hOUR CHURCH was founded in 2012 by Pastor Steve Verret and his wife Jewel Verret.  They have resided in the Carlsbad area, along with their two daughters, for the past several years.  Prior to starting the hOUR CHURCH ministry, Pastor Steve served as a Bible- teaching volunteer at Daybreak Church in Carlsbad and Church of the Hills in San Elijo. He has served in numerous branches of ministry during his career, from Jr. High Minister to Drama Director and Worship Host.  Steve studied at Northern California Bible College, and is the creator and teacher of the “Bible Class for Dummies” program which has inspired many people to begin or renew a relationship with God’s word. Steve’s book on prayer called, “You Can Talk To God!” is available on Amazon.

These experiences and his love of teaching, along with the support of his wife, family and community, led Steve to create the hOUR CHURCH. Our church community is a gathering of friendly people who meet to study God’s word in an hourly “Weekly appointment with God”!  Our weekly format is what is unique about us.
