Associate Pastor

Daniel Trinidad grew up in Grass Valley California where he would eventually start his journey with Christ Jesus as his Lord. At the age of nine, Daniel started going to church at Calvary Chapel Grass Valley which would become his home church. His neighbor Richard Cimino, who turned out to be the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Grass Valley became an influential Christian influence in his life. Daniel got plugged into church at a young age and began to have a desire to serve full time in pastoral ministry.

 Over the years Daniel grew in his relationship with the Lord and within the church body. At the age of nineteen Daniel was asked to become the youth pastor of a nearby Calvary Chapel in Penn Valley California where he would serve for the next 3 years. Sadly, at the age of 22 Daniel lost his mother to suicide. It was at that time God opened the door for Daniel to move to York England to serve at the Calvary Chapel Bible College campus.
During his time in York, England Daniel received an opportunity to move to England permanently to be a part of a church plant in Hastings England.
In July of 2007 Daniel moved permanently to Hastings, England to serve as church planter, missionary and assistant pastor.  
Daniel lived and served in Hastings for seven years where he would eventually meet his wife Sonya and have their first child together.
In 2014 the Trinidad family moved back to the U.S to take a position as Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Mid Valley in Van Nuys Ca. During their five years at Mid Valley the Trinidad family grew with the birth of their little girl Flora.
In 2020 God called the Trinidad family to Bosque Farms, New Mexico which is the hometown his wife Sonya was raised in.
Almost a year to the day, the Lord opened the door for Daniel to come on staff at Calvary Chapel Rio Grande Valley as an associate pastor where he is currently serving
