Josh Lane was born and raised in Sacramento. After working as a youth pastor for churches in Atwater and Santa Rosa, he returned home where he is currently the lead pastor for Northside Church. His call to ministry began with serving at a high school summer camp. Camp has always been a part of his heartbeat for ministry.

David Wheeler serves as the lead pastor at Sonora Community Church. He volunteers in his community by coaching and serving on the Board of Directors and for his local Little League. Previously, he worked as the Short-term Missions Coordinator for Foursquare Missions International. David and his wife, Denise, served in the United Kingdom as missionaries in 2004-2005. Before that time, he was the Youth Pastor and Worship Leader at Santa Maria Foursquare Church, located in the Central Coast of California. David enjoys fishing with his fly rod, which has made all the trout in Tuolumne County a little bit safer (we are aware of this Foursquare association but it most likely wouldn't impact the theology in the music and if it does, we'll talk about it as men can and do - Paul).
