Jesse Malin

Pastor & Chaplain


Pastor “PJ” Jesse Malin serves as Rio’s pastor and chaplain. He teaches religion classes, leads worships, and serves both our students, staff, and community as pastor.

Coming from Lodi, Pastor Malin has ample experience in youth ministry both in the US and abroad. One of the things that inspires Pastor Malin as a youth pastor is witnessing the spiritual creativity and innovation of his youth and seeing them influence their families and communities for Christ. His greatest desire is to lead young people to a personal relationship with Jesus.

He and his wife, Hailey, and young son love to adventure and explore the great outdoors and enjoy nature together. On his off time, you can find Pastor Malin playing board games, Rook or volleyball.
