Hector Gonzales

New Hope Ministries / Church Administrator

My name is Hector Gonzales and I am currently the Church Operations Administrator as well as an Ordained Associate Pastor under Pastor Jeff Johnson. I have been on staff with Calvary Chapel of Downey since 1999.  My ministry here at CCD started in our janitorial department and as the Lord moved in my life He blessed me with the privilege of becoming the pastor and director of the New Hope Recovery Ministry here at CCD in 2005. I assumed my current position as Church Operations Administrator in 2010. I am the father of nine awesome children who have caused me to go bald and have been madly in love with my beautiful wife Diana for over 24 years.

My life verse is Luke 7:47 "Therefore I say unto you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little."  (In other words, those who are forgiven much love much.)
