Jude Fouquier and his wife, Becky, are the Lead Pastors of The City Church in beautiful Ventura, California, where they relocated to plant a church in August of 2010. Pastor Jude and his family spent the previous 18 years serving in several capacities at The City Church in Seattle, Washington, including Youth Pastor, Intern Director, and Senior Associate Pastor, as well as an elder. He helped to pioneer that church with Pastors Wendell and Gini Smith and forged the Generation Church ministry there for over ten years - a ministry which currently reaches over 1,500 junior high through college-age individuals weekly. Before he came to Seattle, Pastor Jude got his start in youth ministry after graduating from Oral Roberts University in 1985, when he first became a Youth Pastor under Wally and Marilyn Hickey at the Happy Church in Denver, Colorado. Pastor Jude travels extensively, speaking at church and youth conferences, imparting into the lives of youth, leaders and pastors around the world. Pastor Jude is more than just a prophetic voice and inspiration to youth culture and leaders today; his energy and enthusiasm are contagious! His relentless pursuit of God's will for his own life, commitment to the Bible, and genuine love for people sets him apart as an example and model for the next generation. Pastor Jude loves to walk the beaches of Ventura with his wife, Becky, and finds great enjoyment "being".
