South Pasadena-San Marino Young Life



Hello! My name is Adam Sonneland and I am so excited to step into a staff position with Young Life South Pasadena-San Marino! I am from Spokane, Washington where I grew up and attended college. I recently moved to Pasadena with my wife, Addy, when she began studying at Fuller Seminary in September of 22'. In my free time, I love cycling (and most outdoor activities), spending time with friends and family, playing guitar, and board games.
During my four years of college, I led with Young Life Capernaum as I worked part time for my local Young Life area. I love the way that Young Life encourages caring adults to step into the lives of kids and help them see the freedom and flourishing that can be found in relationship with Jesus. I cannot wait to see the ways that the Lord is going to make this a reality for the adolescents in South Pasadena and San Marino, and I feel so blessed to be a part of this journey!
