Currently, Dave and Debbie reside with their whole family in Los Angeles, CA where they are continuing to plant their third church (Great Life 310) in the South Bay area. David and Debbie's boldness and vision to step out of the four walls of their church has led them to speak at many leadership conferences, marriage seminars, and youth gatherings around the globe. These travels cause them to be in different states and countries 50% of the year while spending the other 50% with their local church that regard them as spiritual "dad and mom". With leaders and pastors like David and Debbie Katina, you are sure to be encouraged, inspired, and empowered to be all that God has called you to be!
over the course of an acclaimed career spanning more than a dozen years, Nic Gonzales lead singer of the band Salvador has embraced a veritable rainbow of musical styles, from the Tex-Mex and Latin sounds of the band’s Austin, Texas birthplace, to hip-hop, pop, jam band rhythms, rock and much more. but it took their first album in more than four years, Make some Noise, to turn Salvador into something they hadn’t been since their earliest days: a garage band. Yet if “Make some Noise” blazes a new trail for this seven-piece band, it’s delivered them back to where the journey began. In energy and enthusiasm, joy and abandon, infectious groove and inviting love, the new album traces a laser-straight line to the band’s first full-length, self-titled release in 2000. long before their billboard Latin Music Award nominations or the 2004 Dove Award for Spanish language Album of the Year, “Salvador” put the band on the map with festive, breathtaking songs such as “Lord, I Come before You.” The album marks a full-circle moment for a band that has toured with Third Day, worked with producer Chris Rodriguez, and performed at Dr. billy Graham’s final New York City crusade in 2005.
Nic now lives in Nashville, TN with his wife Jaci velasquez, and their two boys, Zealand and Soren. Nic is also vice-President of The Salvador foundation (salvadorfoundation.org), a nonprofit organization that helps the people in south America to have shelter, education, and a sense of hope.
