Rev. Mike Kenyon

Executive Associate Pastor for Evangelism, Discipleship & Multiplication

Mike has a passion to help disciples of Jesus integrate the truth of God’s Word into their everyday lives.   He enjoys equipping people of all ages and cultural backgrounds, to experience a vibrant relationship with Jesus (grounded in prayer) and to help individuals share the good news of the gospel in whatever setting God calls them. Having grown up in poverty, Mike has a heart to empower people to understand the spiritual and physical needs of the poor; and thereby respond in Christian love and service.  Mike received his MDiv at Rockbridge Theological Seminary (having completed much of his course work at Fuller Theological Seminary).  He enjoys playing basketball, tennis, singing in choral groups and filmmaking.  Mike and his wife Allison have two children; Austin and Kylie.

Rev. Dr. Steven B. Miller

Associate Pastor of Care Ministries

Steve grew up in Palos Verdes in a church-going family. After coming to Christ in high school, Steve said yes to the Lord’s leading which took him to ministry in the Sierra mountains, New Jersey and the USSR. Steve graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a B.S.; Princeton Seminary with an M.Div.; and Fuller Seminary with his D. Min. Steve is happily married to Mende and is excited about his two wonderful kids, Joshua and Hannah Rae, as they spring board from college at Whitworth. When not at church you can find Steve working in the garden, hiking in the hills, making something with wood, or watching soccer.
