Church in Tujunga, Ca.
David and Jeanie have deep roots in the Sunland/ Tujunga area. David grew up in the Sunland/ Tujunga area, and graduated from Verdugo Hills High School. David and Jeanie have owned two homes in the area and their children attended several schools locally.
David was raised by his mom and dad. His dad was agnostic so they didn’t attend church. When he was 19, he found it was hard to decide on what career to pursue. During this time he began to have a deep desire to know God, and what His purposes where for his life; It was not enough to know what he was to do, but why.
In David’s pursuit for his life’s meaning, he began to study various religions. One day, as he opened a Bible, he found the word’s spoke by Jesus were printed in red. As he began to read them, it was as if they came alive and began to speak to him personally. David became persuaded of God’s love and purpose for his life, and so committed his life to Jesus.
Jeanie was raised in San Fernando by a single working mom. She rarely went to church, but her mom told her of Jesus’ love for her. So, even as a little girl, Jeanie longed for God and would watch Christian programs on television and pray to dedicate her life to Him.
When 14, a friend invited Jeanie to church and began taking her regularly. And so began a life long journey of learning about and experiencing the character, faithfulness, and love of God.
David and Jeanie have dedicated their lives to serving Jesus Christ and others, and are devoted to reaching out to those in need and equipping people in their God-given destinies. As pastors of Firepoint Church, they have a desire to bridge the gap between people and God, bringing people closer to an understanding of His love for them.
David and Jeanie love to travel, and play disc-golf!
