The Zapara’s recently celebrated 21 years of marriage and enjoy a full family life with their three teen age kids. Joedy a local native, and Kendra who moved here in Junior High, have lived all over the greater Sacramento area growing up. As the family grew and the kids were getting ready to go to school, they settled into the Sacramento suburb of Natomas, where they’ve now lived for 15 years. Both have been involved in local Vineyard churches their whole lives and have been serving and leading since high school in areas of worship, youth, small groups, counseling, and wherever else needed. Joedy was ordained as a minister in 2000 and Kendra in 2015. They also help with leadership within the greater Vineyard movement as Area Overseers for Northern California, Southern Oregon, and Northern Nevada. In addition to pastoring, Joedy runs a residential remodeling company called JAZ Developments.
