Rev. Les Malakian

Parish Pastor


A Little About Me:

I married my wonderful wife, Leslie, 46 years ago; and yes I am Les, and my wife's name is Leslie!  What are the odds?  Leslie and I have two adult children with families of their own, plus four grandchildren.


attended Fresno State College and graduated with a B.S. in Business and Psychology in 1963. I attended a fifth year while working on a Masters before being called into the professional ministry.  I left Fresno to attend Princeton Theological Seminary, and graduated in 1971 with a Master's in Divinity.


If I'm not at church, you can find me doing anything outdoors, or going fast! I'm a car and race enthusiast, and even am Chaplain for Racers for Christ.


How Long Have You Worked at Trinity?

16 years, I think.  I honestly lost count...


Favorite Drink at Starbucks?

Not sure what you young bucks call it, but I like coffee and chocolate mixed together, either hot or cold.


Life Verse:

Matthew 6:33 -- "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."


Something I Love About Trinity?

The generosity of the congregation whenever a need arises!
