Jill Brennan

Head of Academy

Dear Stonecreek Academy students, parents, staff and community members,
I am so blessed to reach out to you as the Head of Stonecreek Academy. I have been a part of the education community for over 25 years, beginning my career as a teacher and transitioning into the role of administrator at the school site and public school district level. My experience ranges from teaching students from preschool to grade 8 and administering programs for children from birth to grade 8 as an Assistant Principal, Principal and District Coordinator.

I have lived in Orange County my entire life and have lived within the Saddleback Valley for almost 25 years. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from California State University, Fullerton, in Political Science, my Master’s Degree from National University in Special Education and hold a teaching and administrative credential, also from CSUF.
I believe in teaching the whole child- mind, soul and heart. A Biblical foundation in education is vital to helping a child grow into a servant of God. At Stonecreek Academy, our motto is “Engaging the heart, Transforming the soul and Educating the mind.”

I welcome you to stop by to introduce yourself as my door is always open.
Grace and Peace,
Jill Brennan

 John Beeman

Senior Pastor

John has been our Senior Pastor since 2012. He and Melissa have been married for 27 years and they have two sons, Cayman & Grayson. The Beemans have lived in the RSM/Mission Viejo area for the past 20 years. John served as the Family Life Minister at a church in La Mesa, CA. He has also served as a Senior Pastor for two other churches. Most recently he was the founding pastor of Cornerstone Christian Church in Mission Viejo, CA as well as  the Senior Pastor at Stonecreek, John’s primary role is to provide transformational Scripture-based teaching every Sunday. He grew up in Mexico as a child of missionary parents. John graduated from Abilene Christian University with a B.A. and holds a Masters degree in marriage and family therapy. He has been in ministry for 27 years and has a passion to help teens own and live out their faith. John also serves as the chaplain for Saddleback Valley Christian schools in San Juan Capistrano. Although ministry keeps John pretty busy, he still finds time to weave some of his favorite past-times into the fabric of everyday life. John loves people and he enjoys good food. So, if you know of a great little place or want to grab a bite, give him a call — or better yet, meet him there!
