Our Church Staff

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who make up our congregation. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:

Raised in Michigan, Sharon became an RN working in pediatrics and obstetrics. Moving to California, she raised four children and earned a degree from Fuller Seminary before being ordained at Presbyterian Church of the Covenant and becoming the full-time chaplain at the Long Beach Memorial/Miller Children’s Hospital. There she works with children in the intensive care units and their families. In her spare time, Sharon enjoys seven grandchildren, quilting, scrap-booking, reading and traveling.

A musician since the age of three, Cornel started with a pump organ in his family home in Romania before graduating with a degree in cello from the National Academy of Music in Bucharest. Since then he has returned to his first love, the organ, and moved to the US where he has been involved in church music as a composer, director and organist. Cornel brings a passion for music and experience combined with a deep desire to further the spiritual growth of our congregation through the ministry of music. He teaches the cello at Vanguard University and lives with his wife Magdalena and family in Costa Mesa.

He brings over fifteen years of experience, appearing on “The Hour of Power” with artists such as John Tesh, Kathy Mattea and Twila Paris. Danny also works as an actor in television, film and radio and performs for women’s conferences. Pastors around the country have enjoyed having him for their events.
