Formerly, Dr. Ince served at Grace DC Presbyterian Church as Director of the Institute for Cross-Cultural Mission.

In January 2006, after an 11-year career as an engineer with Motorola, he began pastoral ministry at Mount Zion Covenant Church in Bowie, Maryland, which merged with New Town Church in Columbia to plant City of Hope Presbyterian Church, where he served as Senior Pastor from 2007–2017. He is the author of The Beautiful Community: Unity, Diversity and the Church at Its Best, published in 2020, and also contributed to the books Heal Us Emmanuel: A Call for Racial Reconciliation, Representation, and Unity in the Church, and All Are Welcome: Toward a Multi-Everything Church. He and his wife, Kim, have been married 29 years and have four grown children.
THE REVEREND RONNIE GARCIA grew up in Houston, Texas, with hardworking and loving Mexican immigrant parents. By God’s grace, he surrendered his life to Christ in high school. In college, at the U.S. Air Force Academy, Ronnie was discipled and his passion for studying the Bible was kindled. Even though he served five years as an officer, he always looked for opportunities to serve in the local church. During Ronnie’s first assignment in the Air Force, he met his wife, Amanda. Over the last 20 years, they have lived in three countries, six houses, and now have four teenagers. The bulk of Ronnie’s ministerial life has been directed at helping to plant the first three PCA churches in Puerto Rico. Recently, the Garcias moved to Denver, Colorado, where Ronnie serves as the Senior Pastor of Denver Presbyterian Church.
