ERICK LOH - Lead English Pastor

I was born in Seattle, WA, but have lived in the Los Angeles area for most of my life. I graduated with an electrical engineering degree from UCLA, where I met my beautiful wife, Amy. After getting married in 2012, we moved to Kentucky to attend The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2015 and came back to be on staff with CCAC in 2016. Prior to vocational ministry, I worked for nine years in the IT industry and also served in college campus ministry for three years.

By the grace of God, I was saved in first grade through my parents sharing the gospel with me. I felt the call to ministry in college as I began to teach and disciple younger believers. I am passionate about teaching God’s Word and helping others to understand it, know God through it, and practice it in their own lives. I desire to build a community of Christians who are zealous for the glory of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ, and who love each other genuinely and deeply. I love my wife, studying the Scriptures, drinking good coffee, playing basketball, reading, and the Seattle Seahawks.

TAVI JINARIU - Associate Pastor of Worship and Discipleship

Tavi and his wife Melissa have been at CCAC since 2007. Tavi grew up in Romania and was surrounded by music ever since he can remember. At age 18 he came to the US on a classical guitar scholarship and graduated from the Master’s College in Santa Clarita, CA with a Bachelors degree in guitar performance. Tavi and Melissa met in Romania during the summer of 2000 while Tavi was visiting his family and Melissa was leading a mission trip to Tavi’s home church. Upon their return to California, Tavi offered to teach Melissa how to speak Romanian, began to put his Romanian charm to good usage, and the rest is history. Tavi and Melissa were married in 2003 and, together with their daughter Sophia and son Elijah, enjoy living their busy but exciting lives. Tavi received his Master of Divinity from the Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley CA in 2008 and is currently overseeing the Worship, Christian education, counseling, and spiritual formation ministries of our church.

ROGER JOE - Elder

Roger was born and raised in San Diego from Chinese immigrant parents. He became a Christian in high school after attending a church retreat at Forest Home and was baptized a year later. The influences of his youth pastor and youth group were instrumental in his early growth as a disciple of Christ. Only the Lord knew the range of subjects he would study as he left San Diego to attend UCLA to study Business, go on to USC to become a dentist, and then study in the MDiv program at the Master's Seminary. In the Lord's mercy, he introduced Stefanie into his life who later became his wife in 1991. Also born in San Diego, she traveled up the 5 freeway to attend Biola University and later worked as a LAUSD math teacher in Hancock Park. They have the privilege and joy of raising their four children: Karisa, Kaitlyn, Daniel and Kaylee. Being at CCAC since 1995, Roger has enjoyed his involvement in growth groups, counseling, youth group, leadership and church development, worship, Sunday School, and disability ministry. In his "spare time", he enjoys guitar, mountain biking, studying God's Word, traveling and getting good Groupon deals!
 

STANLEY YU - Elder

Stan is a self-proclaimed “Valley boy,” having been born and lived in San Fernando Valley his entire life, except when away for college and post-graduate training. He has been attending CCAC regularly since Jr. High, and enjoyed serving in the church in various capacities, from high school student leader, High school sponsor, Sunday school teacher, Deacon, to eldership now. Stan is married to his high school sweet heart, Mandy, and they have four children: Madelyne, Makenna, Nate, and Nicholas. In 2010, Stan and Mandy founded Monarch Christian School in Chatsworth, which serves families with children from 3 months old to 5th grade, and they continue to serve on the Board of Trustees.

JONATHAN KELBERElder

Jonathan and his wife, Julie, have been attending CCAC since 2012 - they have been married for 12 years and have three children: Miles, Luke and Vivian. Jonathan is a native to Southern California and grew up in a Judeo-Christian family/culture (his dad's family are Jewish and his mom's are Christian). He professed faith as a Christ-follower at the age of 23, during his undergraduate studies at Cal Poly Pomona. He and Julie met during their time teaching high school together. At CCAC, Jonathan serves on the worship team, assists in providing fellowship and discipleship opportunities to the men in our congregation and is the chairman of the missions committee. During graduate school, Jonathan and Julie attended a San Diego church that placed a primary emphasis on cross-cultural Christian missions to ethno-linguistically distinct people groups who don't have the Bible available in their native tongue or a viable/reproducing church. It was during their time there that Jonathan learned of the Biblical mandate to missions and that missions is not a calling, but a command to all disciples of Jesus Christ. Thus, he asks the question, "will you go or will you send?". His desire is for CCAC to grow as a missions sending church and he works to provide missions education opportunities to our congregation. His passion is to mobilize Christians to go to where the Gospel of Jesus has not yet been heard/read. Jonathan is a Professor of Biology at Cal State Northridge, where he teaches courses in cell and molecular biology and leads a team of researchers studying cancer and tissue regeneration. He enjoys being active outside with his family and enjoys camping, surfing and triathlon.

 

DAVID LEWElder

David was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. He graduated from California State University, Northridge with degrees in accounting, finance and real estate. His education allowed him to pursue careers in public accounting, entertainment, manufacturing, hospitality and banking industries. He started attending CCAC in 1985. The love he has for ministry and to serve others resonates in his past service as a high school student leader, Sunday school teacher, Asian American Christian Fellowship leader, Deacon, growth group leader and Church Treasurer. After serving with Nadia on the Fun Factory committee they became best friends and ultimately got married. They now have two daughters, Jadyn and Londyn, and one son, Parker. David enjoys spending time with his family outdoors, fixing/repairing things, playing and watching sports, reading and exercising.
