Our Mission: Worship, Grow, Serve & Multiply
Pastor Siders

Russ Siders

In 1998, I came to Tulare with my young family to pursue a compelling call from God, to help start a church that would reflect the surrounding community by communicating the life changing message of Jesus Christ in both English and Spanish. God graciously teamed me up with some tremendous people of faith, and Sunrise Community was born.

Since that time, my wife Mindy and I have watched our two sons grow up into young men, and we have added a daughter-in-law along the way! The Sunrise family has grown as well. People of all ages have experienced the joy of becoming children of God through a relationship with Jesus. Along the way, we have added a “daughter” church, too! Imago church, located in Visalia, is a gospel-centered ministry seeking to reach out in both English and Spanish so that people can find hope through a relationship with Jesus.

Helping people to discover God’s compelling call for their life is what motivates me to get up every day and proclaim, “This is the day the Lord has made!” If I can help you in your own discovery process, please contact me.
