A Place Of Grace
Meet Our Pastor
Chase was born and raised in Vista, Ca where he grew up attending North Coast Church. In 2006, He took a job as the middle school pastor in Las Vegas, NV where he’d meet his wife, Lauren. After 8 years of serving at 2 different churches, God placed a desire to go back home to San Diego in the Feindel’s hearts. It was a conversation with Jason Graves, Lead Pastor of Daybreak Church in Carlsbad, that led to greater clarity in the Feindel’s calling. Daybreak’s desire and timeline to plant a church matched perfectly what God had put on their hearts and so Chase and Lauren moved their young growing family back to North San Diego County.
After 3 years of serving as the Middle School Pastor and a member of Daybreak’s teaching team, the leadership of Daybreak Church and the Feindel’s began dreaming and praying for how God would lead them to a brand new church community. A great setback came when Lauren was diagnosed with breast cancer just weeks before their first service as a church plant. The church plant was put on pause and the core team that felt led to join the Feindel’s on their adventure of church planting rallied around them in love. The services hadn’t started yet but the church had begun. Lauren’s treatment was successful and the launch of Anthem Church officially came to pass in January of 2018!
Chase and Lauren now lead Anthem Church together with their 3 beautiful kids, Sadie (13), Cash (11), and Brooks (9).
