Kirstyn-Edited

Kirstyn Cubangbang:

Department:

Worship & Creative Art Director

ABOUT:

Kirstyn Cubangbang is a native of Stockton, Ca and is a graduate of Innovation School of Transformation. She is an ordained minister under Innovation Ministerial Network. Since she was a young child, she loved to sing and play piano. She grew up surrounded by music (especially worship music) and eventually realized that this was to play a huge part of her life. A defining moment of her life was when she was asked to lead worship at a home group. While leading, the presence of God fell at that meeting in such a powerful way which left a mark that forever changed the course of her life. Kirstyn desires to see people encounter God’s presence, to create a culture where the goodness of God is on display and that sons and daughter will see themselves through the eyes and lens of the Father. Kirstyn continues to lead worship at Innovation (as well as nationally and internationally) and is empowering a community of worshippers and leaders to release the kingdom of heaven. She believes that her life invokes courage to go after your purpose, to walk in freedom, and to establish a legacy that will last for generations to come.

MEDIA & SOCIAL MEDIA MANGEMENT DIRECTOR

ABOUT:

Larnelle was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA. As a boy, he watched countless Benny Hinn church services which ignited the desire to encounter God’s presence.

Through this encounter, he was introduced to Innovation School of Transformation by his cousin Kristyn Kirstyn Cubangbang. As this intense hunger for God increased in Larnelle, it gave birth to an intense desire to experience more of God’s presence which then led him to leave everything he knew and to move to Stockton, CA to attend Innovation School of Transformation. Larnelle graduated Innovation School of Transformation in 2016 and is a licensed minister under Innovation Ministerial Network. Larnelle has a genuine, kind and compassionate heart for people and desires for every single person to experience the love of the Father God.
