Meet The Fountain Team
Pastors Reggie and Mary Mercado
Pastors Reggie and Mary serve as the Senior Leaders of The Fountain. Together they planted The Fountain in 2003 and have experienced the continued grace and presence of God since the beginning. Reggie’s passion is to father sons and daughters who know their Kingdom identity and purpose and to equip them to advance the Kingdom in power with signs and wonders following. Pastor Reggie feels called to “father a movement” of revivalists who live “outside the 4 walls” of the church building leading people to a relationship with Jesus and demonstrating His power and character. He intentionally spends time out in the community coaching his sons and many other young people (and their families) seeing this as his “second church”. Pastor Mary is a true spiritual mother to our church family and her desire is to see families transformed by the love of God. As pastor over Women’s Ministries at The Fountain Mary loves to see women come into their destiny, be released in their calling, and be an influence in their communities and beyond. Pastor Reggie graduated from Life Bible College (now Life Pacific College) in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministries and from Azusa Pacific University in 2007 with a Masters in Leadership and Organizational Studies. Mary works part time as a tax preparer, and invests much time with her family. Pastors Reggie and Mary Mercado were high school sweethearts married in 1991 and have been in ministry together since 1990. They served on Pastoral Staff at The Church On The Way in Van Nuys, CA. for 9 years as Sr. High Youth Pastors. They have three sons, Caleb, Aaron, and Matthew.
