Adult Ministries Pastor


Dixon joined the Pastoral team in January 2010. He has a passion to see people embrace Jesus and find joy and fulfillment in living for Him. Previously, he served as an associate pastor overseeing outreach, discipleship, and equipping. He is excited about getting people connected and growing as disciples here at New Life Community Church.

Before being called into pastoral ministry, Dixon received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from U.C. Santa Barbara and worked as a consulting engineer for 15 years. God lead him to pastoral ministry in 1997 and Dixon obtained his Masters of Divinity from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in 2000.

Dixon has been married since 1998 to Edon, whom he met in church through ministry and a small group bible study. Edon is currently active in children’s ministry now that she is retired from her career in finance and law.

Dixon enjoys short-term mission trips, golf, giving, cycling, Bible studies, and even occasional beekeeping. Outside of the church, you might run into Dixon in a local coffee shop, gym, or running on the beach.

His favorite verse is Hebrews 10:24,25: “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
