Godfrey Hom

Senior Pastor

Pastor Godfrey was born in Oakland to first-generation immigrants from Guangzhou, China, and was born-again at Chinese Independent Baptist Church at age 7. By God's grace, and through the many (desperate!) prayers of faithful family and mentors, he grew in faith during those early formative years.

In 1990, after finishing a B.A. in geography at Berkeley, he moved to UCLA, graduated with an M.Ed., and went on to teach secondary mathematics. In 1997, together with his bride, Stacey, he embarked on a new path towards pastoral ministry by enrolling at Talbot School of Theology, earning an M.Div. in 2000. Pastor Godfrey served at churches in Palos Verdes and Irvine before joining the FCBC-FV family in 2012.

Besides Jesus, Godfrey's joys in life are Stacey and their children Sarah, Shane, and Selah. His interests include (in alphabetical order) athletics, bargain-shopping, Bay Area sports, cars, food, games, history, home/kitchen gadgets, music and people.

Philippians 3:12–14

Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
