Tina Certeza

I am currently a Police Detective with an agency in Southern California and have been so for over twenty years.  It wasn’t until I had thirteen years on the job that I first came to know the Lord and what a difference it has made in my career and family life.

Bill Crutchfield

I grew up in Bakersfield, where my parents were the pastors of a small rural church. I gave my life to Christ at an early age, was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. When I was a teenager, we moved to Orange County where we continued to attend a Pentecostal Church.

Leon Phillips

My spiritual journey began before I was seven years old. My father and mother were married for several years before my sister was born. I came two years after that.


Marylou Avila

I grew up in a very loving family.  I grew up as a Catholic but only went to church on holidays.  I made my first holy communion but I did not have a relationship with Jesus Christ.  We never studied the bible and I never read it.

Skip Showalter

Around Easter of 1980, I gave my life to Jesus Christ but not much changed until two years later. I became a youth pastor intern and thought I was God’s gift to preaching. I found out the hard way that I had a lot of growing to do but He definitely called me to preach.

Danny Amador

I grew up in Los Angeles CA. My godparents invited me to a small church in Huntington Park and there I gave my life to the Lord on September 1st, 2001 at the age of seventeen. The next day I felt like a new person and my eyes felt like they were washed with fresh cold water.
