Staff  Leadership

We have a great staff at Garden Grove Friends Church, as well as a whole congregation of ministers!  We believe that everyone who is part of the believing community here at Garden Grove Friends Church are ministers; and in addition to those ministers there are certain persons who are part of the overall staff.  See the individual bios on each staff member or team lead.
