I can honestly say I am very humbled for the opportunity God has given me to be apart of Momentum. I was born and raised in Van Buren and have seen the growth and change of the city. My family truly considers it a blessing to be apart of this growing ministry. I have been married for over 18 years to my help mate Crystal and we have two children Christian and Bostyn. We consider our children our biggest blessing God has ever given to us and are very proud God entrusted us with their raising.
My 10 year old ,Christian, is the most caring and lovable kid you will ever know. Bostyn, my 5 year old, is full of energy and ready for life at all times. He gets his name from his daddy’s obsession with the Boston Celtics. My wife is a stay at home mom and does an excellent job of keeping us all together. We truly love ministry and love getting to know people in order to make a positive impression on their lives. I thank God daily for calling us to serve at Momentum.

A native of Oklahoma, I have called Arkansas home for the last 19 years. I married my husband, Marlon Bonilla, in 2004 and have four beautiful children together: Leighanne, EJ, Cross and Paleigh. I am a full-time stay at home mom.
Our family relocated to Van Buren is 2008 due to my husband’s job and have lived here since. We are active in our community coaching little league soccer through the Van Buren Boys and Girls Club. I am also an active member of Parkview elementary PTA and Butterfield PTA.
We have been blessed to be part of this church family since 2012. I have been involved with children’s ministry in some capacity for over 10 years. I love working with children and constantly looking for innovative ways to teach them about the Word.
If you had asked me over 10 years ago if I ever considered living in Arkansas, I would have looked at you as if you were crazy. I was born and raised in Hawaii, got my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing at the University of Hawaii, was in the Air Force for 10 years, have three beautiful kids, and was a stay at home mom for more than 10 years. But, I did not know Jesus Christ.
Our Lord has led me on an awesome journey to Arkansas because He loved me when I rejected Him. And, when I was at my lowest point He lifted me up. I have been pursuing Him for the last 10 years, and He has led me to Momentum Church. Through my job I learn about His grace and mercy daily. I love working with fellow believers who are committed to spreading His love to others. And, by the way, I love Arkansas!
