Stephen B. Hill
Ministry, for him, began at the young age of 17, at which time, he began preaching and soon after attended Texas Bible College and spent several years traveling around the country evangelizing with his family.
He and his wife, Susan Hill, married in August of 1985 and have two beautiful daughters together. Pastor loves spending time with family, cruise vacations and golfing.
Pastor Hill is thankful for God’s mercies in his life that allowed him the privilege of serving in ministry and the miraculous healing of his back from injuries sustained in a fall in 1999. He was unable to function without the use of narcotic medication while looking at a potential disc replacement in both his back and neck. In a single moment, God healed him of all pain and symptoms associated. He has lived pain free since 2004!
In 2001, He first got involved in ministry through music, playing instruments and leading worship and has since spent several years teaching and preaching locally as well as serving 8 years with his wife as the Youth Pastors until 2016.
He and his wife, Misti Wiley, have been married since 2007 and have 2 beautiful children together.
Adam’s favorite thing to do is go on family trips to any and every place they can think of, whether it’s camping in the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains or exploring the beautiful California coastline, he just loves making memories to share forever.
He is most grateful to God for helping him at a time in his life when he lacked a feeling of purpose for his life. God began to reveal purpose in everything that Adam did to the point of feeling compelled to give his and his families life in service to God and others. God has since opened many doors of opportunity and they feel blessed every day!
John has been ministering in many capacities over the last 16 years and serves now as a lay minister at Pentecostal Tabernacle where he is relied on regularly for weekly church operations.
He and his wife, Loretta Willman, have been married since 2002 and have 3 children together, 1 boy and 2 girls. John enjoys spending time at the local park with his family.
He recognizes God’s hand in all things in his life and is eager to serve when called upon.
Kent Smith Jr.
Since 2006, Kent has been serving in youth leadership, as well as Sunday School teacher, musician and preacher. He and his wife found their way to Pentecostal Tabernacle in 2015 from Louisiana.
Kent and his wife, Alexis Smith, married in 2014 and have twin boys that were born in 2016 and have dad and mom on their toes. They love taking the boys to the park, museum, and activity centers to watch them grow and develop quickly.
Kent thanks God for giving him favor and blessing him with a fantastic wife, amazing twins, and a career he enjoys.
Santino & Katrina Simental
Youth Pastors since 2016, These two have been ministering for 10 years doing everything from Sunday School to Bible Quizzing and youth ministry.
They have been married since 2013 and have two young boys, Silas and Asher. Their favorite thing to do together is to take advantage of their Annual Season Passes to Disneyland and make lasting memories together as a family.
Santino and Katrina continually give God all the credit in their lives for always opening doors in their finances and career opportunities that they didn’t even know were available.
Neal & Ana Jackson
children's ministry Directors
For the last 21 years Neal and Ana have served in ministry in all areas that were available to them. Now they are the department leaders for our Sunday School program where they serve as teachers as well. Neal ministers in the pulpit as well with regularity.
Neal and Ana married in 2001 and have 3 children together. Family events, for them, are a high priority. They love making memories doing outdoor adventures and taking road trips and cruises.
Both Neal and Ana have experienced many significant personal miracles in their lifetime that can only be attributed to God. At the beginning of their marriage God completely healed Ana of Brain Cancer. Shortly thereafter their first child was born premature at only 2 lbs. Today Ana is completely cancer free and their first born is now a perfectly healthy teenager involved in the youth group at Pentecostal Tabernacle. Praise God!
She has been ministering in many different capacities for 30+ years and is now the Leader of our music team.
April and her husband Nathan Davies have been married for a total of 26 years (See the testimony below) and have 2 daughters who are now married and have families of their own.
She is a Sign Language Interpreter by trade and very intrigued by the language and rich culture of her profession. Her true hobby is her grandsons! Any opportunity she has to spend with them she takes!
Her testimony is a great one. Early in her marriage, she and Nathan divorced and were apart for 5 years until they got God involved and HE brought them back together. They soon remarried and live the testimony each and every day of a restored marriage and family. No one could have accomplished that but God!
