Matt Guarino

Lead Pastor (AV Campus)
Matt is a longtime resident of the Antelope Valley, where he lives with his
wife Nicole and son Noah. His family life mirrors the values of love, faith,
and commitment that he imparts to those he shepherds. With over ten years of ministry, his desire to connect with people and grow the Kingdom of God is made clear. He is passionate about seeing emerging leaders grow into mature disciples.

Matt's pursuit of a deeper understanding of theology and pastoral care led him to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Advanced Biblical and Cultural Exegesis. He currently attends Western Seminary, where he’s pursuing his Master of Divinity. His unwavering dedication to both his profound biblical teaching, as well as his family and those around him make him a well respected example of a life well-lived in service to a higher calling.

Other places you’ll find Matt when not preaching include mountain biking, challenging others to burpee challenges, and trips to Coldstone with the family where you can never go wrong with a bowl of chocolate devotion!

Cydney Amposta

Campus Coordinator 
Cydney moved to the Antelope Valley in 2018 after marrying her husband
Caleb. They now have two beautiful daughters, Romi and Marigold. The
Amposta’s have made a huge impact on the Antelope Valley and we could not be more excited to have this family serving at SV-AV.

Cydney graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelors in Political Science and Masters in Higher Education and Student Affairs. During her time at Ohio University, she surrendered her life to Christ and started serving in a ministry called Young Life where her love of sharing the Gospel with others first began. Using all she learned through her education program and counseling courses, you’ll often find her out in the community making a connection with new families.

Eventually, Cydney transitioned to ministry in the local church where she excels in discipleship. Even with everything on her schedule, she continues to make time for deep relationships with people. Cydney does not need a stage to make a difference— behind the scenes she is impacting countless lives. Our team would not be complete without her sense of humor and spiritual gifts.  Warning: Cydney is an expert in sarcasm.
