Features of our Church
We have a nationally known and respected pastor who gives inspiring sermons every Sunday.
H. B. LONDON, JR.
H. B. London, Jr. is currently a Pastor of Friendship Church in Sun City Palm Desert, California. Prior to this he was Vice President of Church and Clergy Outreach for Focus on the Family, a Colorado Springs based ministry whose primary reason for existence is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
A fourth generation minister, Rev. London was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is a graduate of Pasadena College (now called Point Loma Nazarene University) and Nazarene Theological Seminary. Point Loma University has conferred on H.B. the Doctor of Divinity degree, and in 2007 the Distinguished Service Award.
Rev. London pastored for 31 years. He hosted a daily radio program for 20 years and had a weekly television program. H.B.’s assignment as Vice President of Church and Clergy Outreach was to serve as liaison to pastors and churches — a kind of “pastor to pastors.” He communicated with thousands of pastors and church leaders each week through “The Pastor’s Weekly Briefing” (an electronic newsletter) and produced a bi-monthly “Pastor to Pastor” audio series. While at Focus in 1991, H.B. directed the development of ministries to pastors and their spouses, and gave oversight to ministries affecting physicians, youth culture, the inner city, missionaries, chaplains and basketball camps for the children of single parents in many cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. H.B. writes a weekly blog that can be accessed at www.hblondon.org
He has authored or co-authored the books: PAUSE, RECHARGE REFRESH (Tyndale—Sept. 2009 release), PASTORS AT RISK (Victor Books), THE HEART OF A GREAT PASTOR (Regal Books), MARRIED TO A PASTOR’S WIFE (Victor Books), YOUR PASTOR IS AN ENDANGERED SPECIES (Victor Books), IT TAKES A CHURCH WITHIN A VILLAGE (Thomas Nelson), THEY CALL ME PASTOR (Regal Books) BECOMING YOUR FAVORITE CHURCH (Regal Books), PASTORS AT GREATER RISK (Regal Books), FOR KIDS’ SAKE – Winning the Tug-of-War for Future Generations (Regal Books); and THE SHEPHERD’S COVENANT FOR PASTORS (Regal Books). Two other books by H.B. that have received wide distribution are: REFRESH, RENEW, REVIVE (Focus on the Family Book Publishing) and THE MINISTER’S LITTLE DEVOTIONAL BOOK (Honor Books).
