Genesis Church: Damon and Shantell Owens (Antioch, CA)


Damon grew up in Oakland before studying at San Jose State University and Laney College. His wife, Shantell, is from Pittsburg, CA. Damon and Shantell were both in the Real Estate business before starting their church plant in Antioch in the fall of 2015. Genesis Church is in an under-resourced and economically depressed area of the city. They run a large food pantry to help the homeless, as well as those living paycheck to paycheck in their community. Damon says, “Consistency is more than an hour and fifteen minutes on a Sunday morning. Being visible in the community throughout the week lets people know we are here and we care.” Their church vision is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus, while serving and seeking to enrich the welfare of the city of Antioch and it’s neighboring communities. “Genesis Church is a community of believers that inspires people to know Jesus passionately while loving others unconditionally."
