Geoff Pfaff has been the Pastor of La Habra Hills Presbyterian Church since January 2001. After graduating from Fuller Seminary, he spent 17 years pastoring churches in Oklahoma before being called to La Habra. Geoff, his wife, Sally, and their three children moved to La Habra while their kids were in school, and after 12 years of ministry, they recently watched their youngest daughter graduate from high school. Geoff is excited about the future of LHHPC and believes that “…now is a particularly exciting time as we move forward in our “Equip the People, Equip the Place” vision for our congregation. We are expanding our staff and refurbishing our facilities as we strive to equip our LHHPC family to grow as disciples. As disciples, we desire to serve our community and expose them to the love of Jesus Christ, and by so doing to extend the call to follow Jesus to those around us. What a privilege it is to be a part of such a task; what a gift to be disciples of this God of grace and glory.”
Jerry Haraguchi has been the Director of Family Ministry at LHHPC since August 2006. He first attended LHHPC in high school and God brought Jerry and his family back to LHHPC after many years away. Before joining the staff at LHHPC, Jerry and his wife, Kelly, were campus missionaries with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship on the central coast and in the central valley of California. Jerry longs to see families of faith develop life-long relationships with Jesus. He is excited to see La Habra Hills Presbyterian Church grow to be a family made up of families growing in devotion to God and to one another. And as this family of families, reach out to families around LHHPC with the Gospel message of life, hope and love.
David came to LHHPC in November of 2002 along with his wife, Nancy, and son, Ian. His background includes piano performance and accompanying, choral directing, as well as music education and curriculum development. His involvement in church-renewal ministry has led him to serve as an “intentional interim” in a variety of stylistic and denominational settings. David’s passion is for the people of God to openly and freely worship Him together in a way that invites the manifest presence of God into our midst. Huh?! In other words, that our sincere expressions of love and praise would provide a setting where God makes us aware of His awesome presence. Church family, you are “a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” —1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)
