Pastor Raul Figueroa
Raul Figueroa and his wife Candace have been a part of our youth ministry since 1999 when Raul began as a volunteer. Raul and Candace have been married since 1994 and are the parents of 4 beautiful children.
In 2004, Raul took about a 1 year break from the youth ministry only to return 1 year later with a new found sense of calling and purpose. Raul took the plunge in 2005 and began serving full time as our Switched Youth leader.
Following a sabbatical in 2014, Pastor Raul felt it was time to hand the reins of youth ministry off to some fresh blood. So, with the blessing of the elders, and after over a year of coaching, in 2015 Pastor Raul brought on Noah Dexter to take over the youth ministry. (See more information about Noah below.) Since then, Pastor Raul has been busy pastoring families and caring for a variety of things within the church, including leading the church whenever Pastor Doug has to be away.
Raul is also a member of MINISTERS FELLOWSHIP INTERNATIONAL, a strong network of pastors and various other Christian workers who have linked together to reach the nations of the earth through strong and healthy local churches.

“Ministers Fellowship International exists to facilitate and nurture meaningful relationships among member ministers, equipping and enabling them to be more effective in their callings, for the purpose of building and multiplying strong local churches around the world.
MFI is not a denomination. It is a fellowship. For this reason, MFI does not credential ministers, hold church properties or maintain a central mission board. All of these are functions of the local church. MFI exists for the support of local church ministers and their churches.”
