“LAPC is a church that has a history of dynamic, inclusive, and radical ministry. This church plays a critical role as a hub for social justice and advocacy here in the neighborhood and the broader community.
People are craving a place where they can wrestle with the big questions of faith, experience stirring worship, and engage in liberating work. We want folks to know that LAPC is that place.”
The Rev. David F. Nunn-Telfort

Search for Interim Pastor Launched
The Church’s leadership has initiated the next steps in the process, which is to launch the search for an Interim Pastor to guide the Congregation during this transition period (Read the Job Description).
Subsequently, the Church community will undertake a process that will lead to the search for its new Pastor, a process that engages the entire congregation which is unique to Presbyterian Churches and only a few other denominations. Updates and on-going communications are a crucial part of that process.
