Meet Our Pastors


Allow Us to Introduce Ourselves


“We have found that our calling does not stop within the four walls of the church but our calling is wherever God places us–in our homes, jobs, neighborhoods, and communities.”

“We are Henry and Lena Lazo, the Senior Pastors of West Los Angeles Christian Center since February 2018.  We look forward to serving the people of this church and this community.  We are long time members of both the Westside of Los Angeles and West Los Angeles Christian Center.  We have served as the Associate Pastors here since 2008.  Our desire is to serve the Lord and His people in whatever way He calls us to do.

In addition to our work at church, we have had successful careers in the work world.  Henry worked for 30 years in the Los Angeles Unified School District as a teacher, assistant principal, athletic coach, program coordinator, and operations coordinator.  Lena worked for over 20 years in the legal field as a legal secretary.  We have now retired from our secular jobs to pursue full-time ministry.

We have met at West Los Angeles Christian Center and been happily married for well over 30 years.  We have three adult children, two granddaughters, and one grandson on the way.
