Loren Hicks is the Lead Pastor of Faith Tabernacle Church. On December 04, 2005, he was unanimously elected by the church membership to serve as the 12th pastor in our 90 year history.  Before coming to serve at Faith, he and Linda pastored churches in Texas and Missouri.  Most recently they worked for six years with Chi Alpha Campus Ministries reaching secular university students at UC Santa Barbara and UCLA.
 
Loren holds a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Theology (B.A.) from Ozark Bible College and  a Master of Arts in Religion  (M.A.) from Vanguard University. He and Linda (the woman of his dreams) have been married for 24 years and have three beautiful daughters.
 
Being a team-oriented leader, Loren enjoys working with the great team we have serving at Faith. Being a missionary at heart, he loves serving a church with people from more than 30 different nations and in a city as diverse as Los Angeles.
 
In his "spare time" Loren enjoys traveling, playing golf, trying new restaurants, and spending time with his family.
