Pastor Jeff and Kellie are new to Kingsburg starting as Lead Pastors at Refinery Kingsburg 6/8/2014. Before they were called to Kingsburg they served as Youth Pastors to West McKinley Church in Fresno for 5 1/2 years during their time at West McKinley many students come to know Jesus. Jeff went to Bible College in Sacramento California at Capital Bible College and earned a bachelors degree in Bible and Ministry. While in college he was on staff part time as a college pastor in Lodi CA. Jeff and Kellie have two boys and love hanging out with their family and friends.
Buddy has lived in the Central Valley his whole life, and started attending Refinery in 2015. Once he became a part of the church, he jumped in and has helped out in any way possible. After a short time, God called him to work with Jr High and High School students. He leads Refinery Youth with a desire to see students come to Jesus and build friendships with one another.
Kellie has been doing ministry along side Jeff for the past 10 years. When they were called to Pastor Refinery Kingsburg, God put it on Kellie heart to develop a kids ministry. She quickly got to work and set up teams and classrooms to work with and teach our kids about the "LOVE OF JESUS."
Kellie enjoys spending time outside with her family and has been an ER Technician at the Selma hospital since 2013.
Rose Mendez was born in the Philippines and raised in Fresno, California. She first attended West McKinley Assembly of God (now Refinery West Campus) as a child back in 1996. She grew up within the church's children & youth programs, where the foundation for her faith was poured and built on. She met her husband, Alex Mendez, when they both were involved in vocal music programs at Fresno City College. Rose obtained her A.A. in Music - Vocal Performance from Fresno City College. She first served on a worship team when she was about 13 years old, playing the flute--the Worship Pastor at the time wrote flute parts for her to play so she could be part of the team. The willingness of Pastor Moore to go above & beyond to keep her involved with her limited music skills at the time really stuck with her.
She whole-heartedly believes that worship is the offering of herself as a daily living sacrifice to God. She believes in investing the "talents" bestowed by God to return greater fruit to Him. Rose has served as a drummer, keyboardist, and vocalist for Refinery West. She is grateful to God for the opportunity to serve as the Worship Leader at Refinery Kingsburg and hopes to help sow into the community.
