Our Pastoral Team


  • Pastors Arnold & Monica Cerezo

    Lead Pastors

They have been married for over 28 years and during this time God has blessed them with five sons, one daughter, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter. As a family they love doing almost anything together – hiking, exploring, cooking, reading, traveling, watching movies, playing games, or playing with their dog, Titan, or kitten, Flash.

     

    Pastor Arnold is licensed and ordained through the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Bible/Christian Life and Family Ministry and a Masters of Arts degree in Psychology specializing in organizational leadership.

    July 2017 proved to be another new adventure for them and their four youngest boys as they answered the Lord’s call to serve as pastors in Worcester, Massachusetts. They couldn’t be more excited to serve New England with God’s unfailing love in a relational way. They have a passion to love God in front of people and love people in front of God by intentionally inviting people into their lives. They can't wait to get to know you!
