    John RenoWorship Pastor
    I came into the ministry in 1995, devastated from drugs and alcohol. God used Pastor Gerry and the U-Turn for Christ ministries to get my focus back on the Lord. Ever since, God has blessed me to have the privilege of being involved in the worship ministry. I love to worship the Lord at U-Turn for Christ and seeing the men and women transformed daily as they give their hearts to the Lordship of Jesus. In 2002, God blessed me with my beautiful wife Kirby and we currently serve in the ministry together. I count it a privilege to have served at U-Turn for Christ all these years. “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” Colossians 3:16
  • Jose Alvarado
    Jose AlvaradoPastor of Spanish Ministries
    My name is Jose Alvarado, pastor of Calvary Chapel Romoland Spanish Ministry. Fifteen years ago, I accepted the Lord through my wife, Nancy. I have been pasturing in the Spanish ministry for five years now and I love growing in the knowledge and wisdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Before knowing the Lord, I was in drugs and sin. I was searching for God, but didn’t know how to find him until I met my wife. It was through her love and God’s amazing grace that lead me to the feet of Jesus and I am forever grateful to Him! Now that I’ve been saved by grace, my desire is to go wherever He leads me and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ because it’s no longer I that live, but He that lives in me (Gal. 2:20). Some things I enjoying doing are, riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle with my wife and spend time with family. Between my wife and I, we have 9 children and 16 grandchildren. I also enjoy playing golf and spending time with my wife.
