PASTOR: Cindy Beck

Pastor Beck is our interim Pastor during our process of calling a permanent pastor.  She comes to us as a specialist in transition. 
We are in the process of calling a full time Pastor. We are blessed with the leadership of Interim Pastor Cindy Beck.
MUSIC DIRECTOR: Dave Wammer
I came to Sacramento & Advent in 1986 in what was my last assignment in a 24 year Air Force Career. My wife Barbara and I joined the choir and 2 years later, I "temporarily" became its director. However, I was no stranger to directing choirs, beginning with directing a men's chorus as a student as St. Olaf College and continuing throughout my Air Force travels. With Advent's growth, the position was expanded into that of Music Director. While it has many facets, I believe the job of the Music Director is actually very simple - "Facilitate the Song of the Church."
ORGANIST - Bruce Crain

Bruce holds a degree and graduate studies in Organ and Music from the University of Nebraska.  He has held positions as organist and choir director for Methodist, Episcopal and Presbyterian churches.
CHILDREN'S MINISTRY DIRECTOR: Natalie Jones
Natalie holds a California teaching certificate and works as a teacher.  She leads our children's Sunday School and Wednesday evening children's programs, as well as leading Vacation Bible School and assisting with Youth ministry.  Natalie is a long-time member of Advent, now with her husband and three children.
SECRETARY: Beth Mora
I have been a member of Advent for many years, serving on Council as a Council President, Treasurer and Secretary. During that time I've been involved with the church's long range plan, adult education, and technology upgrades to name a few initiatives. I have been the church newsletter editor for approximately 5 years, as well as creating the Sunday and Wednesday worship bulletin and power point presentations. I enjoy this position, as it pulls it all together working with the great people of Advent.
