Eastown Church

Executive Pastor

San Ramon,


Why I Love This Opportunity

Ernest Smith


I love this opportunity for many reasons. First, this is a young, growing, thriving church. Second, the community in the Bay area is one that should excite many people who are looking for a great place to live, raise a family and reach a highly unchurched region of the country. Lastly, this person has the opportunity to use their gifts and experience to make an immediate impact on the systems and processes of a growing church.

About This Organization

Clint and Michaell Dupin moved to San Ramon in 2017 to start Eastown Church with a prayer to create a church that the East Bay community needed, not a church they were used to leading. A launch team was started with the Dupin family and the one other family they knew and then grew to 45-50 people made up of neighbors, unchurched, de-churched, and a few others from local churches. This team spent the first year listening, learning, and partnering with events already happening in the community. This was where the Love Local Initiative was birthed, and the mission was to inspire and equip anyone to love like Jesus where they live, work, and play. Eastown believes that our greatest impact happens right where we live. Then, one year later, Eastown kicked off Sunday services in January 2018. As we live out our mission together, we will see love, healing, and justice spread throughout our neighborhoods and cities by God’s grace. While our local context is the East Bay (the #1 un-churched and de-churched area in our nation), part of our church body is now in other places because of our online service option. We invite anyone to “love local” in the specific communities God has intentionally placed them.
