House Pastor - Julie Hostetler
Pastor Juli, daughter of the senior pastors, has been involved with the Christian Temple Church all her life. At age 11, she started playing piano with the worship band. At age 20 she became the leader of the Praise and Worship team. She received her ordination in 2011 from the Christian Temple Church. She is now pastor over the music department, and also works with her ministry "Connection" which launched in 2012. "Connection" is a place where young adults 18-25 can fellowship and seek a closer walk with Christ. Her favorite scripture is Jeremiah 1:4-10 - Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations." Then said I: "Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth." But the Lord said to me: "Do not say, 'I am a youth; For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you." says the Lord. Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: "Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant."
