Board of Trustees

Pastor Jess Arnds – Interim President

I was born in California, grew up in Montana, graduated from The Master's College (2006) and Seminary (2015). I spent 7 years as a Resident Director at my alma mater, 4 years in Georgia as an Associate Pastor of Biblical Counseling, Administration, and Discipleship and now I am the Associate Pastor of Life Groups and College Ministry at Grace Napa. In 2006 I married my high school sweetheart, Melissa, and we have 3 wonderful children.


Eric Dahlberg – Trustee

My wife, Michele and I have been married for over 25 years and we have three children; Frances, Philip, and Mitchell. I am the owner of Winesecrets, a company that provides outsourced wine and beverage production services, which I founded in 2002. Our family has been members of First Christian Church since 2006, and I was appointed to the FCC Elder Board in 2017, where I serve as treasurer. I have also served on the Charter Council of the Napa Valley Language Academy. I am thankful that I am able to share my life experience by serving on the Veritas Christian Academy Board of Trustees.
