Lanny Clark - Lead Pastor
The Navy brought Lanny Clark to southern Maryland many years before Target and Walmart came to town. Lanny was an Active Duty Naval Flight Officer, but a tangible encounter with Jesus Christ altered his path and led him into ministry. In 1981, he became Pastor of Our Father’s House (then the Patuxent River Assembly of God).
Pastor Lanny’s ministry emphasizes honoring the activity of the Holy Spirit. Through God’s grace, Pastor Lanny builds up the local body of Christ and believers around the world through international ministry. He helps others to understand the gospel of the King and His kingdom, empowers others in their gifts of service, and initiates others into the prophetic and healing ministry. He delights in seeing his congregants mature and step into their God-given destinies.
Pastor Lanny serves on the leadership team of the Mid-Atlantic Leadership Conference. He received his Master’s degree in Ministerial Leadership from Southeastern University. He is now engaged in doctoral studies in leadership.
Pastor Lanny and his wife, Patti, married in 1970. They have three grown sons and an adorable grandson. Amid pastoring, traveling, and studying, Pastor Lanny enjoys cracking jokes and going to lunch with friends. He and Patti reside in beautiful southern Maryland.
