Originally from South Texas, Rev. Mike and Sara Hinojosa have been a part of the Southern California District of the Assemblies of God since 1987. Mike & Sara served as youth and associate pastors in the South Bay for several congregations before becoming senior pastors in West LA for 11 ½ years.
In November, 2005, the Hinojosa’s heard the call and accepted the invitation to assume the Lead Pastor role here at Christian Life Church and are excited about their return to the South Bay. “We love the South Bay every bit as much as we love the West Side. We believe God has brought us here ‘for such a time as this’. We look forward to teaming up with this wonderful congregation and together seeing the Lord do great things among us.”
The Hinojosa’s have given themselves to building ministry through diversity. “We believe the local church should reflect the demographics of the land. Cross-cultural, multi-ethnic communities of faith are what we should all look like! Diversity, Diversity, Diversity! That’s what the Kingdom is comprised of and what we believe in.”
The Hinojosa’s have three children, Mike Jr., Stephanie, and Christopher.
