Our Pastor

Rev. Jerrell Walls

Rev. Jerrell Walls founded Christ Chapel of the Valley in 1992. He has been in ministry since age 8. Raised in North Texas by parents who themselves are long-time Pastors, Pastor Jerrell was given a profound gift of teaching and ministry.

While Pastor Jerrell’s foundation was based on his ministry and administrative work with the Foursquare Church, he felt a tugging in his heart that significant numbers of people were not receiving the Good News of Christ’s love and redemption, especially the LGBT community. In the early 1990s, he joined Christ Chapel in Long Beach, a predominately gay and lesbian congregation founded by Pastor Michael Cole. As this congregation grew, he started to lead one of its Bible study groups up in the San Fernando Valley. This group grew by leaps and bounds, and eventually became Christ Chapel of the Valley–a church which he has pastored from the very beginning.

A straightforward man who loves and nurtures his flock, Pastor Jerrell accepts you as you are
