WHO WE ARE!

  • crystal law

    administrative assistant

    Crystal is Administrative Assistant to our children's ministry. She uses her deep faith in Jesus and spiritual gift of administration to take all the crazy ideas that come from our team and make sure the details happen. Crystal is often the “face” of First B Kids and helps in too many ways to number so we can be effective in reaching kids and families for God’s Kingdom.


    Crystal’s life away from FBC is full of a wonderful marriage to Ted Richardson and time with their two amazing sons.

  • coach jaron

    director of preteen ministries

    Jaron is in charge of our Sports and Preteen Ministries here at FBC. He and wife Danae are ALWAYS serving somewhere, including their three adopted children (so far!!). Whether in Rock Solid Kids preteen ministry, an Upward Sports league or teaching 5th & 6th graders on Sunday & Wednesday, Jaron’s eagerness to see kids know Jesus in unique ways is an overflow of his own fervent faith in Jesus!


    When Jaron is not here serving the Lord he loves to take day trips with his family and listen to podcasts learning to defend our faith even better.

  • Amanda Navarrete

    director of early childhood ministries

    Amanda oversees our kids and families from birth through kindergarten with an enthusiasm that would make you think every kid is her own and every mom is her sister. She works with our children's ministry team and her dedicated team of volunteers to create cutting edge curriculum to teach even the youngest children about the God who loves them!


    When she is not inventing new and exciting ways to communicate God’s love to little ones she is doting over her own children.

  • gina "g"

    resource queen

    If we need it in Children’s Ministry, Gina gets it! She’s the reigning expert on what you’ll find on every aisle of every store in town and most popular web sites as well. Gina’s love for Jesus and dedication to keeping things moving “behind the scenes” is truly something to behold.


    When she is not here (wait, she’s almost always here) she spends time laughing with friends and singing the words to almost every song ever written.

    troopmaster - trail life troop 0210

    My name is Joe Victorino, and I have lived in Stockton my whole life. I have been here at First Baptist since I was in jr. high, and have been working on staff for 13 years. My wife Shalom and were married in 2010 and have three wonderful children. I love everything about the outdoors, and truly feel God's presence in his creation. I believe that Trail Life USA will raise up a generation of men to know Jesus personally, and lead by His example for true biblical manhood. I am honored to be a part of this program and will enjoy seeing these young Trailmen grow in Christ through Companionship, service to our community, and the outdoor adventures.
