Mingo Palacios

Pastor / Pioneer / Disruption Advocate

Mingo’s art is propelling people forward. He thrives most when pastoring leaders, connecting churches, and coaching next generation ministries through the depths of their one-of-a-kind efforts. He is invested in several future thinking, socially good projects including pioneering microsites – an initiative that helps churches plant popup versions of themselves that meet people right where they are.

He co-founded the Moniker Group, a company that features co-working spaces, a busy coffee shop, retail space, and bar. Mingo served for two years as the Pastor of Culture and Evangelism for Saddleback Church within Purpose Driven Ministries.

He currently pastors Torrey Pines Church, and continues to be a voice within the Purpose Driven community, helping leaders navigate vision, implement new ministry concepts, and champion the local church everywhere.

Mingo hosts the Purpose Driven Podcast and speaks throughout the year about the relentless love of Jesus, and the hope of the Gospel through the local church. Currently, he and his family live in San Diego CA. He and Fallon have been married for over 10 years and have 2 boys, #BraveryP, and #NicoMays.
