Meet The Church On The Way:

In 1969 Pastor Jack Hayford came to a 43 year old small church in what was the outskirts of Los Angeles  (Van Nuys).   In the 70’s God manifested powerfully and what would become known as The Church On The Way (TCOTW)  started to reach de-churched young adults in LA as they learned to step into Kingdom life in a new way they could understand. Subsequently thousands of believers and leaders were encouraged, equipped and empowered to walk out Kingdom principles and help others encounter Jesus all over the world. In 2014, Pastors Tim and Deborah Clark came to lead the church in  reengaging  that foundation to reach a generation of young adults with Kingdom life in a way they can hear, embrace  and live out, & to raise up disciples & leaders to multiply God’s life all over our city, our region, our nation and our world.

 While methods change over time,  the foundational things have stayed the same. You’ll find that we are passionate about encountering Jesus, we are passionate about the power of the Holy Spirit, and we are passionate about our call to reach Los Angeles, especially an emerging generation who will be equipped to be leaders who are sent to reach the world.
