Ron & Jeanie Garcia

Children & Youth Pastors

Ron was born in Guatemala City.  At age 11, him and his family moved to the California.  Here in California is where his mother and him started attending a small church where Ron accepted Jesus into his heart as his Lord and Savior.  Ron is an Angelus Bible Institute Graduate and he has recently received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Studies in Information Technology

Jeanie was born in Monterrey, Mexico.  She was born in a Christian home, where her parents have been in ministry for many years.  At the age of 9, her and her family moved to California.  When she was about 12 years old, she received a word from the Lord calling her into ministry; not knowing when exactly, she believed it in her heart and trusted in the Lord’s timing.  Jeanie is part of the 4th generation of Ministers and Pastors in her family.

Little did Ron and Jeanie know that God had a plan for them to come together and form a family. 

Ron and Jeanie met at a Cedar Crest Youth Camp on October 1997 and married in October 2000. The Lord called them into Youth Ministry in December of that same year and then in 2004 they joined the New Horizon Ministry Team where they continue to serve in the Youth Ministry in both English and Spanish Congregations.  They now have two beautiful girls; Isabel and Abigail.  “We serve the Lord and our church as a family” -The Garcia Family

Our Youth Ministry is here to serve, guide and teach young lives to remain in Christ and rely on the Holy Spirit to become one with Him; to be Christ Followers.   We are “Fusion” Youth Ministry.  John 15:4 says “Remain in me, and I will remain in you“.  To remain in Jesus is to have a daily relationship with Him and letting His life flow in ours. We are to fuse our lives to Jesus’ life. 

Join us each Friday night at 7:30 in the Youth Chapel (Room #6)

Tim & Juliet Gillis

Worship Pastors

Tim & Juliet met at New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 24, 2000 while Tim was on vacation visiting his parents who were on staff there. It was love at first sight and after 2 ½ years of long distance dating, they got married on June 21, 2003 at Media City Church in Burbank, CA. Tim’s dad officiated the wedding.  They have been leading worship together ever since, beginning at Calvary Church of the Pacific in Aiea, HI, and currently here at New Horizon Church.

Worshipping God through music and song is in Tim’s blood. Whenever you are around him, it is never quiet. He is either singing or humming or making you laugh. Juliet has always loved music as her dad was a musician in the Philippines and in Hawaii. But it wasn’t until she met Tim that she discovered the most beautiful kind of music….worship.

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing.”  Psalm 100:1-2

“Nuestra misión es ser de bendición para la ciudad en que estamos y las que nos rodean, ser de buena influencia para esta generación y la venidera.  Tenemos un ideal y propósito definidos y esto se confirma en Isaías 44:3 “Dios dice: porque voy hacer que corra agua en el desierto, arroyos en tierra seca. Yo daré nueva vida a tus descendientes, les enviare bendición. Amén.”
Estamos firmes en el compromiso y tenemos una fe constante para lograr la realización del propósito que Dios tiene para tu vida y tu familia.” – Pastores Javier y Julia

“Our mission is to be a blessing for the city in which we are and those around us, to be of good influence for this generation and the future.  We have a defined ideal and purpose and this is confirmed in Isaiah 44:3 “God says, because I will make water run in the wilderness, streams on dry land. I will give new life to your descendants, send them blessing. Amen.”– Pastors Javier and Julia
