The first time I walked in it took me back to my childhood, it is what I remember churches looked like, complete with pews, vaulted ceilings and even stained glass windows. It is a smaller venue with an old school country small town feel. Just about then is when you expect to see a preacher just south of 100 years old to come out and bore you to tears. Thankfully that isn’t what happened.
The story goes something like this, little church in Riverside needed some help with an attendance of about 40-50 parishioners. After serving as the executive pastor at New Beginnings Community Church campus in Norco California Sean was presented an opportunity to lead his own church and New Beginnings Community Church Jurupa Valley was born.
Sean Ortiz and his wife Laureen have been in ministry all over the world for the better part of 20 years. Although they are both worship leaders at heart they have been leaders in many different capacities during that span. Meet them just once and you will have an understanding of their commitment to be there for people whatever it takes. If you have known Sean for any amount of time over 1 day you will have heard him make the statement “let go and let God.” It is what he lives his life by.
Sean and his wife Laureen started this new adventure in the summer of 2016 and the attendance is around 200. When you sit down and talk to Sean you know, deep down in your heart, that his number one goal is to help every person he meets reach their full potential in Jesus Christ.
You can find Pastor Sean preaching an applicable and engaging message every Sunday starting at 10 a.m.
