Lead Pastor – Sunrise Community Church
I have served as the planter and senior leader of a bilingual, multicultural congregation in Central California for over 20 years. During that time, I’ve had the privilege of coaching church planters and ministry leaders in a number of settings, both in English and Spanish. I have also been involved in training coaches in the Reformed Church in America since 2013.
