  • George Willis Lead Pastor roundedemail

    Pastor George (or PG) is excited to be part of the Creekside team again! Originally Creekside’s Youth and Worship Pastor since 2001, he planted Generations Church in 2011. After leading there for 10 years, George clearly heard God’s call to return. He loves these people and this community, and has a strong heart for worship and the Word.


    Married to his wife Kristen since 1997, they have one adult daughter, Madison. When he is relaxing, Pastor George loves to golf and mountain bike - especially in Lake Tahoe, which he says is “God’s very own backyard”. He is also perpetually seeking awesome food and a great cup of dark roast coffee (along with some See’s Nuts & Chews, of course!)

  • Jesse Rosette Youth Pastor  roundedemail

    Jesse moved from Bend, OR to Martinez to be a part of the Creekside Church team in March 2021. Jesse has been married to his wonderful wife, Brooke, since 2018. He is passionate about his relationship with Christ and desires to see others know Him too. Jesse has a love for music and this is what God used to get him into ministry. He has been serving in youth ministry since 2017. Jesse discovered God’s purpose for his life through youth group and this is why he has such joy in partnering with and discipling the youth. Jesse likes coffee, movies, good food and good books. In his off time, he loves being outdoors with his wife and with friends.

  • Christina waldo children's pastor roundedemail

    Christina Waldo was born and raised in Martinez and moved back to the Bay Area in 2020 after spending almost ten years working and serving in youth ministry in both Oregon and Iowa. She and husband Jacob have been married since 2014 and have dedicated themselves to the spiritual growth and development of the next generation. Christina’s biggest desire is to see children and their families enter into a real and personal relationship with the living God; creating a true family ministry, not just another Sunday school experience. In her time off, you can find Christina at the plant store, a great coffee shop, or out enjoying all that nature has to offer.

    Monique joined the Creekside staff in 2008.

She brings with her a passion to help move the mission forward by leading with strong administrative skills, organization and planning. She is best known around Creekside as “Mo” or the “Go get em’ gal” She oversees all of the church and campus administration, as well as supports all ministries and events here at Creekside. She has a huge heart to see people connect with Christ and others, and enjoys leading the women’s journaling group and being a part of Connection Groups here at Creekside. She feels blessed to be a part of the Creekside family and for the incredible people that she gets to serve alongside each day! 



  • Laurie butler Administrative support roundedemail

    Returning to Martinez and Creekside Church in 2012 has given Laurie more time to spend with extended family, especially grand-nieces & nephews. Laurie has been involved in small group ministry, facilitating women's Creekside Groups. She likes photography, upcycle crafting, studying the Bible and memorizing scripture. She is always on the hunt for the best burgers and new succulent plants for her potted garden.


    "and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life; You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."

    1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
