Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee…
— Luke 24: 5-6


After retiring from Honeywell where he worked for over 30 years, Pastor John joined the pastoral staff at CCSFS as the Administrative Pastor. In this position, he oversees the business aspects of the church, leads a weekly prayer meeting, a men’s discipleship group in the School of Ministry, and oversees the Ushers/Greeters ministry.


Pastor John came to Christ around the age of 12 at a small church in Huntington Park, CA.  He fell away from the Lord until 2006 when, after the death of his mother, he rededicated his life to the Lord at the Harvest Crusade.

After deciding CCSFS would be his home church, Pastor John got involved in ministry by first serving as an Usher/Greeter.  For the last eight years, he has served as an assistant in the Men’s Ministry and he and his wife, Maria, have been an integral part of the Prayer Ministry.

He has completed a rigorous course of ministry studies through CCSFS, including SLAM, the School of Ministry and Church Planting.

Pastor John and Maria have been married since 1981 and have two daughters, Amber and Vanessa. Their son-in-law, Luis, currently serves in the Army. They love to spend time with their three grandkids Aiden, Elijah, and Ezekiel when they get a chance to visit.

In his spare time, Pastor John enjoys relaxing with Maria, running, and reading.
