Ed Guerena has been the Pastor of the Live Oak Baptist Church the past 32 years. Ed was tired of his 7 daughters telling him they were afraid to go to school because of harassment and bullying. He took his daughters to Flores Brothers Kenpo Karate in Meiner Oaks and is now owner and instructor of Mr. G's Ojai Valley Kenpo Karate Studio. The bullying stopped. He was named Oak View Citizen of the Year for 2002. He is active as a Board Member of the Oak View Park and Resources Center, Board Chair of the Ojai Valley Neighborhood for Learning, and Sunset School Chair of the School Site Council. Ed has sponsered many community projects including Random Acts of Kindness, Acts of Love Project, Project Based Leadership Training, and the Annual Food Drive to benefit Project Understanding.
