We’re glad you’re here!



We would like to Welcome Rev. Jesse Mabanglo to our FPC family.

Bio – Rev. Dr. Jesse G. Mabanglo

Jesse grew up mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area but considers the Northwest his home base. He grew up with seven brothers which shaped his personality and his humor. He received his BA from Chico State University, his M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and his D.Min. from Fuller Theological Seminary. And if that was not enough, he found time to do a year of graduate work at Princeton Theological Seminary. He has served churches in California, Oregon, Washington, and Virginia. He has recently served as Transitional Pastor at Skyline Presbyterian Church in Tacoma WA.

Jesse’s pastoral ministry is centered in a desire to bring together the vivacity of the mind, heart, and soul with the love of God. He is energized by talking to people who are asking who Jesus is and is fulfilled by building and experiencing community. In his own words, “it spins his prop” when he is able to encourage intentional leadership and collaborative ministry. Jesse has two great adult kids, Eddie (27) and Jessica (25). Eddie is a student at Arizona State University in Tempe AZ and Jessica is living and working in Boston MA with her husband Nate. When not engaged in the deep, satisfying work of ministry, you can find Jesse fly fishing in some unnamed stream chasing wily trout, or working wood for his next project, or at a local coffee shop absorbed in conversation, or just hanging out with Team Mabanglo.
