We are followers of Jesus Christ, committed to being in the center of Biblical, orthodox Christian teaching and practice, holding in common the faith that has been embraced by all Christians at all times and in all places, while actively engaging in God’s current work in our community -- where God's beautiful future is breaking into our present existence.
Thus, we have an ANCIENT FAITH, a CURRENT MISSION and a FUTURE HOPE.

Dan & Laura Sanders
Church Planters & Pastors
Dan & Laura have been living with the dream of planting a church that would be a home for people of all ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds... who are drawn together by our shared passion for Jesus and our desire to be in the middle of what He is doing in the world.
Laura is originally from California. Dan grew up in the Houston area, but in 2005 relocated to Southern California for work. There they met and married 14 years ago.
Dan served as a Youth Pastor and Teaching Pastor in local churches in the Houston area prior to working with an International Christian Businessmen's ministry for the past 11 years . He earned a Bachelors degree in Theology from Houston Baptist University and a Masters in Applied Ministry from the
Wagner Leadership Institute (now Wagner University). Dan serves Christ The King Vineyard Church as the Lead Pastor.
Laura attended Life Pacific College in Los Angeles, California were she earned a Bachelor's in Biblical Studies. She then served as a Chaplain for children and teens in the Foster Care system for 11 years. During that time she attended the Anaheim Vineyard Church under the ministry of John Wimber (Founding leader of the Vineyard Movement). Laura serves Christ the King Vineyard Church as the Worship Pastor and oversees Pastoral Care and Prayer Ministries.
Today, Dan and Laura make their home in Spring, Texas, with their three sons -- Jonathan, Benjamin and Matthew -- and their little Cockapoo named Zoe. (because Laura wasn't going to be the only girl in the house). Laura enjoys reading books that inspire her, cooking, baking and entertaining, making and listening to music, and most of all, just being with those she loves. You will find Dan dreaming of taking a trip to the mountains and snow skiing, watching a good movie, reading and studying theology, enjoying live music, playing ball with the boys and most of all... hangin' out with his lovely bride.
