Pastor Ted Hamilton

Ted Hamilton

Ted is a native Southern Californian. He did his undergraduate work at Stanford University. He also got his law degree at Stanford Law School. Between college and law school, Ted worked a couple of years in the aerospace industry. After law school, he moved back to SoCal and joined O'Melveny & Myers. He practiced there for 14 years, the last five as a Partner. Ted resigned from O’Melveny in 1997 and enrolled at Westminster Seminary California in Escondido. He graduated in 2000 and was called to be the Pastor of Adult Ministries at Voyagers Bible Church in Irvine. After a year in that role, Ted received the call from New Life to be its Senior Pastor in 2001. The love of Ted's life is his wife, Linda. They together take great joy in their family -- daughter, Sarah, and son, Jim -- who with their spouses have added beautiful grandchildren to the mix. Ted is happy to talk about them any time! Ted loves the outdoors and is passionate about fly fishing, backpacking and skiing.
