The Harbor Team

At The Harbor, we believe God has called us to equip the Body of Christ to do the work of the ministry. We are largely volunteer led, with a few key staff to help us most efficiently reach our mission of making and maturing disciples through serving and carrying out the ministry of the local church.

Matt and Staci

Worship & Student Ministries Pastor: Matt Patterson

Matt Patterson leads our Worship and Student Ministries, and is passionate about authentic worship, disciple-making, and seeing youth put their faith into action. Matt has served in full-time ministry for over 15 years and loves seeing God’s word and love take root in the lives of those around him.

Teaching Elder: Mark Mayberry

Mark Mayberry is our primary Teaching Elder. Mark’s background attending Seminary and love for God provide compelling, thought-provoking sermons on a regular basis as he takes on challenging passages, and guides our congregation faithfully through unpacking God’s word and discovering its truths.

HarborKids: Jan Holford, Julie Bond, Staci Patterson, Stephanie Childers

Jan, Julie, Staci & Stephanie are a co-op leadership team that organizes all aspects of our Children’s Ministry at The Harbor. The team of volunteers that love on our children each week at The Harbor through Children’s Ministry activities is one we place a very high value on. We want to partner with parents to raise up godly children who grow into godly adults who are grounded in the Gospel, love God, love others, and serve their community. We believe that our children are not just the church of tomorrow, but the church of today.


Royal Family KIDS Camp: Jan Holford, Eric & Diane Rae

Jan, Eric & Diane lead an incredible team that hosts annual summer camps for at-risk foster children in North Santa Barbara county. Royal Family KIDS camps pour love into abused and neglected kids, and can alter the course of a child’s life. The Harbor launched the Santa Maria chapter of Royal Family KIDS in 2010, and partners with local businesses and churches in the community to provide camps, mentoring, and after-school clubs to meet the deep needs of these children.
