The Navy brought Lanny and Patti Clark to southern Maryland in 1977. Lanny was an Active Duty Naval Flight Officer, but a tangible encounter with Jesus Christ altered his path and led him into ministry. In 1981, he became the pastor of Our Father’s House (then known as Patuxent River Assembly of God).

Pastor Lanny’s ministry emphasizes honoring the activity of the Holy Spirit. Through God’s grace, Pastor Lanny builds up the local body of Christ and believers around the world through international ministry. He helps others to understand the gospel of the King and His kingdom, empowers others in their gifts of service, and initiates others into the prophetic and healing ministry. He delights in seeing his congregants mature and step into their God-given destinies.

Pastor Lanny serves on the leadership team of the Mid-Atlantic Leadership Conference.

Pastor Lanny and his wife, Patti, married in 1970. They have three grown sons and an adorable grandson. Amid pastoring, traveling, and studying, Pastor Lanny enjoys cracking jokes, fishing, and spending time with people. He and Patti reside in beautiful southern Maryland.
