Meet Our Pastors

Mike McClenahan - Senior Pastor

I came to Solana Beach Presbyterian Church in February 2003 to serve as senior pastor. I was ordained in 1990 to my first and only other call as associate pastor working with students and families in northern California. Over the years God has shaped my heart for the church to be a place of transformation that makes a tangible difference in the world: building houses in Mexico, serving our community, growing in small groups, welcoming the stranger, gathering the whole family in worship, or knowing and using our gifts. I was born in Glendale, California, graduated from UCLA (BA Spanish) and earned my masters and doctorate from Fuller Seminary. Amy and I were married in 1985 and have partnered together in ministry, led groups to Biblical sites and walked the Camino in Spain. We have two grown and married sons, Brendan and Connor, and between them have our seven grandchildren. I love to cook, create and enjoy art, travel, and take walk long walks.
