GET TO KNOW A LITTLE ABOUT OUR PASTORS AND STAFF: WHO THEY ARE, WHAT THEY’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHERE THEY THINK YOU CAN FIND PHILLY’S BEST CHEESESTEAK.
Justin Dela Cruz
Exec. Pastor-Locations & Parkside Location Pastorjustin@epic.church
Justin grew up in New Jersey, by the shore, and made the decision to follow Jesus at an early age. He attended the University of Valley Forge to pursue his calling of leading others to Jesus, and there met his wife, Janine. Justin joined the staff in 2013 and is continually learning to follow Jesus fully and lead well.
Justin married Janine in 2006 and they have two kids, Micah and Avalyn. Justin loves learning about leadership, going on adventures with his family, and drinking milkshakes.
Justin has earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Valley Forge in Biblical Studies and a Master’s in Christian Leadership.
The best cheesesteak in Philly, according to Justin: Dalessandro’s. (But he thinks Chubby’s is up there, too. And they have AC.)
