He was ordained in 2014 and served as pastor of youth ministry, until taking over as senior pastor in February of 2020.  When he's not at church or involved with other ministries, he can be found on the golf course, or on the basketball court as an NCAA Div.

Glenn Moore

Associate Pastor

Pastor Glenn, along with his wife Pam, has been with FBCAC since 2005. Pastor Glenn brings a wealth of experience to the ministry, and serves as pastor of Men's Ministry as well. His love for ministry and service towards others is only matched by his passion for cooking!

Monica Dente 

Women's Ministry Leader

Monica joined our FBCAC family in 2014 after moving from Turlock to be closer to her then-boyfriend, Pastor Jeremy.  Monica faithfully serves in multiple ministries, while most of her gifting is focused as Women's Ministry Leader, through which she gets to express her passion and love for women. 

Carmen Costa

Co - worship Leader

Carmen comes to our FBCAC family as a Bay Area transplant, having led worship over the last 20 years in a variety of settings, from church worship services, retreats, and workplace worship. When she is not playing guitar, cooking or pouring over the Bible, she is loving and caring for her husband Mike and their kids Avery, Carly, and Aiden. When ministering through worship, a couple key verses in Carmen's heart and mind are John 4:23 and Colossians 3:16.

Kim Paulden

Co - worship Leader

Kim has been an active member of our worship team for the last few years and has grown into a very gifted worship leader.  A business owner and volunteer-extraordinaire, Kim and her high school-sweetheart-husband Paul have 5 wonderful children - Austin, Ashley, Emily, Travis, and Jeremy.
