The Rev. Lamont Leonard has been named new senior pastor of West Adams Foursquare Church, also known as New Life Christian Center. He succeeds Bishop Clarence McClendon, who withdrew his affiliation from the local church’s denomination, the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. A Los Angeles native, Leonard most recently led New Beginnings Fellowship in San Jose and was instrumental in uniting his predominantly African American congregation with Pastor Al Soto’s Family Life Center Foursquare Church in San Jose.
