Pastor, Staff, and Church  Board

Jason Tippitt

Lead Pastor

Pastor Jason is a lover of Jesus, a husband (wife: Carrie) and a father of 3 daughters (Faith, Audrey and Rachel). Jason came to College Ave. Church as a graduate of Point Loma Nazarene University in 1999 as the Youth Pastor and served in that capacity until 2011 when the Church called him to the Lead Pastor role.  
Pastor Jason is passionate about seeing lives transformed through the power of the Gospel!  He loves to fish, play golf and hang out with friends over a good meal!

Dawn Maliff

Children's Director

Dawn Maliff has served as part-time staff at College Ave. Church of the Nazarene for over 20 years. In addition to her work at CACNaz, she is the full-time Clinical Director for PIH Home Health. Dawn grew up in the Wesleyan Church with her father as the only Pastor she ever knew until he retired and they found their new home at College Ave. Church.

Dr. Forrest Stone

Pastor Emeritus 

Pastor Stone faithfully pastored Whittier, College Ave. Church of the Nazarene for 24 years until his retirement in 2010. Like so many who have been called into vocational ministry, Pastor Stone did not view retirement as the end of his ministry but rather as a new chapter in his life of ministry.
College Ave. Church of the Nazarene is blessed to have Dr. Stone as part of our ongoing ministry team as mentor, teacher, preacher, and friend.
