About Monterey House of Worships Pastor & Family
Pastor & Sister Albalos began thier Ministry in 1988 as Youth Pastors in the Bakersfield, California area. They soon began planting new church works in Lost Hills and Shafter, CA. After 22 years of ministry in Kern County they followed their hearts to the Modesto, CA area.
After 5 years of ministry in Stanislaus County the Lord opened doors to plant seeds of truth in Monterey, CA. The Albalos family were given permission by the Western Distict UPC to teach Bible studies on October 29, 2012. At first they met at McDonalds, parks, homes, and sometimes even in their vehicles to teach a Bible studies. Their first Bible study, two weeks later, was referred to them by the Los Banos, CA church, and he was baptized in the Name of Jesus soon after. As the group began to grow they sought out a building, and began to rent from the YMCA. In one year they had 72 first time visitors, 23 Spirit filled, and 5 baptized. After a steady year of growth the Lord opened doors for the Monterey House of Worship to relocate to the historic Carleton Hall. They have had the opportunity to teach Bible Studies to an Actress, Engineers, a Physician, Business Partners, Retired Military, Nurses, College Students, Retired School Teachers, and Homeless Vetetans.
The Monterey House of Worship believes in missions, and has sown seeds of faith and finances in Washington DC, China, Fiji, India, and the East Coast. We believe in soul winning, loving people, planting churches, and giving back to the kingdom of God.
The Albalos family thank God, for the leaders in their lives, their friends, their family, and the Western District for their support.

Today is the official 5-year mark of Monterey House of Worship. Thank you Jesus & we give Him all the glory!
For years I would pray over a vacation mug that said Monterey/Carmel....asking the Lord to save these cities...little did I know the Lord would send the Albalos family to start a church for his kingdom.
Since our arrival here in Monterey ... we have baptized 101 people in the name of Jesus & about 76 have received the Holy Ghost.... our record attendance was 253. To God be the Glory! We currently have Preaching Points or Bible Studies in: Carmel by the Sea (We have use of a beautiful building at no cost...to God be the Glory!), Prunedale, Pacific Grove, Gonzalez, and King City. We have seen gang members, chefs, bartenders to celebrities, Professors, homeless, elected officials, and Military Officers come to God...again to God be the Glory!
Within our first week of living on the peninsula, God opened doors for our two oldest children with employment (one at a toy store where celebrities shop & another who pet sits for local celebrities.... currently all four children are employed. God has provided every step of the way! Thank you Jesus & to God be the Glory! Within our first year as Home Missionaries God provided for us to pay off our vehicles. God has opened doors for us to worship in a beautiful & historical place (Thank you Hyphen, WAY choir, REFRESH for using it to host events) at a nominal fee. I believe many of these financial miracles are a direct result of being a giving church. Thank you, Jesus...we currently sponsor 6 Foreign Missionaries officially and 1 unofficially. Last year God allowed us the opportunity to give $1000 to Sheaves for Christ & $1600.42 to Christmas for Christ... Again, to God be the Glory!
We haven't reached all of our goals & we have faced a few oppositions. but God continues to fight for us!
I want to thank the Western District Home Missions Department, Western District Ladies Department, the Western District Youth Department for their financial support. I want to thank Pastor Gordon Richardson, the Dale Runyan Estate, Pastor Paul Carrasco, Pastor Don Demyan, Pastor John Mullings, Pastor Michael Hanks, Pastor Tony Copple, Pastor Tim Bledsoe, and Pastor Richard Grandquist for blessing us financially at various times.
If you ever visit Monterey House of Worship... there are a few things you'll continually hear over the pulpit.
1. We want to look, smell, and feel like the early book of Acts church.
2. We want to have a spirit of "More than Enough" .... not just for "Us" ... but to assist someone else and...
3. I have two goals for our saints & myself at Monterey House of Worship. 1. Live a great Life for God on this Earth 2. That we all make it to Heaven
We give God ALL the Glory & we thank him a million times!
Our theme for 2019 is "100 Souls" ... Please continue to pray for the Monterey House of Worship.
We love all of you!
