ASSISTANT PASTOR & YOUTH DIRECTOR - MANNY GALVAN

Manny and his wife Kristen grew up with a deep love for the Lord and have a strong desire to see students and families share that same love. Manny grew up in Vacaville, graduated from William Jessup University, and has been serving in full time ministry for over 10 years. During that time, he met his beautiful wife Kristen at Big Spoon Yogurt. They began serving in youth ministry together and raising their three energetic boys: Elijah (6) Parker (4) and Joel (3). Kristen grew up in Citrus Heights, graduated from UC Riverside (while playing Division 1 soccer) and is now serving churches as an account manager at Church and Casualty Insurance. For fun, the Galvan’s enjoy fishing, rugby, camping, board games, playing outside with all of their pets, and having people over for a good meal. Their life verse is captured in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 as they desire to not only share the gospel with their neighbors and their church, but they hope to share their lives as well!
