Council & Staff

Our pastor, elders, deacons, staff, and other volunteers serve in countless ways to plan worship, organize ministry efforts, and reach out to our community.

Pastor Rich, the council, and the Pastoral Search Committee are working together in the search for a new permanent pastor for our church. Pastor Rich has previously ministered to congregations in Iowa, Ontario, Michigan, and New Jersey.

Administrator

Palo Alto CRC is in need of an office manager/administrator beginning mid January 2022. We estimate the role of the administrator will require 6-8 hours a week, of which we would prefer that half of that time be on site (687 Arastradero Rd. Palo Alto, CA 94306). Tasks include assembling and printing the weekly bulletins, managing church communications (email, voicemail, mail sorting), social media and website updates, and being available from time to time for the odd utility service worker who needs access to the site. 

 

If you know of anyone who would be interested, let us know! You can also copy info@pacrc.org to ask for more information straight from our current admin.
