How did you end up in Little Village? What brought you to La Villita Community Church? What keeps you here? I connected with Sylvia and the coaches from the boxing gym at a conference in Boston and during that weekend they invited me to check out the gym in the basement of a church. I definitely felt something from those interactions and after visiting a couple of times I signed up. After meeting Pastor Vic, Roque, Joe, Victor, the Thornes and others it was only a matter of time before I moved. This place felt like home. The church felt like home. I was drawn to how the Spirit moved and connected people in the church - which is definitely something that keeps me here.
How did you come to know Jesus? I grew up in a Christian household with parents that took us to church every Sunday. I went from a Christian high school to a Christian university and after graduating I felt dry, disconnected and disillusioned with church. I had completely lost touch with God and my school environment had insulated me from the world. After joining La Villita Community Church, I sensed a renewed journey with God - one that I could do in community and not on my own.
