Pastor Wayne and his wife, Lynnea, along with seven others, planted the Church of ACTS in 2007 starting with a Bible Study in their home. They have been married for 41 years and have five children and 15 grandchildren.
After years of running from and rebelling against God, a Cursillo weekend (a short course spiritual retreat) turned his life around and he began listening to God's voice and what He wanted him to do. Raised by missionary parents in the Amazon Jungles of Peru and in Santiago, Chile, Pastor Wayne knew what the life of a preacher was like and he wanted no part of it. God had other plans. He says he was a "Jonah" all the way to his ordination. Pastor Wayne was ordained in 2011 and became the Senior Pastor in 2015.
He and his wife have organized mission trips back to the Amazon Jungles of Peru, Belize, and Guatemala. Today he believes God has called him to the mission fields of Hemet, San Jacinto and the surrounding areas.
Lynnea is a retired school teacher and now the Director of the Bread Basket Food Bank, an outreach ministry of the Church of ACTS. Along with the help of several volunteers, the food bank helps feed families in need in the surrounding areas.
