,
Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults

Pastor Tania Acuna joined our community as the Youth & Young Adult Pastor and the LNJA Chaplain in July 2020. She was born and raised in Southern California and attended La Sierra University for college and the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University for graduate school. Tania is married to Philip Duclos, an attorney who specializes in complex litigation. They are parents to one furbaby, 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.
