Pastor Vince Llamas
Vince is our Pastor of Visitation. He visits our homebound members and those in the hospital bringing them encouragement and prayers. Pastor Vince also provides pre-marital counseling, performs weddings, and also provides marital and pastoral counseling for New Life members. He also assists families with memorial services and funerals.
His passion is to see followers of Christ be encouraged in their walk with the Lord. He loves teaching and sharing the truth of God’s word with those new to the Christian faith, as well as to those who have walked with the Lord for a longer time.
Pastor Vince enjoys reading comic books (especially Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four) and has been an avid LA Dodger fan for years. He generally likes superhero movies, quirky comedies, and movies produced by smaller, independent studios. Most of all, he loves to be with his wife, Mary, and two sons David and Greg. Pastor Vince has a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Biola College (now Biola University), and a Master of Divinity from Biola’s Talbot School of Theology.
His favorite Bible Verse(s) are Ephesians 2:8-9 – “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast.”, and Psalm 68:5 – “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.”
