It is my privilege to currently serve you as the Campus Pastor at Lutheran Church of the Cross – Aliso Viejo and Aliso Viejo Christian School! Having been a member of LCC since 1994, it’s been a joy to watch AVCS take root from Day 1 and really flourish over her first 20 years. The students, parents, faculty and staff bring a Christ-centered atmosphere to everything that happens here on campus!

My path to my current position as Campus Pastor has been quite an adventure. I’m a Southern California native who studied Business Administration at Cal State Fullerton and Business Management at Azusa Pacific University while pursuing a career in broadcasting – which led me into broadcast ministry, serving with organizations including Dr. James Dobson’s FamilyTalk and HomeWord with Jim Burns. My call to the pulpit began a decade ago and culminated with my graduation from Niagara Lutheran Theological Institute and my ordination to serve here at LCC.

I am blessed to be the father of two daughters (one of whom, Mrs. Maka, serves as instrumental music teacher here at AVCS), one son, two sons-in-law and an amazing grandson. I have many “life verses” which have guided me through my walk of faith; the one that resonates most with me now is John 13:34-35 when Jesus said: “A new commandment I give you – love one another. . . . Everyone will know that you are My Disciples if you love one another.” Words of wisdom indeed!

God’s richest blessings to you and yours as you continue to grow in your relationship with Him!

In Christ,

Pastor Roger Marsh
