Succession Planning

On May 5, 2024, our Lead Pastor, Michael Hidalgo, announced that over the past few years he has been prayerfully discerning what God has next for him. He has reached a decision to move on from his role at the end of May 2025.

If you have not heard Michael share about his decision, we encourage you to watch or listen to the announcement from our Podbean account. 

Our church community is now undertaking a leadership succession process. Here’s how you can learn more and participate:
