Bonnie was born in San Jose, CA. She and her husband Omar have been together since December 2000, having met while working together at Big 5. Bonnie moved to Sacramento in 2001 and Omar and his family followed along with his family. They married in August 2005. They do not have children of their own but they say they have 40+ teenagers because they coach high school sports. Bonnie grew up Catholic but once she found her church home with The Crossing in Natomas, she formed her relationship with God and found His unconditional love. God has called Bonnie to love teens and she considers serving her church a gift and looks for ways to love people daily.
Delona was born and raised in Bethany, Oklahoma and attended the Bethany School System all 12 years before walking across the street to attend Bethany Nazarene University (now Southern Nazarene University). She married and was in ministry for over 20 years in the Church of the Nazarene before circumstances led to a now 17-year career in Bookkeeping and Tax Preparation. In 2019, she became licensed as an Enrolled Agent and works for a CPA firm in Auburn, California. God’s calling on her life came in high school, first as a pastor’s wife, which was a calling to truly just love people where they are at and to value them. She has found that she can still live in that calling as a mom, grandma, friend, bookkeeper and tax preparer. Delona has 4 grown, married children, 5 grandchildren, and a 10-year-old tabby cat named Bunker. God is Faithful!
