Who is Serving

Each member of the church is gifted by the Holy Spirit and so serves in some capacity. Our pastors are men we have recognized as teachers gifted by God to teach and proclaim the Scriptures. Our pastors lead others to Christ through the encouragement of the Scriptures.


Is a sinner saved by grace! Charlie grew up in Arizona, Oregon, and California moving from location to location until finally landing in the Bay Area, where he has lived all his adult life. At age 31, after much running and rebellion, the Holy Spirit breathed new life into Charlie and he became devoted to the living Christ.

Following salvation, Charlie received his undergraduate training from The Master’s University studying Organizational Management. Also, he completed his seminary education at The Cornerstone Seminary in Vallejo, California gaining an M.Div.

He is convinced that God’s power unto salvation is exerted through the proclamation of the gospel of the glory of Jesus Christ. He preaches and teaches according to this belief.

Alongside pastoring, Charlie teaches at a local Christian high school and has taught at The Cornerstone Bible College and Seminary. He has also written a book, Gospel Powered: Anticipating the Power of God in Christ-Centered Apologetics.

He does all of this with the help and support of his wife Anna, one adult daughter, and four children. 


Mike was born and raised in Berkeley, California, more or less growing up in the church, with earliest memories dating back to a kindergarten Sunday school class. However, he did not enter the Kingdom of God until freshman year in college after the Holy Sprit wrought a godly sorrow over sin, producing repentance unto salvation. Later Mike earned a BA from San Jose State University, and some years later an M.Div. from Golden Gate Baptist Theolgical Seminary.

He and his wife, Suzanne have been married for 25 years and have two young adult children.

He is a staunch believer that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, the Life, the One Mediator between God and man, in Whom all the fullness of deity dwells bodily, and that the Scriptures, which were written about Him, are able to make one wise unto salvation.
