Senior Pastor, Aaron Crawford
Pastor Aaron came to us in March of 2018 from a multi-site church near Los Angeles. He has been married to his wonderful wife, Missy, for 12 years and they have two little boys. Aaron has a BA in Philosophy from UCLA and a Master of Divinity from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. He loves to read, but hates how long it takes.
Youth Director, Robert Wright
Robert came to us from the other side of the city, and he still drives all the way across town to get here! He and his wife Trish have three amazing daughters. He is also one of the cross country coaches for Hope Christian School. Robert is passionate about missions and helping young people own their faith.
Worship Leader, Joy Hocker
Joy, Cameron, and their daughter Lily Hocker joined Monterey in 2019. She is a third-generation worship leader, and has been immersed in worship ministries her whole life. Joy is proficient in several instruments and she's never done learning (right now, she's working on the flute). Her favorite passage of Scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, which tells us to "rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances."
