Leadership And Office 

The Team


“We do not have to believe that something is right, believe that a person has the right to choose it. God does not force us to serve Him. It is a free will choice that we make, so why, in the name of all that is holy and right, do we think that we can force other people to live according to our particular type of religion? We are commanded to love if we are servants of Christ ”.
- Linda Wells ~ Harr
Romans 12: 1,2

Michael Jordan 

Head Pastor 
--I was born and raised in here in Kerman. I love this community! At age 19 Jesus found me and transformed my life. I later felt a call to Ministry and specifically to serve the Spanish speaking community. After graduating from Fresno Pacific University in 1992, I spent almost two years in Mexico City as a short-term missionary. I returned to Kerman with a vision to plant a Spanish-speaking church. I married my wife Ivette and together we planted La Vina Covenant Church in 2003. have 3 wonderful daughters who are faithfully serving Jesus--Emily, Netania and Emma. I love to trout fish, kayak and enjoy an ocean sunset with my beautiful wife.

Sandra Mendoza

--I am a woman of faith who has embarked on a long life journey in Christ Jesus. I am currently serving God's kingdom at La Viña Covenant Church. The calling on my life is to equip and empower His people as lead coach of our Conexion groups. My first ministry is at home. The Lord has blessed me with an amazing husband, Adolfo Mendoza who also serves the Lord in many capacities at La Viña. Together we are raising 4 boys, Richard, Alex, Kristian and Angel. Not to mention 2 daughters Eilene and Nayelli. I enjoy gardening. I love being able to witness nature as it doesn't have to impress anyone. The seasons determine the fruit it will bear in due time. The beauty and complexity of nature is astonishing.
--Let all that you do be done in love.
Psalm 139


--Blessings !! I am blessed, I am an admirable creation, I have also been given the privilege of being a daughter of God !! I have served my God on the leadership team for 4 years. My hobby is reading and watching sermons. My calling is to teach the word of God. I thank God for that peace that only he can give.
--Seek God at all times !! "In this way you will experience the peace of God, which surpasses all we can understand. The peace of God will guard your heart and mind as you live in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4: 7.

Chelsea Weber

Youth Pastor
--Born and raised in Kerman, I love serving the youth and children of my hometown. God has given me a heart for journeying with young people as they discover the God who created, loves, and calls them. I am passionate about intercultural connection and believe I have been called to be a bridge-builder for the Kingdom of God. I just love Jesus and am grateful for the opportunity to serve Him with my life.
--C.S. Lewis once said, "The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become." I can confirm that with my whole heart. The surrender is scary, but what is gained is life with purpose and life abundant!
