Meet the Pastors
Pastor Rolo Bernales
Pastor Rolo Bernales grew up in a Christian, Filipino family. However, he realized he was a false convert when he heard the ‘Biblical’ Gospel and was born again by God’s grace in the Fall of 2000. He has been married to Cara since June 2004 and they have five children together. He received a BS from Grand Canyon University & his Masters of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He enjoys traveling with his family, local church fellowship, sharing & preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.
Pastor Dean Lavell
Pastor Dean Lavell did not come from a Christian family, but the Lord graciously saved him in 1984. He works as a Sr. Project Manager and has been married to Vicky since 1985. He has seven children and eleven grandchildren with two more on the way.
Pastor Ed Romero
Pastor Ed Romero grew up in a Christian home but says the gospel didn’t penetrate his heart until he was in high school or college. Since then, he has been passionate about teaching the word of God to others. He was blessed with marriage to Megan in 2017 and received his master's degree in Christian Ministry from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary a few months later.
