Dwight Perry

Pastor Dwight Perry and his wife Diana were welcomed to Lucerne Community Church in March of 2017.  Both Pastor and his wife were raised in a church by their believing parents. Both made confessions of faith and have been active members of the church most of their adult lives.  Pastor Dwight and Diana have served churches on the west coast for over 30 years.  Dwight has served as an education superintendant, an Evangelist, an Elder and a Pastor. Following their retirement in 2015, Pastor Dwight felt called to return to the ministry and was united by the Lord with the Lucerne Community Church.

Dwight received a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies, a Masters of Divinity Degree, and a Ph.D. in Church History.  The Perry’s have one son and five grandchildren.  Dwight and Diana enjoy entertaining, reading, and being with friends and family.

Dwight’s favorite passage of scripture is found in Proverbs 3:5, 6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

Diana prefers Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”


Elder Board

Henry Bethel – Chairman

I started going to church at the age of four with my grandmother. At the age of fifteen, I asked Jesus into my heart. I have been attending church ever sense. Praise the Lord!

I started attending Lakeshore Baptist Church in 1979 before the church name changed to Lucerne Community Church. I have held many positions in the church: usher, treasurer, trustee, Elder, gardener, and Kid’s Club helper.

I was saved at the age of 7 at a summer Bible camp. My life became chaotic and confusing for many years until my marriage failed and knocked me down completely. Without a Bible in my possession and asking the Lord for His complete guidance, I went back to church. At the end of that first service, a total stranger came up to me and gave me a brand new men’s devotional Bible. Life has not been perfect, but my life was turned around at that time.

I have been a part of Lucerne Community Church since 2005. It has been my privilege to serve as both a volunteer maintenance man, and now I am getting paid for the same work. I enjoy being a part of the Music Team and recently was asked to serve on the Board of Elders.

I began giving my life to the Lord Jesus Christ in February 1989 after I had lost everything and had no way to look but up. I joined our church, which was Lakeshore Baptist church at the time, in the beginning of 1990. I have served our Lord as Monitor, Chairman of the Elder Board, Secretary of the Elder Board, and as a Trustee. I am honored to serve as the Treasurer, and member of the Elder Board. I met my wife, Becky, at our church and was married on 12 November 2006 at Lucerne Community Church.

In 1989, Kathy Jones and Pastor Rocky led me to the Lord. My husband and I were married for 42 years when he passed in 2003. In 2005, I married Claude. I had been friends with him and his family for years, and after his wife passed in 2004, we came together. We both love the Lord. I have been serving at Lucerne Community Church as Prayer Coordinator since 2014.
