Throughout its history, PCC has sought to serve the needs of Los Angeles through the partnerships of Hope for Los Angeles, impacting homelessness, loving foster youth, and lifting up families in need. The church also supports gospel-centered ministry through the Center for Faith and Work, and Reformed University Fellowship at USC and UCLA. Our global outreach ministry works alongside partners to encourage the work of God’s global church by sending and supporting short-term and long-term missionaries.
We prioritize church planting, global cities, and indigenous leadership in the areas of Asia Pacific, Central Asia, and Europe. In every season our mission has remained steadfast: to gather, grow, and send forth strong disciples of Jesus for the glory of God, motivated by the Gospel of Grace because He first loved us.
Our Affiliation and Beliefs
Pacific Crossroads Church is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church of America, a Reformed denomination rooted in the life-giving gospel, faithful to the Scriptures, and committed to church planting and missions throughout the world. Whether or not you are familiar with the Reformed faith or Christianity, whether you are a believer or a skeptic, wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome at Pacific Crossroads Church.
Throughout the Bible, God sets apart leaders to care for and serve His people, yet leadership in the Bible is distinctively different. Leaders in the church are called to serve, under God, to equip and build up others (Ephesians 4:11-12). The Bible lays out two main offices of leadership in the local church: elders and deacons.
The biblical picture of elders is found in 1 Timothy 3, Acts 20, and Titus 1. At Pacific Crossroads, elders are trained to see themselves primarily as shepherds (1 Peter 5) who lead, feed, know, and protect those entrusted to their care. To contact our elders email: email@example.com
Current Ruling Elders
Current Teaching Elders
The biblical picture of deacons is found in Acts 6 and 1 Timothy 3. The title deacon comes from the Greek word for “servant.” Deacons at Pacific Crossroads serve the church in a variety of capacities. They assist the elders of the church in diverse areas such as the Finance Team, Operations, Mercy Ministry, and Congregational Care.
“Whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
