Rustin is currently finishing his PhD in Ethics, Theology, and Culture from Claremont Graduate University. He is working on his thesis in the area of creating an ethic of Globalization for the church. His passions are redeveloping congregations, creating new innovative ministries, writing, preaching, teaching, and art. Beyond all things he feels called to help people take themselves and God out of the boxes they have been placed in and expand to their exponential greatness.

Creativity is one of the core values at Bethel. Our incredible worship team is one of the places that core value is clearly lived out. Bethel’s worship team is filled with some of Los Angeles’ most amazing and creative musicians. We love to incorporate all types of music, including many originals. We recognize that God speaks through many forms and we find the sacred in many surprising places. Jake Newton leads our worship team. Jake is the Son of two pastors and is an artist in his own right. He has three albums and is a singer/songwriter, actor and producer.
