My name is Richard Sochel. I am very glad you stopped to read this and other bios on the website. The Ventura Vineyard is a creative, unique, and special church. It has been my church family, learning community and place of worship since 2003. I am married to Kathy Navarro Sochel and I have two adult children.
It is my privilege and honor to be part of the church’s Leadership Team to serve the Ventura Vineyard community both as an Elder and Associate Pastor. I serve as Elder over the Prayer Team, and intercultural ministry (e.g. Missions). These areas are dear to me. I also serve as a member of the Teaching Team and I am the church’s Board President. Please reach out to me by email at email@example.com to say “hello” or ask a question.
