Jay& Janet NEU- Lead pastors

After 24 years of Pastoral ministry in Minnesota, change was at hand. During a time of fasting and prayer Jay sensed in his heart God was leading him back to California where he was raised. Jay, his wife Janet and a group of like precious faith people, founded Unique Life Ministry. We are a local church with a heart for the people of our community and the world. The purpose of ULM is founded upon what Jesus spoke in Luke 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord." (KJV)

Pastors Jay and Janet Neu are passionate about seeing God make people whole in every aspect of their lives, spirit, soul and body.


Joseph Thomas

Joseph Thomas brings the unique gifts of mentoring and discipleship to the Unique Life Ministry. After retiring from the Navy Joseph received a Masters Degree in Organization Leadership from Azusa Pacific University and began a passionate pursuit of God. He has served faithfully in two local churches where He was in Ministry of Helps leadership for over 8 years.

Joseph has a compassionate heart for the hurting and disfranchised people of this world. His powerful testimony of rejection to redemption is revealed in his deliverance by God from the painful memories of childhood trauma.

Anna has served as a leader in Children's ministry, Young Adult Leadership, small group Bible study, women's ministry, prayer line, altar call, hospitality and outreach.
