Leadership Team

Although our church is led by our pastors/elders, we have a growing number of church members serving in various roles of leadership, from worship ministry, small group ministry, altar ministry, tech ministry, and more.  If you are interested in learning about ways you can serve at Light of Life Church, visit our Volunteering page for more information.

Gus was a jazz saxophonist studying at New England Conservatory when the Lord redeemed and radically transformed his life.  Soon afterward he felt called to the ministry, and over the years has served in a wide variety of ministry roles as campus pastor, assistant pastor, and currently as lead pastor of Light of Life Church in Cambridge.  Gus also has an entrepreneurial bent and has been involved in developing several successful music education programs in the Boston area. 

Gus has a passion to live out the gospel and communicate it in and through the local church, helping people encounter the transformative love of Christ.

He and His wife Velleda, who is a professional cellist, have been married since 2000, and they have 2 boys.  They enjoy watching Velleda perform, going to the boys' soccer games, and they just started ballroom dancing classes.

Daniel Cheh, Worship Pastor/Elder

Daniel surrendered his life to Jesus when he was 13 years of age in Malaysia. He grew up in a Buddhist family where “gods” are mysterious & unknowable and the road to enlightenment is about us toiling through an impossible scale system of good/evil deeds. Jesus died on the cross for our sin so that we can have relationship with Him! This truth is Daniel’s life passion to share. 

He graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor’s in Contemporary Writing & Production. He has since been in full-time ministry, both in Boston and California for over 16 years. 

Daniel now worship pastors at Light of Life Church. He is a passionate foodie and also enjoys working out, movies, gadgets & technology. 

Rachel Wilson, Administrator, Children's Ministry Coordinator

Rachel is a Boston-transplant, but she considers the Boston area her home. After moving here in her early twenties, she decided the city was much more her speed than her rural hometown in upstate New York. At 15, she felt disorganized but knew that her life would combine her love of kids, travel, music, and organization. A little less than two decades later, she was honored to live as a missionary in Mozambique, Africa for three and a half years, leaving part of her heart with some of the children at the center where she served. In her spare time, she enjoys serving others, sewing dresses for orphans, and well, laughing, as much as humanly possible.  

Nadia Mariano, Women's Ministry Coordinator

Nadia is a Boston girl, through and through. She comes from a large, local Italian family, and she is passionate about seeing others enjoy their best quality of life. Her job as an occupational therapist fits her dream like a hand in a glove. She loves connecting with the underprivileged and serving, in almost any capacity. Nadia likes hiking, spending time with her family, and long walks on the beach.
