Who We are


The Malibu Gathering Church exists as a church of Jesus Christ to encourage and equip people to live in Christ, with community, for others. 


We are led by a plurality of elders who seek to shepherd and care for our church family in grace and truth by walking faithfully and humbly with God, prayerfully guiding and making decisions, and compassionately sharing life with one another and our community, all that Jesus may be glorified.  

Our elders are:

Brian Kelly- bkkelly@malibugathering.org

Tony Mark- tmark@malibugathering.org

Bruce Pina- bpcolada@gmail.com

Brian Renner (on sabbatical) 

Lockwood Holmes (on sabbatical)

Joel Lopata (on sabbatical)

Stewardship Team

The finances and financial decisions of the church also have the oversight of our Stewardship Team. The Stewardship team works together with the elders to prayerfully, generously, and wisely use the money that comes to the Gathering to sustain our ministries in our community, ultimately glorifying God and bringing the light of the gospel to all.  The Stewardship Team consists of: Lizzy Baldwin, Tracy Stoker, Laura Mulder.
