Jorge Mendoza, Lead Pastor
Jorge is a son of immigrant parents, was raised in a blended family and socialized in the hip-hop sub-culture. These experiences have given him a heart and an eye toward the outsiders in our world and he now lives and longs to tell all about the God who welcomes the outsiders to His family through the Gospel.
Jorge is a graduate of The Cornerstone Seminary in Vallejo CA, (2012) and is currently pursuing a Research Master’s Degree in Ethics, Culture and Theology at Southeastern Seminary (Wake Forest, NC). From 2012 – 2013 he completed a year long program for church planters with the Rebuild Network (Atlanta, GA). He now assists the Rebuild Network in their efforts to train indigenous minority leaders to plant churches in the dense and diverse cities of our nation.
Jorge is married to Wendy and they have four lovely daughters.
