Kourtney Avila | Family Pastor

Kourtney joined the New Life family in 2003 and immediately began serving in children’s classrooms. She joined the staff in September of 2008 as the Children’s Director. She now oversees all children, birth through high school, as the Family Pastor. Kourtney enjoys many things about New Life, but she loves the accepting, come-as-you-are vibe of the church the most.

Kourtney is married to her high school sweetheart Doug and mom to Lauryn, Derek, Joseph, and Peyton. When she is not serving at the church, she is watching her kids play sports, watching SF Giants games, and drinking a Starbucks Frappuccino. As a former English teacher, Kourtney enjoys words, quotes, books, and scripture. Her favorite verses are Romans 8:38-39.  Her favorite place to be is at the beach with her family.
