Highland Avenue Community Church of the Nazarene in Rancho Cucamonga, California

Introducing Our New Senior Pastor – Pastor Gabriel Martin!

If you haven’t met him and his family yet, please join us on Sunday at 9:30 or 11:00am



Pastor Gabriel Martin graduated from PLNU in 2001 with a degree in Social Work and proceeded to work toward his ordination as an Elder in the Church of the Nazarene in 2006. He has served in ministry as a worship leader, youth pastor, church planter and senior pastor. He has a passion for preaching and pursuing the Kingdom of God within the local church and surrounding community.

Aiko Martin graduated from PLNU in 2000 with a degree in Biology and has pursued a career in the biology and education field. She earned her Master’s in Secondary Education in 2007; and has taught elementary, high school and college students. In addition to her professional career, she has partnered in ministry with Gabriel and pursued her God-given passion for community networking and cultivating relationships.

Gabriel and Aiko are the parents of five children. Addy (almost 12), Kai (10), Stephanie (7), Emi (3), and Titus (1). Their family has been called to partner with the California foster care system which has led to the adoption of Stephanie and the future adoption finalization of Emi and Titus. All 5 children are unique and an active part of the Martins’ calling and ministry.

We were blessed to have the family with us on September 6th.  If you missed it, you can watch the video recording on YouTube – click here.
