Pastors Diego and Cindy Mesa
Pastor Diego is the Senior Pastor of Abundant Living Family Church in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Pastor Diego, once an aspiring professional triathlete, became a Christian in 1978. In 1983 he submitted to the call of God and began attending Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After graduating from Rhema, he served as the Assistant Pastor of Word Harvest Worship Church in Pomona, California, and continued for nine years. In December 1983, Pastor Diego married Cindy Smith. The couple have three sons—Nathan, Caleb, and Adam.
Under the direction of the Lord, in April 1994, Pastors Diego and Cindy founded Abundant Living Family Church (ALFC). The church, which began in the couple's home in Fontana, California, and soon thereafter relocated to an elementary school cafeteria, started with 12 members and has increased considerably. The current average weekly attendance exceeds 6,000 people.
In 1995 Pastors Diego and Cindy relocated the church to a business park in Rancho Cucamonga. Five years later the ministry purchased the same property of 5.5 acres. In 2005 construction of the new church home began on 30 acres of land located three miles north of the business park. In December 2007 Abundant Living Family Church held its first service in the newly constructed facility which consists of over 214,000 square feet of building space.
ALFC is a non-denominational, multicultural, economically diverse family church. We are a Bible teaching church that genuinely loves God, His Word, and His people.
