Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church, (PLCPC) in the heart of the Point Loma peninsula in San Diego, CA is seeking an energetic and creative Senior Pastor/Head of Staff for our vibrant and engaged 1000 member congregation.  Our beloved “Red Brick Church” has served as a beacon of light and hope to our unique Point Loma community for over 75 years. We seek to provide dynamic ministries designed to reach all ages through Christ-centered preaching, worship, fellowship, service, and outreach, with doors open to all.

With a minimum of 5-10 years of experience in demonstrated church leadership, our pastor will provide spiritual guidance, practical direction, and oversight in worship, administration, and pastoral care, with a $1.2 million operating budget. We especially seek a leader who will help our church attract more young adults and families, and to adapt to the challenges of the future with sensitivity and grace.  

Point Loma is a scenic, suburban, seaside community flanked by the bay and Pacific Ocean, with an excellent school system, abundant recreational and cultural activities, and a proud Naval presence.
