Mike Basil

My name is Mike Basil and I have been working in youth ministry for over twelve years, loving every second of it. It was in high school that I met God in a deep and personal way, and it would be that event at a small prayer meeting that would change my life forever. I went on to Bethany College where I pursued a degree in Church Leadership and where I would also meet my wife Juliana.

I have spent the last decade working with youth in the East Bay and seeing God do amazing things in the lives of students through shaving cream wars, all-night events, week-long trips, epic Nerf wars, and times spent in God’s presence.

Other facts about me:
I have two children Ellie and Elias, a deep love for boardgames, two dogs and three chickens, and I love curry, the food.

Amanda Diehl

Hi! I’m Amanda. I have had the blessing of opportunities to serve in several different ministries over the course of my walk with Christ, but Administration is where my gifting lies. I love partnering with the Lord in what He’s doing behind the scenes, and seeing lives change as a result is such a privilege.

I was born and raised here in the East Bay, have my Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Human Services, am married to my High School sweetheart going on 10 years, and we have 3 sweet kiddos: Caedance, Rayce, and Isaiah.

Fun Facts:

I have a deep affection for coffee (lattes especially!), winter is my favorite season, and I love re-watching shows I’ve seen 1,000 times (The Office and Parks and Rec are big repeaters in my house!).
