David Menard is the lead pastor of The Mission Church. The Mission Church was launched from a small, home group Bible study. The lives of the people in this small group had been radically impacted by the gospel of Jesus. This amazing group continued to invite and bring more people to this home Bible study. Soon it was evident that Jesus was building a church.

The Lord used 
David’s previous 17 years of full-time pastoral ministry experience to lead the team to plant a new church. In September of 2011, The Mission Church moved into an elementary school in Cardiff CA. The Lord continued to build and bless this new ministry with sweet fellowship, healthy growth, and a growing team of gifted leaders who are devoted to serving Jesus and loving people.  
In May 2018, The Mission Church moved into its own beautiful facility in downtown Carlsbad. Today, The Mission Church is a young, healthy, thriving church that continues to grow and bear good fruit as Jesus transforms lives by His grace and for His glory.     
Pastor David loves seeing people’s lives transformed by the power of Jesus Christ and the truth of God’s Word. David’s passion to equip people to embrace the upward call of Jesus can be heard in his solid Bible teaching.  His encouraging messages challenge everyone to live their life “on a mission,” serving Jesus daily in their own “mission fields” at home, school, work, and in their neighborhoods.  David believes that Jesus has called us all to a life of great purpose and that embracing that calling is the most rewarding way to live.
David has been married to his beautiful wife, Lisa, for over 35 years. Together they have 4 adult children: Jordan, Ryan, Nathan, and Mariah. The Menard’s love family time together!
The entire Menard family is actively involved in the church: Lisa teaches in Women’s Ministry and serves in Children’s ministry. Jordan serves behind the scenes as a volunteer in media and online development. Ryan serves as volunteer on the worship team, as a Men’s Leader, and as a Mission Group Leader.  Mariah actively serves Jesus as a volunteer leader in the Young Adults ministry, in Media, and in the Children’s Ministry.  Nathan serves as a volunteer on the worship team.
