Pastor Bernie (Senior Pastor)

It has been my joy to pastor the Lompoc Foursquare Church since my wife Debbie and I arrived here, September of 1986, with our two children, Jamie and Brian (now adults).

We had dreams of enhancing an already wonderful church and seeing it grow in love towards God, in service to our community, and in relationship to one another. This dream has and continues to become reality as we have seen amazing growth in all areas and the adding of new people, family and friends as well as facilities to our campus. Seeing lives transformed by God has been a real thrill for me ( it never gets old). We have also been able to see people released to use their talent and gifts as a part of our Doing Church as a Team. 

Along with serving this great church, I have the honor of serving as Chaplain for the Lompoc Police and Fire Departments I've also had the honor of being a Civic Leader for the Air Education Training Command of the Air Force representing Vandenberg, and have been an honorary commander at various times. And for those who may wonder, Yes! I am so grateful to be the guy who got his car Overhauled by the amazing and generous Chip Foose and his A-Team (all great people) a show that was featured on Discovery and Velocity Channels. 

If you are thinking of visiting our church or do not have a church you call home, we invite you to our home - you can even call ahead and let us know you are coming and someone will greet you and show you around. Our heart is to provide a warm welcome with no pressure. With three services to choose from (8, 9:15 or 10:45) and many opportunities to grow, I am sure LFC has something for you. We also feature great ministries for children, youth, and even college-age students. 

I am also honored to currently serve as the honorary commander of the 30 Security Forces Unit at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
