Joe Garcia
Youth Pastor

Joe was called to the Valley in June of 2014 as the full time pastor of youth. He says, “Looking back, there is no doubt that God was in that decision. It is a gift of joy to serve here.”

In March of 2015, Joe married the love of his life, Emily, who is his number one ministry partner and supporter. His heart for the youth ministry, C3Underground, and their families, is that they would encounter Jesus personally, connect deeply with God’s people, and live transformed lives of holiness and mission! Believe, Belong, Be different!

Joe was led to Jesus in 1995, at the age of 5. He received his B.A. from Biola University and his M.A. in Biblical Studies from Talbot School of Theology. Joe says, “God has kept me throughout it all” and is stunned by his consistent faithfulness and love!”

Joe is excited about the future of the youth ministry, and is passionate about all the progress this church is making, guided by God’s unstoppable Word.

Currently the verse close to his heart is Jude 1:24-25; it reminds him that God will complete his work in us and that He deserves the glory. “ Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.”
