Guest Speaker Jim AsselinJim Asselin

Jim is a Chaplain with the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety in the Silicon Valley, a Pastor at Trinity Church of Sunnyvale, a General Contractor, a father of five, and a husband of one – Karen.

Jim believes he, along with all believers, is called out to a life of purpose. He realizes that doubts come when we try to do life on our own and forget that it is Christ in us – His supernatural Spirit – who accomplishes anything of eternal value. That simplicity – in all of its complexity – allows our shortcomings to be something that God can build upon. 

A river guide himself, three of his five kids (James, Ellen, Zechariah) have taken on the responsibility of guiding groups at Rock-N-Water. The river is a home away from home. When his kids were small, Jim and Karen asked them “Would you rather we go to Disneyland? Or buy some rafts?”

… the rest is history.
