About

Living Hope Church ministers to people in the San Gabriel Valley with the message of Jesus Christ. We reflect the beautiful diversity of ethnicities, generations, and economic backgrounds of our community, and we worship and serve God together. The church body seeks restoration and transformation through the Holy Spirit, affecting relationships, family systems, and our community.


The church began preview services in August 2016. It is a new church planted in partnership with Arcadia Friends Community Church and other sister churches.


Pastor Freddy Rivas and his wife grew up in the communities of El Monte and Temple City, and they are now raising their four kids there. Freddy graduated from Azusa Pacific University and received a Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. He has served in pastoral ministry since 1999.
