Deacon James Chang

Currently, I serve as the deacon overseeing administration which includes finance and media. I see my gifts in supporting the “behind the scenes” of our church so that we are good stewards of God’s resources as we serve those at Cross Life and those seeking God. I also oversee the development of our website, working with talented, faithful volunteers.  God has blessed me with a wonderful wife and 3 beautiful children.

Deacon Mike Chi

I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior during the summer of 1982. Since then, my life has revolved around Jesus in everything I do and know. Here at Cross Life, I have the privilege to serve as the Worship Ministry leader and I facilitate the Central Life Group. I’ve been married to my wonderful wife Judy going on 26 years and we have 3 amazing sons.

Deacon Michael Park

I am responsible for planning, coordinating, and communicating church-wide fellowship activities. I work to create opportunities for Christians to be with other believers to encourage, teach, serve, and change the lives of others together. I’ve been married to my wonderful wife Chi for 17 years and we have 2 wonderful daughters.

Deacon Heather Castro

My family immigrated to the US as Buddhists. I attended church, for social reasons, but came to know Jesus as my Savior in the 6th grade. As I grew older, my relationship with God evolved. There were times I turned away but He has never left my side. God has never failed me, and I try everyday not to fail Him, and even when I do, He forgives and loves me.

Deacon Joseph Lee

As a member of the Servant Leader Team, Pastor John and I care for our Small Groups. We develop and support our groups to provide a welcoming and open environment where our members can connect, grow, serve and invite others to act out our faith in our communities around us.  We hope to do this is by having biblically based studies, meaningful fellowship, and community service and outreach opportunities. Don’t miss out on God’s calling on you to connect deeper with Him and His people!
