Meet The Team

Lily Garcia

Director of Children & Family Ministry
"Jesus is my everything!!!
I came to Jesus at a very early age
and love to see Him working through kids. This generation shall see signs and wonders as they expand His Kingdom."

Jill Foster

Director of Children’s Worship Team
"My desire is for children to find security in their faith through praise of their Abba Daddy Father, regardless of circumstances. Borrowing words from Pastor James Ford, Jr., praise turns "fear into faith, worry into worship, sighing into singing, doubting into dancing."

Rosy Rios 

Director of Childcare
"I' believe God will raise a new generation  of children that will  
worship God with gladness
and  live freely to please Him ."
