Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults


Pastor Tania Acuna joined our community in July 2020. She is a recent graduate of the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, where she completed a Master of Divinity. As a California native, she is thrilled to be back in the warmth and beauty of Southern California. Tania is married to Philip Duclos, an immigration and criminal defense attorney, and they recently added a (fur) baby to their family, Jude St. Francis, an apricot-colored Goldendoodle who brings immense joy to their lives. Tania believes that, in an ever-changing society plagued with political tensions, the need for environmental stewardship, and rapid technological innovations, the church is most successful when it embraces change while encouraging spiritual wellness and healthy life rhythms. She is inspired and guided in her ministry by Micah 6:8, “He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Tania’s primary objective in ministry is to encourage and demonstrate what it looks like to walk humbly, love kindness, and do justice in both our private and communal lives, reintroducing wonder into the world. Tania and Philip love the outdoors and are excited to cultivate community in the sanctuary, around the table, and out in nature.
