Lead Pastor - Velters Berkeley

I was born and raised in Calcutta, India (the city where Mother Teresa lived, worked and died).  I was saved under the ministry of missionaries Mark and Huldah Buntain at the early age of 10.  After coming to the USA, I attended and graduated from Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri and moved shortly after that to Sacramento, California.  I have been in ministry since I was 12 years old.  My whole life I have been consumed with a passion to see lives touched and changed for eternity!

Associate Pastor - Gary Crotwell

Both of us were born and raised in the Antioch, California area. where we went to school and attended church. At the age of 21 we entered into the ministry as youth workers.  We became pastors in Brentwood at the age of 26. Later we moved to Manteca, California where we were pastors for four years. In 1987, we moved to Elk Grove and planted a church in South Sacramento. I received a Bachelor of Theology Degree from Pacific Coast Bible College and later earned a Masters Degree from Southwestern University in Bethany OK. We have been involved with the Elk Grove Community since we moved here in 1987.
