My wife Sharleen and I have been involved in outreach ministry for over 10 years, working with churches, non profits and local businesses. During that time we have been a part of serving over 15,000 meals in the Antelope Valley. In addition to that we have had the incredible opportunity to see lives changed, people getting off the street with jobs and homes, families and relationships restored, freed from the addiction of drugs and alcohol.

Vice President David Gaona

Nancy and I have been married for 10 years. In 2015 we meet Jeff and Sharleen and began helping serve at the park outreach. Since then we had also been involved in serving meals at our local shelter. This is something near and dear to our hearts to be able to be on the giving side of life, where we once were on the receiving end.

 I've lived in the Antelope Valley for 45 years and have given back to the community for the last 20 years. I've grown up in church and know that God has given me heart of giving and staying active in the community. I can't wait to see how God uses this ministry to serve.
