pastors & STAFF
RONNIE & PORTIA FLORES - SENIOR PASTORS
Pastor Ronnie started youth pastoring at Meadows in 2010, and was brought on staff as a full time associate pastor later that year. In just five short years he went from overseeing NextGen ministries to serving as co-pastor, and then finally in November 2015, Foursquare appointed Pastor Ronnie as senior pastor of Meadows Fellowship.
Prior to entering ministry, he spent ten years playing professional baseball, with the majority of his career spent in the Oakland Athletics organization. His dream of pitching in the Major Leagues first became a reality in 2005. Immediately after retiring from baseball, Pastor Ronnie and his wife, Portia, began ministering to the young adults and youth at Meadows, and completely fell in love with ministry.
Pastor Portia began assisting at the church office in early 2012, and was quickly hired as a full-time administrative assistant. In the years to follow, she served in a variety of aspects at Meadows, from nursery and kids to hospitality and counseling. She received her pastoral license in January 2014 and was appointed Senior Pastor alongside her husband in 2015.
Pastors Ronnie and Portia are involved in leadership with the Pacific Southwest District NextGen leadership, the Foursquare district youth team, and have directed the last six summer camps at Camp Cedar Crest. The couple enjoyed a special moment in their ministry and their marriage in October 2016, when they were both Ordained by Foursquare together.
Ronnie and Portia have three kids: Ethan, Julia, and Ryan. All are involved with the youth and kids ministries at Meadows, as well as football, soccer, musical theater, etc.
