Born and raised in a small town in the Hudson Valley area of New York, John moved to the area to attend the University of Maryland. In 2001 John married his wife Joyce who is the biggest blessing God has given him and they moved to Pasadena. During a 2009 Christian Motorcycle Association “church crash” Joyce and John found ACC and have been home here ever since.
Since they met and dated caving and camping, it seems only natural that the Deubler’s enjoy just about any outdoor activity and can be found during their free time hiking, biking, kayaking or just working around the yard. They also enjoy spending time with their grandchildren, both natural and god-grandchildren, and entertaining friends and family alike.

Matt OusdahlLead Pastor
As the Lead Pastor at ACC, Matt helps to cast vision for ACC and it’s various ministries. He loves to teach God’s Word to others, encouraging them in their faith journey. The most rewarding facet of his ministry? Being able to share Jesus with people and watch God change their lives for the better.
Even more than being a pastor, his favorite titles are “husband” and “father”. He married his wife, Melissa, in 2002, and he is adamant that she is the smartest and prettiest girl in any room. Together, they have three daughters: Michaela, Madelin and Molly.
Matt grew up in California, but moved to the East Coast in 1999. He enjoys being around people, especially family. Travel, In-N-Out Burger, Texas Hold’em, and improvisational comedy are among his top favorite things.

John is originally from Michigan but has also lived in Tennessee, Indiana, and Florida. For fun, John loves to work with his hands, whether it’s building a deck or renovating a bathroom; he’s always up for learning new things! Additionally, he loves to hike, rock climb, and work with bees when given the opportunity.
Originally from Elyria, Ohio, John has been married to his life mate Cheryl, a Brooklyn, New York girl since 1992. Both are U.S. Airforce veterans who met while serving in Italy. They have two grown children, Quentin and Rose.
John has taught a variety of courses at ACC and he has also taught computer technology classes at Anne Arundel Community College.
