CALIFORNIA-NEVADA-HAWAII DISTRICT Matt Molinari Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ -Matthew 22:37-39 GET CONNECTED


I am honored to serve as LCEF District Vice President for the California Nevada Hawaii District. As a Director of Christian Education for 19 years, I have first-hand experience with our ever-changing mission field. It is my desire to be a consistent ministry resource for churches and schools in our district, as they dream big and envision the ways God is calling them to proclaim the Gospel in these challenging and exciting times!

  • As a DCE, (Concordia Irvine ’04) I’ve had the opportunity to serve in a wide variety of ministries, including youth & families, worship & outreach, and digital communications & marketing.
  • My wife Lauren and I have six kids (ranging from ages 2-15) which requires a personal “church van” to transport the whole family.
  • Lauren and I are both Northern California natives, born and raised in the Sacramento area. We enjoy wine tasting, boating, and our newest family homesteading ventures: gardening and raising chickens.

Thank you for your personal commitment to Kingdom growth through the ministry of LCEF. God is at work. Exciting things are ahead!

Since 1978, Lutheran Church Extension Fund has been The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod based financial partner to help make the Gospel of Christ heard.

You can feel good partnering with LCEF because we share your Lutheran beliefs. We also share your love for the Church. Always have. Always will.
