About Bishop L. W. Francisco III, D. Min

Pastor/Teacher to the body of Christ with a prophetic voice to today's generation

Bishop L.W. Francisco III is the senior pastor of Calvary Community Church, and presiding bishop of Calvary Covenant Ministries Inc., an organization which provides spiritual oversight and counsel, as well as ministerial and administrative support to churches throughout the United States and abroad.

In October of 1990, after much counsel with his spiritual father, Bishop L.W. Francisco II, Francisco entered full-time ministry along with his wife Natalie as Senior Pastors, and the ministry grew rapidly under their leadership. Calvary Community began to enter into several ministries: radio, television, print media and the formation of Calvary Christian Academy, a pre-school and elementary school that seeks to Nurture, Educate and Empower Our Youth to be Successful World Changers.

Francisco has not only been called by God to pastor the local church, but to also help other pastors and leaders reach their full potential in Christ. He has an avid passion to see the body of Christ educated, liberated and empowered to fulfill the Kingdom mandate.

Francisco earned a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry from International Bible College & Seminary in Independence, MO., and a Master of Arts as well as a Doctorate of Ministry from Carolina University of Theology.

Francisco’s teaching ministry, The Voice of Restoration, can be heard on several radio stations locally, as well as viewed on the internet. He is the author of
several books, including the latest title, The 21st Century Man, How to
Succeed in Changing Times (released in August 2009 by St. Paul Press).

Bishop L.W. III and Pastor Natalie are the parents of three beautiful daughters: Nicole, Lesley and Lauren.
