Lisa Pacheco began serving here at Southern California Seminary the summer of 2019. She is now Director of Student Services and assistant to the Provost/CAO.  Prior to joining SCS, Lisa served at Calvary Chapel Oceanside as the Women’s Ministry Director for over 12 years. Ministry has always been a part of her life and she enjoys the challenges and blessings of equipping others for leadership both in the community and their churches. Lisa is very enthusiastic about SCS and has expressed great joy as she ministers alongside of faith-filled people who love kingdom work.

She is a native to California and currently residing in beautiful Vista known as the “climatic wonderland” a perfect 76 degrees most days of the year. She also enjoys a good bike ride and just tinkering around with succulents (thanks to her Mam-maw).  Married and raised four children, all adults now and gratefully living locally. One of the many joys of Lisa’s life is being a “GmaMimi” and has six grand-littles; four girls and two boys. Together they spend hours painting, exploring, making giant bubbles and just giggling over silly stories.

She enjoys reading, writing, and speaking for women’s groups. Other great hobbies include quilting, gardening and baking. As much as she loves people, she also enjoys quiet time too. She says, “there is nothing like reading a novel for pure pleasure and no deadlines!”
