Our Pastors & Staff

Senior Pastor

Evan and his wife Linda started ministering at Pomerado Christian Church the same year the first Star Wars movie came out! He enjoys preaching with puns and props and encouraging people in every way possible. (Beware of alliterations.)  And every once in awhile he gets to play his bass guitar for worship.

Children's Ministries Director

I started learning about Jesus when I was just baby, so it was very natural and real for me to decide to follow Him when I was still a child.  God has used my whole life preparing me to minister to children.  And it was when I had children of my own that I began to really understand what it meant to live as a “child of God”.  I was a volunteer in Children’s Ministry at Pomerado for several years before joining the staff in 2002. He has given me a passion to help children know what it really means to follow Him.

Children's Ministry Assistant and Nursery Coordinator

Hi! I'm Suzi. My family and I have called PCC "home" since 2004. We have 3 children - Jared, Luke and Rachel who all attend school in Poway. We were drawn to PCC because of their Children's Ministry and the friendliness of the congregation. I feel very blessed to now be a part of the PCC team.
