SENIOR PASTOR - KEVIN WALKOWIAK
Pastor Kevin has been in full time ministry for 9 years, and while he loves being the teacher of God’s word as well as providing council to those who seek it, his true passion is in equipping each person to use their unique, God given talents. As disciples of Christ, who are committed to following Jesus, these talents will not only grow the Kingdom, they will deepen relationships with God and bestow a Christ given vitality to spread God’s word.
Moved by the “Great Commission” found in Matthew 28:18-20, and by the New Testament Church in Acts, Pastor Kevin believes that the most important role of the church is to be the hands and feet of Jesus, especially in the lives of those who don't know Him.
Pastor Kevin wants each person to experience for themselves the daily victory, peace, joy and love that comes from a moment by moment walk with Jesus so that all can live this life to the fullest. But above all, so that as many as possible will be ready for that incredible day when Jesus comes again to take His people home!
Pastor Kevin’s ministry could not be done without his wife of 14 years, MeLanie and their beautiful daughter, Charleigh. In his spare time he enjoys spending time laughing with his family, riding his motorcycle, singing, playing golf as well as tennis.
YOUTH PASTOR - ORLAND ROSALES
Pastor Orland has been in youth ministry since 2016.

Pastor Orland is passionate about mentoring young people through intentional and meaningful relationships, which create healthy bonds and connections in order to lead them to a more personal relationship with Christ.
Pastor Orland married his High School sweetheart Josenny, who has greatly supported him in ministry since 2014. In his spare time, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife, playing soccer, singing and playing the guitar.
