About Us

We’re a church that’s been around since 1926. A lot has changed since then, but the foundational things have stayed the same. Here’s a little bit about who we are, how we lead, and where you can find us on a Sunday morning. You’ll find that we are passionate about helping others Encounter Jesus, we are passionate about the power of the Holy Spirit, and we are passionate about our call to reach Los Angeles.

A Word From Our Lead Pastor Team

Meet Our Lead Pastors

Tim & Deborah Clark

Tim and Deborah Clark have served as the Lead Pastors of The Church On The Way since February 2014. Their driving passion is to see people Encounter Jesus. Out of that, they believe we will see revival and harvest across Los Angeles and beyond. They also feel called by God to make and send disciples for Jesus in a rising generation. Tim and Deborah have served in a variety of ministry positions, including District Supervisor for the Foursquare Denomination, Dean of Students at Life Pacific College, and as youth pastors, pastors and church planters. They have three kids and enjoy exploring Los Angeles with them.

Doug & Christa Andersen

The Andersen's have a long history with The Church On The Way. Christa was raised here from a little girl, and Doug began to attend after High School. They met here, were married here, began their pastoral ministry here, and the early years of their three children’s lives were shaped here as well. Each of them held a variety of roles at TCOTW in the past, Doug having been on staff for over 20 years and serving the last several of those as Executive Pastor. In 2007 they planted a daughter church in the Santa Clarita Valley and pastored that thriving congregation for 15 years before returning to TCOTW in the summer of 2022. Both of them share a deep desire to see people encounter Jesus—when that happens lives are changed. For the last decade Doug has served on the Board of Directors of our denomination. They are thrilled to step into this new opportunity to be part of the Lead Pastor team at the very place where their life in ministry began.
