Joe and April Gutel
Planting in: Los Angeles, CA
Pastor Joe Gutel grew up as a missionary kid in Bangkok, Thailand. He gave his life to Christ at the age of 5 years old and received his first call to ministry at age 8.
He and his wife, April, served as missionaries in Cairo, Egypt for 6 years, before feeling called to return to the Los Angeles area to plant churches. They will be planting in the West San Fernando Valley of the city of Los Angeles.
Their vision is to impact their community for Christ by reaching the unchurched and de-churched in Los Angeles through aggressive community engagement, providing for the felt needs of their community, and giving people a place to belong.
They are excited about the opportunity to plant a church where unchurched seekers love to attend.
