Adam Viramontes - Lead Pastor

Adam, and his wife Heather, are both native Albuquerque kids who have fallen deeply in love with this city. They discovered grace in college and have been walking together with Jesus ever since, have been married since 2004, and now have three beautiful children. After gaining life and ministry experience all across the country, including undergraduate studies at Grand Canyon University and seminary studies at Reformed Theological Seminary, the Viramontes family was called to plant Mosaic Church in 2015.

Adam considers himself an amateur chef, works out at a Crossfit Box (so cliché) and enjoys reading books with a frothy IPA in hand.

His hope for Mosaic Church is that it becomes a church where anyone can belong and everyone celebrates the greatest news in the history of the world together!

Rick Smith - Spiritual Formation Pastor

Rick and his wife, Vicki, met while on Young Life staff on the West Coast. They fell head over heels for one another and were married one year later in 1973. That’s right, 1973! They have been gifted with four adult children and eight amazing grandchildren. Rick attended Covenant Seminary then served in a number of churches in the Southwest before joining the staff of InFaith, an American mission to the underserved population of the U.S. Rick and Vicki first visited Mosaic in 2016 right after their move to Albuquerque. They joined a Community Circle the very next week and have been hooked ever since as they watch God transforming lives.

Rick enjoys walking, dancing, biking and goes crazy over a good maple-walnut latte freeze. But the thing that really “makes his day” is enjoying a meal with a friend and sharing with one another what’s going on in their lives. 

He’s passionate about encouraging, caring for and helping people to tap into the power of the gospel. That’s why he’s excited about the future of Mosaic as we partner with God in transforming brokenness into beauty one person at a community.

Krysta Orona - Families Ministry Director

Krysta is an Albuquerque native who married her high school sweetheart, Nathan, in 2008. Together they’ve grown a family of two energetic boys and live in the friendliest neighborhood ever on the West Side. They have been part of Mosaic since 2015 and have loved watching God grow His church.

Krysta loves dancing and singing at the top of her lungs to Carrie Underwood and is still mourning the loss of her motorcycle that she sold to a good home and has dreams of one day owning another (faster) one. Krysta has a passionfor teaching children God’s truth and loves to see their eyes light up when they grasp how much Jesus loves them and how much His sacrifice means.

To Krysta, there is no greater honor than nurturing God’s children and sharing the Gospel with them.

Laneta Morris - Administrative Assistant

Laneta and her husband Jacob share a devotion to loving and spending time with their family which includes two adult children and two joyful grandchildren. Laneta spent nearly 20 years working in the financial industry; her keen insight into the corporate world and exceptional organizational skills have proven invaluable to Mosaic Church.

Laneta enjoys a good cup of tea and mostly-anything chocolate, is a talented chef and baker, and enjoys crafting. While she loves everything her phone or computer can do Laneta prefers her planner, a notepad, and several pens. You can be sure to witness a smile on her face whenever you see her.

Jacob and Laneta have a passion for the Gospel and a deep desire to see it impact our city in meaningful and lasting ways.
