Pastor Kevin was born in New York City, but at the age of three he and his family moved to San Diego, CA where he grew up. His parents are both from Guatemala where they emigrated to the US about forty-five years ago and lived in New York.
He grew up in San Diego County (Spring Valley to be exact) until the age of eighteen and graduated from Monte Vista High School. So, of course it goes without saying that he is a San Diego Chargers and Padres fan; his favorite pro basketball team is the LA Lakers.
He went to college in Los Angeles at the University of Southern California and met his wife Andria when they were both involved in Campus Crusade for Christ. They both graduated from U.S.C. and married in 1998. So, naturally they are a Trojan family and love to go to U.S.C. football games - Fight On!
They have four wonderful children: their oldest son is Joshua, followed by twin boys, James and Jacob, and their youngest is their daughter Jasmin. They also have one dog named Mijo whom they love very much!
Kevin completed a Certificate in Urban Youth Ministry from Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA and is working on completing his Master of Divinity. He was a public school teacher for nine years in the Rialto Unified School District where he taught English/ESL and Social Studies. He was a youth pastor for fifteen years in the cities of Rialto, and Rancho Cucamonga, at three different churches in the Inland Empire of Southern California. Kevin has traveled to Baja California, and Mexico City, as well as Madrid, Spain and Almaty, Kazakhstan on Missionary/Ministry Trips. His favorite foods are Mexican, Italian, Chinese and he loves Sushi.
Kevin loves to read the Bible and books on ministry, watch good movies, travel and learn about new cultures and people. His passion is to reach, serve and equip people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to help them grow closer to Jesus. He enjoys traveling, camping, hiking, barbecuing and throwing the football around in the backyard with his sons.
