Pastor Wayne J. Boyd was born in a small logging town in Northern California to parents who were in full-time ministry. Having been raised in a pastor’s home where the love of Jesus was truly lived out, he came into a relationship with the Lord at the age of six. He was baptized in water at nine years old, filled with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and called to the ministry at thirteen.
After attending high school and community college in Central California, Pastor Wayne studied Ministry Training in Arizona as well as receiving his Certified Ministers License with the Assemblies of God. After completing his studies there, he married his wife Christl and they entered their first ministry position as Youth Pastors in Central California. From there they served as staff pastors in Oregon and were blessed with two amazing children, Wyatt and Bethany.
In August of 2000, Pastor Wayne and his family relocated to the High Desert of California where he began serving on staff at Victorville First Assembly of God. During that time, he worked in a variety of areas including youth, school chaplain, college/career, young adults and campus pastor, as well as receiving his License to Preach through Global University and his Ordination through the Southern California Assemblies of God School of Ministry.
In 2013, the Boyd family moved to Orange County where they served as Lead Pastors for a time, until coming back “home” to Victorville. Pastor Wayne currently serves as Outreach Pastor where he is able to do what he enjoys most…loving people. Throughout his life, he has always been driven to help people and journey alongside them in life. Whether a person is walking through good times or bad, Pastor Wayne is hungry to be an encouraging force that will ultimately point them to Christ.
Whether at home, in church or around the community, Pastor Wayne is a man of prayer who believes that being transparent is the best way to reach those around him. A heart for people, an undying passion for the Lord and the moving of the Holy Spirit are the driving force behind everything he does. With a deep respect for the past and a keen eye on the future, he is always looking for fresh ways to inspire people to seek the Lord while remaining true to the Word of God and its life giving teachings.
When not at church, Pastor Wayne and his family enjoy going to amusement parks, camping and taking nice long rides in his pickup truck with the window rolled down. When he’s not hanging out with them, he loves taking some time to fish, hunt or riding his motorcycle. As long as he can be outdoors and laughing…he’s a happy man.
