Mario and Betty Gonzalez Have been married for over 30 Years and have four children and two grandchildren.  Born In El Salvador, they came to the United States seeking a better life than their war torn country provided.  After living In California for many years, they came to Oregon in 1997.  It wasn’t until 1999 that Mario gave his life to the Lord.  Almost immediately, they began to study the Bible taking courses and growing in their desire for Pastoral Theology and Evangelism.
In 2009 they became aware of a struggling ministry in Astoria and were called to come and help. It didn’t take long for their ministry to take hold and for the congregation to grow and become more healthy.  Pastor Mario has a heart to serve.  He is often found fixing cars, helping his neighbors, and serving his family.
