Big Valley Grace Leadership

Joel Boone, BVG Senior Pastor

Greetings! My name is Joel Boone and I serve as the Senior Pastor of Big Valley Grace Community Church. Let me share some of my life with you:


I was born and raised in Modesto, CA. and have been a part of BVG staff since 2003. I have served in various leadership roles and helped launch our Ceres Campus as the Lead Pastor in 2019. In 2021, I had the privilege and honor of becoming the Senior Pastor of Big Valley Grace Community Church.


My high school sweetheart, Sarah, and I have been married for 20 years. Together, we happily raise nine children and enjoy a lifestyle of many activities.


I have earned a Bachelors in Biblical Studies and am currently pursuing a Master of Divinity degree in Pastor Studies. 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 has been inspiration that has solidified my path in fulfilling the mandate to make disciples for the kingdom.

Ceres Campus Leadership

Tim Giannosa, Ceres Campus Pastor

Hello! My name is Tim Giannosa and I am the pastor of BVG's Ceres Campus. My wife Kris and I have long been a part of the Big Valley Grace family. I was a pastor on the Modesto Campus before pastoring a church on the East Coast. We moved back to this area in March 2020, so I could shepherd the BVG Ceres campus family, and we are so excited to be back! You can contact me at [email protected] or leave a voice message for a return call at 209-571-4884.
