Laura Arciniega is the Director of Family Ministries and Discipleship at the Mission Viejo campus. She and her husband Dominic Zappia are from Southern California, but they took a ten-year sojourn through Alabama, Wisconsin, and New Jersey. Along the way, their son Joseph was born.
Laura holds B.A. in Christian Studies from California Baptist University and a Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School, Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. Her favorite Bible verse is what Jesus tells his disciples after they see him walking on the Sea of Galilee: “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid” (Mark 6:50).
