Larry Walkemeyer
Author, Speaker

Larry Walkemeyer serves as the lead pastor of Light & Life Christian Fellowship in Long Beach, Califoria. Starting with a handful of committed “white folks,” the church has grown into a large missional, multi-ethnic church in a tough urban neighborhood. A priority on local and global church planting has led to the start of 18 churches nationally and church networks in Ethiopia, Philippines and Indonesia. Walkemeyer is a frequent international speaker to church and business leaders and has co-authored 15 Characteristics of Effective Pastors and  A Good Walk Home and the eBook Led: Going With the Spirit. Azusa Pacific University has recognized Larry with the Centennial Award, naming him one of the most influential graduates during its first 100 years.
