Emilio and Alexandra Frias are the Lead Pastors of Nova Church. They have a passion for building the local church. This passion is shared through messages and the spoken Word of God in a simple, creative and relevant way. They want to see people from all walks of life come to a relationship with Jesus as they seek God, connect with one another and always strive to inspire others with their lives. They believe that no matter what chapter of their story someone might be in, God can do NEW things with and through them. Emilio is a Regent University graduate with an emphasis in Church Ministries.
They served faithfully at Lakewood Church under the leadership of Pastors Joel Osteen and Danilo Montero as the Spanish Youth|Young Adults Pastors before stepping out into the calling of launching Nova Church. Together they have developed leaders, grown ministries and led many to Jesus and are excited for what God will do in this new season. They both grew up in Alief, are High school sweethearts and parents to Liam Emmanuel and Naomi Noelle.
