About Montia Setzler

Dr. Montia Setzler is distinguished as the longest-serving pastor of Magnolia Church. In its 63rd year, June will mark the 20th anniversary celebration of Montia’s tenure as Lead Pastor.

Montia previously served as pastor in Texas and was the Church Growth Director for the CA Southern Baptist Convention. A graduate of Texas A&M, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Fuller Theological Seminary, Montia is a much-admired and respected leader in the local church and in denominational work. He has served as President of the CA Convention and served on the Board of Trustees for Lifeway Christian Resources.

Magnolia Church has flourished under Montia’s leadership as he has led out in the development of leadership and discipleship. He has also given the church a renewed vision to reach the lost through active missions outreach in Riverside and “to the ends of the earth.”

Montia is married to Karen, a Texas native, who also has a distinguished career in the special education field. They have three children, Andrea (Cameron), Adam (Brianna) and Ashley and 4 beautiful grandchildren. J.R. and sister Juliette, and Gavin and sister Evelyn bring Montia and Karen much joy and delight. They all represent a family that is much-loved by the Magnolia Church family.
