Tara Crews

Co-Founder

Tara has been in full-time ministry for the past 30 years.  For the past 10 years, Tara and Jim have served as the leaders of a non-denominational church in Las Vegas called Valley Bible Fellowship Of Las Vegas. Under their leadership, the church experienced incredible growth and became one of the largest churches in Las Vegas. Through a series of confirmations over this past year, it became clear to them that God was wanting to take their God-given vision and passion for God’s kingdom and begin a new church campus in the Conejo Valley.
Jim and Tara have three children: Kylee (25 years old), McKenzee (23 years old), and Josiah (21 years old). As a family, they love hanging out with Mickey Mouse and his crew at Disneyland.

Phil Robillard

Associate Pastor

Phil is the “Seasoned Pastor,” at Atmosphere Church (he's pretty sure that means he's getting old). He became a follower of Christ in 1973 during the Jesus people movement.  He was ordained in 1983 and Pastored Vineyard Community Church in Thousand Oaks for 24 years. He and his wife, Tana, have had the opportunity to be involved with five different church plants over the years, as well as various other kingdom related things. They have three sons, one grandson and two beautiful daughter-in-law‘s. What does he do for fun? Phil loves music, playing guitar and fiddling around with a few other things once in a while. He enjoys reading (especially fiction), theology, and various aspects of philosophy. He’d love to be there for you if there’s ever anything he can assist you with.
