We’re a community called to passionately worship God, effectively make and multiply disciples, and love people to Jesus, all while enjoying real connection to one another. We meet as a congregation in Los Angeles, in the neighborhood of Van Nuys, which is one of the most ethnically diverse places on the planet. We’re a multicultural, multigenerational church that’s built on the foundation of Worship, the Word (The Bible), Prayer, and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Come by when we’re gathering, we’d love to get to know you!
In February 2014 Deborah and I were appointed as the Senior Pastors at The Church On The Way, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this church family! Here we’ve discovered a community of people who are passionate in worship, solid in the Word, fervent in prayer, and full of the Holy Spirit—in short, we get to lead a church that is focused on Jesus. Our heart as pastors is to equip the body to engage our world with the love of God, and to joyfully embrace and share the full life that He offers to all.
About us: We love Jesus, we love our church, we love Los Angeles, and we love our family: Caleb, Johnny and Abbi keep us laughing, and keep us busy!
If you’re planning to join us for a service, we gather on Sunday mornings at 9 & 11am and Wednesday evenings at 7pm, as well as in small groups throughout the week. You’ll want to know that our clothing style is flexible (people wear everything from jeans to suits), our worship music is relatable, and we have age appropriate classes to help your kids and teenagers encounter Jesus. Our identity is built on the foundation of worship, the Bible, prayer, and the ministry of the Holy Spirit, and we’re part of the Foursquare family of churches. For more information about what we believe, see our Statement of Faith.
Mark your calendars and purchase your tickets for our annual Church Family Christmas Dinners on Tuesday, December 15 or Wednesday, December 16, 6:30-8:30pm.

What can the guy in the big red hat, a hilarious angel and the grumpy Grinch teach us about making a joyful noise? You won't want to miss our Kids On The Way original Christmas musical, "The Noise.” With music that's sure to have you singing along and a great message for all ages, "The Noise" will be presented Sunday, December 13, at the 9 & 11am services.
Join us in The Living Room as we wrap the presents you have donated for the Hazeltine Giving Tree project. We’ll enjoy a Christmas movie, goodies, and great fellowship. Take a break from the busyness of the season and enjoy this special night.
