About Life Way Church

Faith, community and worship. These are the cornerstones behind Life Way Church, and we approach each day with these in mind. Founded in 1990, our Church was established on the ideals of giving everyone a chance to learn, grow, and define their own identity through worship. Becoming a church member means joining a family who, each day, are devoted to expressing their love of God.


Meet the Esteves

Senior Pastor Chris Esteves

Chris A. Esteves was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1961. His family relocated to California in 1963 and he spent his childhood in South Central Los Angeles. After graduating high school, Chris enlisted into the United States Air Force and later accomplished a career as a Bio-Medical Engineer. 


In November of 1984, the Lord called Chris Esteves to the ministry. He founded Life Way Church of Pomona in 1990 and in September 1998 he opened a second location: Life Way Church of Rancho Cucamonga and released the Pomona location. In the Spring of 2005, Life Way Church built a 1000-seat edifice, and as Senior Pastor, Chris A. Esteves ministers  various dynamic life-changing services. 

First Lady Joyce Esteves

 Sister Joyce was born and reared in Compton, California. After finishing high school, she became a legal secretary and excelled in her chosen profession. In 2004, Sister Joyce was ordained as a Minister. This empowered her with the skills necessary to assist her husband, Pastor Chris Esteves, in laying the foundation and establishing Life Way Church.


As Life Way’s First Lady, Sister Joyce’s ministry is dynamic and versatile; from conference and seminar speaker to church counselor, when life’s challenges become overwhelming and guidance is sought, she is always willing to assist. She has a Mother’s Heart for her spiritual children and wants to nurture them into the fullness of God, leading by example. It is her desire that everyone fulfills their destiny and adheres to God’s ordained call in their lives.
