Pastors Scott and Deena Siddle accepted the call of God to LifeSpring in May of 2015 and took over the helm June 1, 2015. Scott and Deena come to LifeSpring after ministering and serving in various roles in the Kern River Valley since 1996. Most recently Scott was pastor on staff with Faith Community Church, Wofford Heights, CA. Prior to Faith Community Scott was planting/senior pastor of He Cares Fellowship in Weldon for over ten years. He Cares and Faith Community merged in June of 2014.
Scott and Deena have been blessed with serving in men’s and women’s ministries, youth ministry, music ministry, and administrative ministries since rededicating their lives to the Lord in April of 1994. Scott and Deena pioneered in the entrepreneurial endeavor of building and operating a mom-n-pop Christian Coffee house for over ten years, Son-Rise Espresso in Lake Isabella, Ca.
Feeling the pull on their hearts from God to pursue full time church based ministry in 2012, Scott and Deena began the process of parting with their beloved business venture to follow God’s will. During this same time period the pastor of LifeSpring was beginning the process of seeking to retire and began praying for his replacement. After a three year process of preparation from God…the rest is the beginning of a new chapter for Scott, Deena, and the LifeSpring Church Family.
The primary focus of ministry for Scott and Deena is one of ‘being present’ in people’s lives and experiencing everyday life together; the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful moments. Authenticity and being “real people” are what help them in ministering to others in need. Scott and Deena have a former history in addiction to drugs; being delivered from that lifestyle on April 9, 1994 they have a huge heart for those who face the same struggles.
Scott and Deena have four adult children and eight grandkids. Traveling, snow skiing, camping, bicycling and other outdoor activities have been known to take up any spare time in their lives. They share their home in Ridgecrest with their “fur babies”, two shelter rescued American Staffordshire Terriers, Tekoa and Abby.
