Che & Deanna have been married for an amazing 11yrs. They share the same life verse – 2nd Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.” Also, they attribute their fantastic marriage to a resolute foundation in their Savior, Jesus Christ, with Ecclesiastes 4:12 as their marriage verse.
They both met while serving in youth ministry at a church in the valley, where Che fulfilled the role of youth pastor. The result of this incredible season was a return to academics for Che, where he completed undergrad and graduate Seminary studies at Liberty University. His pursuits in biblical studies, discipleship & church ministry, were done while being a stay-at -home dad to their now beautiful 9yr daughter.
With several combined years of diverse ministry experience – from missions to benevolence to music ministry to discipleship – Pastor Che and Deanna are well equipped and very eager to serve the Refresh Body in hopes of seeing God’s kids progressively become Colossians 1:28 people – Mature in Christ! In addition to Che’s role in Blended Families, supporting Pastor Donnie in a team effort with Pastor Eddie, he also serves the Church within the music & sound ministry.
