Senior Pastor Cynthia Louie and her husband Russel have been faithful workers in our church since shortly after it's inception in 1990. Founding Pastor Loyd K. Watanabe, soon appointed Cynthia as Church Administrator and began training her for ministry. Her husband and two children, Jason and Marisa, have been serving in many capacities throughout. She was appointed Senior Pastor when Pastor Loyd K. Watanabe went home to be with the Lord on January 5, 2012.
Pastor and Evangelist
Pastor Carlos Rodriguez came to our church about the same time as Pastor Cynthia Louie and, leveraging his Bible memorization skills, soon became involved in Bible Study Groups. He met his wife, Myra (and her numerous sisters) at our church and now have two thriving sons. Recognizing his keen interest in studying the Bible, and his speaking and witnessing skills, Pastor Loyd Watanabe began training him for the ministry. He began leading small groups and Preaching on Wednesdays and finally Sunday mornings. Carlos was promoted to Pastor at the passing of founding Pastor Loyd K. Watanabe..
Pastor Rodney Iaea and his brother Chris, and sister Leanne came to our church very early in its history. Since all the Iaea siblings are talented singers and musicians, they formed the heart of our worship team for many years. Rodney met his wife Glenna (one of Myra's many sisters) at our church and now have one grown son and two daughters. Rodney and Glenna (and Glenna's sister Cherry) have been part of the core worship team for many years. Rodney was appointed Worship Leader when his brother Chris was called to pastor his own church years ago. He was appointed Pastor and Music Minister at the passing of founder Pastor Loyd K. Watanabe. Rodney was trained by Pastor Loyd K. Watanabe and holds a Masters Degree in Divinity.
