Immediate Past Supervising Minister / Interim Rinban
Reverend Marvin Harada


Reverend “Marv”now serves as the bishop of the Buddhist Churches of America, effective March 2020.

He formerly served as the head minister of the Orange County Buddhist temple, where he has been since 1986.  We are fortunate that we had him overseeing the Sacramento Betsuin and serving our Sangha for the past two-plus years. We are grateful for his spiritual guidance and leadership. We are in the process of having another minister assigned to our temple.

Reverend Harada has been a minister for over 30 years, and has created many successful Buddhist Education Programs and online classes.
