1 First Presbyterian Church of Westminster We are seeking an experienced Senior Pastor who will serve our Bible believing church. The Senior Pastor will provide leadership for our weekly worship services, serve as moderator for session, be a primary counselor for church members in crisis situations, and perform all other duties associated with this role. Church Address: 7702 Westminster Blvd, Westminster, CA Church Phone: Church Website: Denomination: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO) Church Membership: 219 Average English Language Worship Attendance (2 services): 137 (2016) Annual Budget: $ 509,956 (2016) Who we are First Presbyterian Church (FPCW) is blessed with Christ loving members. We praise God for our 145 years of ministry in Westminster. Our 219 members are predominately white (81%), female (61%), and of older generations (62% are 65+). With many Bible studies and prayer groups throughout the week, our members are strong in faith and believe that teaching the gospel is among FPCW's priorities. FPCW provides a wonderful place for a rich variety of people to fellowship. We have two English speaking services every Sunday. Our church also provides multiple programs that range from

2 teaching the young during Sunday services to working with and supporting many local missions. FPCW has a local ministry at the Huntington Westminster Senior Apartments allowing senior residents to learn about the gospel. We also offer a Student Improvement Program during the school year, allowing students to grow into our junior and senior high school programs. Besides a strong youth program, our church also has a strong mission program led by our Associate Pastor that includes recent trips to Haiti, Mexico, Peru, and Romania. FPCW holds a conservative viewpoint on social issues. Our church is committed to knowing who Christ is so that we may go and teach others who He is and what He has done for all. FPCW Mission Statement Our Mission Statement at FPCW can be summed up in eight words, To know Christ and to make Him known. We are a friendly, Christ centered church, and we are committed to biblically based teaching, preaching, and serving our community. At FPCW we believe in evangelism, the power of prayer, and Christ's great commission to make disciples of all nations. As such, we are deeply committed to mission outreach at home and around the world. Church Vision Our Spiritual Journey FPCW (our Congregation) is a thriving church body. We see ourselves as dynamic and spirit-filled; a church energized by the power of the Holy Spirit. We see ourselves inspired by the example of Jesus Christ as humble servants to the people of Westminster, our local communities, and other mission fields; servants who will proclaim the good news of the Gospel. We see our two worship services energized and revitalized two services with worshippers who are filled with the Holy Spirit and lifting our voices to praise our Lord God. When you read and learn about the journey of faith of this church, FPCW, it becomes evident that the Lord has been faithful to His Church. With an amazing history of over 140 years of ministry in Westminster, we look forward with anticipation to what the Lord God will do through our service to this community.

3 How we carry out our Vision Be the congregation with the same traits and characteristics that we seek in our next Senior Pastor.
