Our Team

  • Youth Director - Luis "Buddy" Rivera

    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.   

  • Refinery Worship - Rose Mendez

    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.
