Our teachers

While our speaking team shares the teaching load on Sunday mornings, Pastor Joe Lavagnino does most of the speaking. He helped plant LVCC, and has served as Lead Pastor since 1997. Pastor Joe was raised in Clovis, and he and his wife Pam have been married since 1985. They have two adult children, Cori and Jordan, and three amazing grandsons. Pastor Joe holds a Master of Divinity from Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary (Fresno Pacific), and he has 30+ years of pastoral experience.
