Elected Leaders

Pasadena's committees provide direct leadership over various areas of the church’s operations.

Who and what are the Church committees?

Elected leaders fulfill vital governance roles for Pasadena Community Church (Church). These committees are composed of a diverse group of Christ-followers from all campuses who seek to foster a vibrant, healthy, ethical and sustainable church that strives toward its purpose of “building a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.”
