To equip the saints for the work
of ministry...

Senior Pastor

Bruce Garner

Bruce first came to CrossPoint as a college student and helped in the Spanish ministry. He grew up in Mexico, where his parents still serve as missionaries. While in college, he met his wife Charise, a “pastor’s kid” with her own passion for teaching children. After nine years on CrossPoint’s staff, Bruce and Charise went to Mexico themselves, where they worked for six years as missionaries before returning to CrossPoint. They are still a little surprised (and absolutely delighted) to be back in Huntington Beach!
