Pastors & Staff

Rev. Esteban & Lorena Talavera

Lead Pastor

Our heart has always been to serve others. I (Esteban) grew up in the Spanish Assemblies of God and over the years have seen God move in great ways. I began to feel God's calling on my life at the age of 15 when I became our church's youth leader. As the years went by, I went to college, where I met my wife (Lorena) and received a BA in Natural Sciences. I later went on to receive my Masters in Ministry from Northwest University. I currently work at Gavilan College as the interim director for both MESA & TRIO. We are both eager to help out in anyway possible to move our young people into higher education while at the same time following God's calling on their lives and connecting, loving and growing in our relationship with God and our community.
