Lance Ralston – Lead & Teaching Pastor

Lance Ralston – Lead & Teaching Pastor

Lance Ralston is the founding pastor of Calvary Chapel of Oxnard, which began in the fall of 1982 in Port Hueneme.  Since that time, the church has met in several locations as it has grown over the years. We moved to our present facility on Eastman Avenue in the fall of 1998. Lance and Lynn have been married since 1980, with three children and three grandchildren.

Lance’s method of teaching in expository and follows the usual Calvary Chapel pattern of going systematically through the Bible, alternating between the Old and New Testaments.  Being a student of history, Lance regularly brings the historical backdrop of the text to light.  This provides a solid foundation for understanding how the truth of God’s Word is relevant for us today. Lance has taught through the entire Bible three times and is now working his way through it with the people of Calvary Oxnard a fourth time.

Lance is the author of one book, drawn from a sermon series he did on marriage – Marriage: As It Was meant To Be
