Pastor Dwight Radcliff is a pastor/teacher at his core. He leads The Message Center, a multi-cultural church in Gardena, CA (planted 12 years ago), and teaches at Azusa Pacific University and Vanguard University. He has an uncanny way of reaching those deemed “unreachable” and transforming the historical accounts of the Bible into relevant and tangible concepts.
Pastor Radcliff holds a B.A. in Biblical Studies (Long Beach Bible College), and M.Div. with an emphasis in Multi-Cultural Ministry (Fuller Theological Seminary). He is a Ph.D. candidate at Fuller Seminary, and is writing his dissertation on culture and preaching. He is also a Parish Pulpit Fellow that has studied in Rome and Oxford. He has extensive ministry experience in the United States and mission experience in South America. Pastor Radcliff is also a former Deputy Sheriff and Chaplain. Additionally, Pastor Radcliff mentors church planters and pastors locally and nationally.
Dwight's first ministry, however, is to his family. He and his wife, DeShun have been married for over 20 years, and they have two amazing daughters.
