Lucero Solis is on the Mosaic Leadership Team. From Lucero: I graduated from Cornerstone University in 2019 and have been teaching Math and Science at the Potter’s House High School since then. Growing up as a pastor’s kid in Mexico, the church was my life. I witnessed firsthand the impact that true and intentional relationships in the church can have in the greater community of a city. Since moving to the United States at the age of 14, I have come to see a need for multi-ethnic church communities that focus on racial reconciliation and that seek transformation. Over the last five years, I have had the opportunity to serve as a youth group leader as well as small group leader. I love to spend time in community with people and be a part of each other’s life journeys. Lately, I have found a lot of peace and strength in spending time in nature exploring the Creator side of God. I have also loved building relationships with students and adults that share different experiences than mine. It is great to see the ways that God has worked in each of our lives and how He is molding us to continue building His kingdom here.

He enjoys running, board games, and hanging out with his wife Jen and their three daughters.

Victoria Gibbs is Mosaic’s Director of Christian Antiracism (click here to read our ebook on Christian Antiracism) and serves on the Leadership Team. From Victoria: I began asking God about my peculiar journey involving issues of “race” many years ago as I became the first African American to graduate from an all-white junior high school in 1965. I then went on to be the second African American to graduate from an all-white Christian high school in 1970. I went on to Michigan State and joined the Black Greek letter organization Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and became the chapter president. I needed to see another side so I left Michigan and moved to Los Angeles, where I married a man from Compton, CA, which at that point was predominantly Black.

I moved back to Grand Rapids and began to work for the Christian Reformed Church, first as a bridge to the African American community as Community Outreach Worker and then for the denominational headquarters as their AA Small group ministry developer (That’s what my business card said). While I worked for the denomination, I was introduced to an analysis that was to assist the denomination in becoming anti-racist. This was in 1999. I have since been on a journey to understand racism. In light of my many firsts e.g. one of the first women to become an elder and delegate to synod and chair of council, I’ve been given some very unique opportunities to study institutional racism.

My call from God is clear at this point of my journey. I take seriously this call and want to share my insights with whomever he sends my way. Currently I am the lead coach for CORE, Communities Organizing for Racial Equity. I am also a facilitator in the workshops. I am one of the founding members of this organization, formerly named CORR (Congregations Organizing for Racial Reconciliation), founded in 2003. 

I have 5 children, 13 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild.

I love working with my plants and watching them grow. I am a pretty good photographer and have quite a collection of pictures of mushrooms!
