Welcome / About Us
Hi, my name is Pastor Kevin. I am the Senior Pastor of Journey of Faith. My beautiful wife and I have been married for over 20 years and we have been blessed with two boys that are full of energy every day -- without fail. My family is actively involved in most all ministries at the church.
I grew up locally in West Covina where my parents raised me in a loving home. Both of my parents were here and walked along side me when Journey of Faith began. Both of them went to be with the Lord in 2012 and now look upon me and my family from heaven.
My mom has always been my biggest inspiration. She was a Proverbs 31 woman. She loved the Lord with all her heart and always sought the kingdom of God first in all she did. I know her greatest joy was watching Journey of Faith be birthed and being a part of its building.
Let me tell you my story.
I was in corporate America for over 20 years. I received my undergraduate degree in business locally at California State Polytechnic University Pomona. I received my graduate degree from the University of Southern California (Go Trojans!). I worked in managed healthcare and successfully climbed the corporate ladder. My goal and love was my career and going higher in the corporate world. After living in the business world for years, I had a radical encounter with the Lord, where I finally saw that my idol was the world and not the Lord. I had always known the Lord, had been in church every Sunday since I was a child; but I never had a true and meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. While on my knees one morning, I finally committed my entire life to the Lord. I have never been the same since.
In 2007, the Lord called me into ministry full-time. My wife also received the same call. At that time, I was still in the business world and had a successful healthcare consulting business. We both knew leaving the business field would mean significant monetary changes to our lives and a significant time commitment to build a church from scratch. We were obedient to the call and immediately started working according to the Lords plans. From 2007-2009, I began my ministry studies, training and mentorship program. Our first church service was held as an evening Bible study at the Glendora Learning Center on January 31, 2010. On October 3, 2010, we held our first morning service!
Many have asked where the name Journey of Faith came from. “Faith” was the name of our baby daughter we were trying to adopt in 2009. We had the privilege to love our daughter for three months until she was returned to her birth mother. We knew Faith was supposed to be there with us as a family as we stepped into ministry. In honor of our daughter, her name was made part of the church. She is now prayed for daily and will forever be in all of our hearts. “Journey” is defined as traveling from one place to another for a distance. We saw that as our walk with the Lord. We continue on our paths in life, not knowing where we are headed, but knowing we walk in Faith with the Lord, and knowing we will go the distance for Him. Hence -- Journey of Faith was born. We are fortunate to have our founding members of the church still walking with us today.
Each year, Journey of Faith is blessed with God’s provision. My daily prayer is that this church will be built according to the Lord’s vision and plans and not our own. I pray that the Holy Spirit will give to me and to His Church more and more of His presence and leading. I pray that when people walk into Journey of Faith, they will see and feel Christ in a real and meaningful way.
I hope you come join us on this amazing Journey of Faith!
