David Liesenfelt, Senior Pastor

David has been Pastor of Rock Valley Christian Church since its founding in 2005. In addition to serving as Pastor, he has worked for a national consulting corporation since 1989, where he currently serves as President.  After speaking as an itinerant teacher, preacher and radio host for many years, David was led to serve the church of God in the Temecula Valley with the help of his wife, Stephanie, and friends, Scott and Carolyn Scharpen.  His vision was to teach and disciple those God is calling to be believers in Jesus Christ, the same vision that continues at Rock Valley today.  More than anything, he enjoys personally helping and encouraging others in their walk with Christ.  David and Stephanie have been happily married since 1991 and have three children.
