Leadership Team

Pastor Charlie Rice - Lead Pastor 
I grew up in Portland, OR where I asked Jesus to be my Savior at age 9. I have been married to a wonderful lady, Karen, since 1980, and have three great young-adult children (Tana, Micah, and Crystal). What drives me is not my profession, but my love relationship with Jesus Christ.

Pastor Rog Hosier - Associate Pastor
(Senior Adult Ministries & Crisis Care)

At the age of 8, I invited the Lord Jesus into my life to be my Savior. I am married to a beautiful lady, Joyce with a blended family consisting of four children and three grandchildren. While serving the Lord in different capacities, it has been my privilege to see the Lord work in, and change the lives of those I have ministered to...along with my own.

Pastor Jay Cordova - Student Ministries
(Jr. High, High School & College Ministries)

I grew up in the South Bay area and received Jesus Christ as my Savior at the age of seven. In 1992, I married my beautiful wife, Teresa and we have two teenaged children, Allison & Jonathan. God's great love for me compels me to serve Him and to help others discover a life-changing relationship with Him as I have.

Levana Condon - Children's Ministries Director
Born in Munich, Germany, raised Southern Baptist, at age 5, I made my own profession of faith in Christ. I am married to Jim going on 26 years, with four children, all of which I have home-schooled. Our three oldest are married and we have two grandchildren. I have discovered what a gracious God I serve. I learned that He loves me and is my best friend and that I could never survive without Him.

Mark Duvall - Worship Arts Director

Other than a few years in college, I am a lifetime resident of Torrance, and an English teacher at Torrance HS. I am happily married to the fetching Casie Duvall with whom I have two incredible children, Gibson & Haley, and a couple of sweet and crazy labradors Molly & Olive. I have played in worship bands for more than 20 years before finding a home at TFB in 2002. After being encouraged to lead corporate worship by my longtime friend & mentor, Dave Detwiler, it became clear to me that this was a calling that I had long ignored.

Randy Stager - Blended Worship Music Director
I received Christ as my Savior during a 5th grade Sunday School class. In the 9th grade, I began serving the Lord through music. For the past 35 years, I have served God in one capacity or another in music ministry, and have been tremendously blessed doing so! My beautiful wife, Vicki and I have been married for almost 25 years. We have five wonderful children (Kaela, Chelsea, Courtney, Ethan & Emily).

Trev Schulte - Junior High Director
Saved through grace, I am indebted to the Lord's work.  I am intent on living a life in service to God, who gave my life meaning and considers me one of His own. I am a simple man with an extraordinary Father and a lot of feet to wash. I recently married the love of my life, Mary and together we enjoy serving with Junior High students.
Tammy Hurtado - Nursery Director
