Mark is originally from Texas and is a graduate of Howard Payne University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  He is a big fan of the Angels, and loves college football and the NFL, movies with great lines that can be used in almost every context, and, of course, food trucks. He also loves to makes the Bible and its amazing stories relevant, understandable, and practical. He captures the heart of great motivators whenever possible as he preaches and his favorite saying to the Journey Family is, "Whatever you do, don't give in, give out, give up or quit!"

Worship Pastor

Jeff Harris

Jeff Harris is happily married to his beautiful wife, Jayna, and has two boys. Jeff began playing the piano at the age of four and switched to the guitar at the age of 13. Since that time, he has played for Randy Jackson, Crystal Lewis, and participated in countless numbers of recording sessions as a featured soloist. He also played the Hollywood circuit with his original bands for more than twenty years. Jeff comes from a family of talented musicians who often join him on the platform at church. Two things have always been a constant in Jeff's life...music and God. In 2008, Jeff retired from the secular musician scene and devoted his talents to leading worship at Saddleback Church's Overdrive venue.  Jeff spent six years readying the congregation to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ...with an edgy, rock-style type of music. In 2014, Jeff felt God leading him elsewhere and found himself at the Journey Church. The Journey Church has allowed Jeff to bring his unique sty;e of worship to a more intimate and personal venue. His passionate and relevant relationship with Jesus Christ is apparent in the way that he delivers his message through his musical styles. Jeff is a huge Lakers fan and enjoys playing the drums and watching Hallmark movies.

Leonard and Pauline Ng are our most recently added members of the staff of The Journey CHurch and lead our Pastoral Care Ministry. They are also actively serving as the coaches for each of our Spiritual Fitness course participants. We are blessed by their sweet spirit of service, their constant source of encouragement, and their faithful example of commitment to Christ. Leonard was licensed to the gospel ministry by The Journey Church early on in 2017 and his ordination has been planned and will be celebrated by The Journey Church October, 2017.

Leonard's background story is an amazing one and it is best discovered in his own words as found in the bio shared below.

Prior to serving in The Journey Church, Yorba Linda, Leonard Ng has served as a deacon in First Chinese Baptist Church of Walnut for more than 25 years.  In 2013, he retired from Raytheon Systems after a 33 year career in finance to complete his studies at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity.  Upon graduation in 2014, Leonard has been serving as a guest speaker in various churches in Southern California. 

Pauline has faithfully served alongside of Leonard as a pastor’s wife and a deacon’s wife encouraging and ministering women of all ages.  She is a licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientist and currently a part of the Alhambra Hospital Medical Center management team serving in the departments of Clinical Laboratory and Radiology.      

Leonard met Pauline in college, and they have been happily married for 38 years.  They have lived in Southern California most of their lives, and currently reside in Diamond Bar, California.  Together they raised two married adult children Tiffany and Nicholas.  Nicholas is married to Dalphin, living in Placentia, California.  Tiffany is married to Philbert living in Arcadia, California. 


Missions Pastor

Larry Blair

Larry and Dawn Blair came into The Journey Church Leadership team after twelve years of pastoring a nearby congregation in Orange County. They resigned to prepare themselves for the mission field to become church planters in the city of Tetovo, Macedonia. In that setting, they intend to plant the first Christian church in a city of more than 75,000 Albanian Muslims. While they were preparing for this new calling in their life, they have found a home with the Journey family and are leading us in becoming more involved in both local and global missions.

We are happy to report that are now residing in the country of Albania where they will be spending the remainder of 2017 learning the native tongue of the Albanian refugees who they will be ministering to in the country of Macedonia. 

Below, is Larry's update on who and where they currently are:

Larry and Dawn Blair have been in ministry partnership for most of their 34+ years of marriage. They met and married in Midland, Texas after Larry graduated from Texas Tech University. After a satisfying career in the business world, Larry answered the call to the ministry in 2003. He served as pastor of a church in Orange County for 12 years, and Dawn has been equally busy serving in local ministry as an ESL teacher and missions coordinator. As a result of their involvement in a ministry to Arabic refugees in Anaheim, they are now preparing to go abroad and work with an unreached Muslim people group.  Larry and Dawn have three wonderful children, a great son-in-law and daughter-in-law, and four precious grandchildren that have captured their hearts.
