Guy Fox

Guy Fox - Lead Pastor -

Guy is a California native who loves baseball, ice cream, and hanging out with his family.

He is married to Kathy, the woman of his dreams, and with three boys, their house is rarely quiet. When not coaching his boys or cheering on the Chargers, he is probably scheming how to get rid of the family cat, Samantha.

He loves reaching out to people with the love of Jesus and would like to meet you some time soon.
