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 new Senior Pastors of West Los Angeles Christian Center as of 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 church-based ministries, Henry has worked for 30 years (recently retired to pursue full time ministry) in the Los Angeles Unified High School District in various roles and at various locations as a teacher, assistant principal, athletic coach, program coordinator, and operations coordinator.  Lena has recently retired from the legal field after working for over 20 years so that she could pursue fulltime ministry.

Henry and Lena have been married for 31 years and have been together for 36 years (they met at WLACC).  They have three adult children and two granddaughters.
