Ken and Marcy Lawson
My name is Ken Lawson and my wife is Marcy Lawson. I am a licensed pastor through the Church of the Nazarene (Hanford Nazarene). My wife and I both work full time at local school districts, as well. Previous to this, I served 10 years in the Marine Corps. Several years after getting out of the service, I felt God's call to become a pastor. I received my Ministerial License in 2008 and have continued my studies toward ordination since then. My wife and I have been married for 27 years, and we have two daughters.
Communities4Christ is a service-orientated community outreach ministry, with a primary focus on serving families in disadvantaged areas. Our mission is to go and plant Jesus in the community. This happens through prayer, through worship, through fellowship, through testimony, through bible studies and through children's programs within the community.
We currently serve in the community room at Kings Garden Apartments. Starting in February we will have our Adult Fellowship on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. and our Children's Program, the "ARK Adventure" (Actively Reaching Kids) will start on Saturdays running from 3:00-5:00 p.m.
If you are looking for a short or long term mission project right in your own back yard, please contact us on how you would like to help. We need prayer warriors, musicians, mentors and more. Let us put your gifts to work while we win souls to Christ!
