We believe the highest level of servant leadership in the church resides in the office of eldership. These are men who are qualified according to Biblical standards (1Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9), set apart by the Holy Spirit (Acts 20:28), and called to serve the church through shepherding and oversight. We consider Elders to be the servant leaders of Radiant City Church. Our Elders are to point the congregation to Jesus, who is the head and Chief Shepherd of the church (1Peter 5:4). 


Lead Pastor
Preaching & Vision
Cliff serves as Lead Pastor at Radiant City giving primary leadership to the vision & direction of the church. Cliff loves preaching the Word of God.  He is passionate about disciple-making & church planting: equipping & mobilizing believers to reach the lost & teach the found. As a native South-Floridian originally from Miami, he is devoted to giving his life to win as many people to Christ as possible for the sake of the Gospel.

He is married to Crystal and the father of two; Naomi and Judah León. He enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching movies, sports, and is an avid card player, especially when it comes to spades. 


We believe that office of deacon is of paramount importance in the life of the church. If Elders “serve the church by leading,” then Deacons “lead in the church by serving.” These men and women meet the Biblical qualifications found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13. Our Deacons serve the congregation by taking care of the physical and logistical needs of the church so that the Elders may focus on their primary calling.







The Elders of Radiant City are called to set the direction &  vision for the church. The staff then, similar to the deacons, are called to help practically carry out that vision & direction. The primary calling for staff is to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12). We believe staff personnel are those called to vocational ministry for the equipping of the church or their development for future ministry.
