    Children's ministry

  • Larry Jimenez

    Associate Pastor

    Spanish Lang. Ministry

    Larry Jimenez studied Communications at George Mason University, and earned a Master in Theological Studies at John Leland Center for Theological Studies. 2006 was a significant year for Larry because it is the year in which he became a pastor for the first time; and also because it is the year he married his best friend, Kathy. Larry and Kathy are proud parents of Jeremy Joel.  Larry is a bi-Vocational pastor, and he can be found ‘playing’ behind the master control board at WAVA 105.1FM when he is not ministering at church. These are his two greatest passions in life. Larry became the Asssociate Pastor for Spanish Language Ministries at Chancellor in 2014.
