Bryan del Valle

LEAD Pastor

Bryan was born and raised in San Diego, California.  After losing his mother to cancer at the age of 14, he decided to give his life fully to Jesus and be baptized.  Sensing God’s leading to ministry, he earned a BA in Theology from Southwestern Adventist University and a Masters in Divinity from Andrews University in 2003.

In 2013, he married his lovely wife Rosie, who currently works as a part time nurse and a full time mom to their two children, Abby and Daniel.

Pastor Bryan loves leading people to a better understanding of Jesus through teaching and discipleship.  He also enjoys being outdoors backpacking, surfing, rock climbing and fishing.

Brandon Kharns

Associate youth Pastor

Pastor Brandon joined our team the summer of 2022 to work in our youth ministries. With a background in family life ministries and outdoor education he brings a unique perspective of ministry that focuses on experiential learning, personal discovery, the power of connection with each other and most importantly personal connection with Jesus.

Pastor Brandon's many interests generally center around a challenge, a bit of adventure, good people, lots of laughs, and most importantly... a good story. He enjoys connecting with people, experiencing new cultures and perspectives, and doing his best to make the world around him a better place. But more than anything else, he loves spending time with his family in their many shared interests and activities.
