Madera Church Staff

Lead Pastor:
Bill White
Pastor Bill and his wife, Megan, married in 2001. They served in CO (2002-2008) and IL (2008-2019) before being called by the Lord to plant a church here in AZ. Bill’s passion is sharing the hope of Jesus, partnering with parents, and equipping people to use their gifts for God’s glory. He received a BA in Bible & Theology in 2002 and completed a MA in Spiritual Formation in 2016. Bill loves being with people, but get’s recharged by being alone in God’s creation. He enjoys hiking in the mountains, hunting big game, nature photography, and going on drives with his family to look for wildlife. A favorite passage from the Bible, amongst many, is 2 Corinthians 5:11-21.

Victor and his wife Milca want to be a light in our community and he particularly has a heart to minister to broken homes and hurting hearts here in the desert. Victor enjoys both watching and play football and soccer, as well as making and playing music. His favorite verse is Psalm 37:4. 
Children Ministry Co-Director:

Beverly and her husband, Andy, also have a passion for prayer ministry and she partners with him as he oversees our prayer ministry within Madera Church. Her favorite Bible verse is Romans 12:2. 
 Children Ministry Co-Director:
Abby Brayer
Abby accepted Christ as her personal Savior at 6 and her passion is to show children that they are not too young to understand the Gospel and let God use their whole lives to grow in His grace and knowledge. God put it on her heart to attend a Bible College and get a degree in elementary education. She has used that knowledge to work in Christian and public schools as well as homeschool her own daughters. Abby has been a Children’s ministry director of preschool age and taught kids of all ages in church for many years. Her hobbies include reading a good historical fiction book, hiking, and baking.

Building friendships and discussing God’s Word and how it relates to real life are his passion, so Small Groups and Outreach are a good fit.
