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 Pastor, Bruce Gale
Bruce came to us in September of 2019 from the west side of Albuquerque. He and his wife Shannon have been married since 2002 and they have three sons. Bruce has a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Master of Science in Computer Science from Colorado Technical University. He loves to read, play board games, and spent time playing with his boys.
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. She loves learning new instruments and 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."
Secretary, Elizabeth Keller
When you call Monterey, you'll probably be talking to Liz. Calling her the Church Secretary doesn't do her justice. She's really the glue that holds things together Monday through Friday.
