Bob Cherry

Senior Pastor
bobc2532@sbcglobal.net

Bob made a genuine effort to grow up in Garfield, Ky. He has been happily married for most of the 27 years that he and his High School sweetheart have been married. God has blessed Bob and LuAnn with three wonderful children which they are incredibly proud of; Rebekah, Robert, and Ryan.
 
Bob is a graduate of the University of Louisville but an avid fan of Kentucky basketball (UK) which tends to be problematic in Kentucky. Bob received a Masters Degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with focus on Counseling and Family Ministry and is currently working towards a Doctorate of Ministry degree. He began his ministry at CBC in July of 2000.

Pete Mar

Executive Pastor
petem2532@sbcglobal.net

Pete was born in Texas and moved to the Central Valley at the age of 4. He has lived in Patterson, Grayson, Madera, Modesto, and for the past 21 years in Waterford.

Pete and his wife, Linda, have been at CBC since August of 2001. They have four adult children and five grandchildren. He enjoys reading church growth and leadership books and watching John Wayne westerns. His favorite foods are pizza and ice cream. He grew up in a Pentecostal church and served in different levels of leadership until March of 2001 when He and his wife, Linda, felt led by God to leave the denomination they had grown up in. This led to their ministry at CBC.
 
Pete's vision is to become a fully devoted follower of Christ as he continues to grow as a husband, father and church leader. His prayer for our church and our community is that we learn what it means to fully surrender our lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and experience the fullness of life He promises.

Brandon Hendriks

Senior High Pastor
BrandonH@gmx.com

Brandon has been on staff at CBC since August 2009 as the Senior High Pastor. He has been a full time high school pastor since December 2002 and says that he couldn't imagine doing anything else. The plan for his life was to become a trial lawyer, but God had other plans. He says "when God got a hold of me as a Senior in high school, I then followed his call into high school ministry". He received a Bachelor's Degree in Youth Ministry with Minors in Psychology and Biblical Studies from Simpson University in Redding, CA, and is currently working towards a Master's Degree in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. 
He is blessed with an incredible wife, Melissa, who is also called to and involved in the youth ministry, and God has blessed them with two amazing boys who keep them very busy! If Brandon has any spare time after family, ministry, school, etc., he loves to snowboard, wakeboard, ride dirtbikes, and play tennis and video games.
