Meet our Ministry Team!

    Charles has been married to his wonderful wife Jen for 30+ years, and they have two adult daughters Heather and Hanna - but enough about their kids, let's talk about their two Labradoodles, Sheriff and Jax! Charles comes to us after previously serving on the staff of San Luis Obispo Church of the Nazarene. His approach to ministry is rooted in God's word with the goal to disciple, equip, and help people lead lives that glorify God. He and Jen specialize in children, teens, young adults, singles, couples, and whatever else is left! 


  • Nanci Lovelace >> associate pastor

    Nanci has been active in the Paso Robles community and involved in various local ministries since 2002.  She recently finished seminary at Fuller and loves to share her learning.  Her role is to lead our Wednesday adult Bible study, periodically preach on Sundays, and offers Christian counseling alongside Pastor Charles.  Nanci hopes to inspire others to grow in their faith and relationship with Jesus, while enlightening younger generations about the importance of 80's sitcoms.  Nanci and her husband Joe have 2 daughters, Madeline & Ava.

  • Paul osborne >> worship leader

    Paul leads worship with a sincerity and humbleness that points the songs we sing clearly to Jesus.  Being a choral director by profession, his knowledge of music composition flows through his arrangements with contemporary songs as well as hymns.  Paul invests countless hours into preparing our praise team to lead worship every Sunday.  He and his wife Katrina have an adorable 5-year old daughter named Emmy.


  • Kelly christopherson >> youth LEADER

    Kelly is a Psychology student working towards her licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy. Before becoming Youth Director, she served as Youth Sponsor under previous pastor Brent Wylie. Her first order of business was taking 18 teens to Summer Camp, and living to tell the tale. She is excited about the future of the youth ministry, and plans to receive her local pastor's license soon, followed by her district license. In addition to her role as youth director, she can be seen on Sunday mornings playing bass guitar on the worship team.


  • Breanne ventura >> children's LEADER

She is a Special Education para-educator with the Paso Robles School District, as well as a Family Childcare Provider. Prior to taking on the position as Children’s Director, she played a key role in creating activities and working with the kids under Denise Wylie. Breanne’s vision for our Children’s Department is to draw kids closer to Jesus through interactive lessons and exciting activities such as Kids Camp, VBS, and monthly field trips. 


  • Trina Clays >> Office Manager

    Trina holds down everything in the office and keeps everyone in line.  She is available Wednesday through Friday to answer calls or e-mails in the church office.  Call her for any questions, or stop by the office to say hi... just don't touch her candy.
