Meet The Team

Our Youth Ministry exists to: WIN young people to Christ, CONNECT them to other Christians, TRAIN them in Christ-like living, SEND them to minister to others, and help them to grow in their ability to WORSHIP God.

Danny Eslinger

Hi my name is Danny and I'm 38 years old. I've been at Foothills for 24 years now and worked at Foothills for 18 years. I am the High School Pastor and love my work with a passion. I love my wife Nitsa, my four sons Jaedon, Silas, Judah, Corban, and daughter Shiloh. Things I like to do for fun are surfing and going on adventures with my family. I play a mean game of racquetball too. I have a deep passion for the youth of East County.

Jon Ulloa

Hi my name is Jon and I'm 29 years old. I've attended Foothills for 13 years and worked at Foothills for 10 years. I am the Youth Program Coordinator for the High School Ministry. I enjoy hiking, being outdoors, going out to breakfast, and going shooting. A couple of my favorite places are New York City and Denver, CO. I'm fairly certain I wasn't meant to live in San Diego, as I love rain and cold weather. Nonetheless, I love working with youth!

Shane Blafield

Hi my name is Shane and I am 23 years old. I've been going to foothills for over 9 years and have worked in the High School Ministry as the Youth Intern for 5 years. My passion is worship, evangelism, and mentoring. I love my wife Megan, and newly born daughter Peyton. You might see my on my motorcycle cruising El Cajon or hanging out with my homies on the street. I love youth!

Corey Haines

Hi my name is Corey and I am 21 years old. I have been going to Foothills for 7 years and working at Foothills for a year. I am one of the Youth Interns on the High School Ministry team. I love spending time with my girlfriend and any (all) animals, especially dogs. Exercising, playing basketball and volleyball, reading, exploring San Diego, and eating out are all things I will gladly spend my time on. One interesting fact is that I haven't been clean shaven for over a year and a half now! I love youth and want to see the next generation love and revere our God!

Allison Schutz

Hi my name is Allison. A woman never reveals her age, but I'm a little older than I look. I've attended Foothills for 27 years and worked at Foothills for 14 years. I am the Youth Administrative Assistant for the High School Ministry. I love my husband Deron and 3 step daughters Tiffany, Victoria, and Savanah. Travel, read, pretend I'm a chef, and hanging out with my husband are just some of my favorite things to do. I've traveled 7 countries and 16 states, but prefer San Diego!
