Executive Pastor Jerry Ghirardo

Pastor Jerry is our friendly and gregarious pastor pro-tempore as of May 2018. He doesn't shy away from tough subjects because he knows God is right in there with us through it all! Yet, you'll most often find him smiling and offering a great gift of encouragement and a hearty pat on the back. Formerly pastor of aCross Marin Fellowship, he played a vital role in blending what we now are delighted to call the Lighthouse! Pastor Jerry presents sermons with a unique intellectual depth that is portrayed easily and with genuine openness so that everyone can benefit.


Associate Pastor Pat McCornack

Associate Pastor Pat McCornack accepted this position in January of 2019. Formerly Worship Pastor for Lighthouse Christian Church and Open Door Christian Church before that, he will surprise you with his sense of humor - and you'll be equally surprised with his Biblical depth. His position includes stewardship of this beautiful Creekside property the Lord granted us here in Novato which includes our sanctuary, adjacent fellowship hall with full kitchen and children’s room, the beautiful new fenced garden and 24-hour security site.

Lighthouse is well known in the community for its friendly, loving care and outreach and welcomes everyone no matter where they are on their spiritual journey—just starting or long time follower, to come experience God’s love and grow in God’s word. Lighthouse Christian Church meets at 10 am each Sunday with opportunities for children, youth and adults at 1915 Novato Boulevard (near Simmons Lane).
