ERNIE & SARAH GARZA
As Executive Pastor Ernie wants nothing more than for you to encounter God on a daily basis. Ernie strives to help develop and lead the lead team at Bloom Church. To be a Church that says “Every Person Matters” Ernie & Sarah understand that we must make sure that our ministry departments have the proper development so that people do not fall through the cracks, but they have a place they can grow into who God created them to be. Ernie & Sarah are the proud parents to 4 beautiful children daughters Jordan and Mayah, and sons Jaxton and Britton.
MATT & AMBER HARMON
Our Mission is to help Students from K-12th BLOOM into who God has created them to be. We believe that a students relationship with God is important and crucial in those formative years. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Matt and Amber Harmon, as Student Pastors, believe introducing children to who God is, what He has done for them, and cultivating a personal relationship with their Heavenly Father. As proud parents of Kierstyn, Sophia, Carson, and Isabella, Matt and Amber are committed to a life of authenticity and dedication to the Lord.
