Get To Know Us!
Pleasant Hill has been a part of our community for over 160 years. That is a long and rich legacy. It would be easy for our legacy to be one of survival. We have made it through a civil war, two world wars, economic downturns and turmoil in our country. This church has survived; however, our legacy should be more than just one of survival. Our legacy must be one of lives changed by the truth. In the past, men and women have taken this task seriously. If you walk through the cemetery, you will see the names of so many who sacrificed so that the truth of God’s word could be proclaimed. Now, it is our turn. What will we do to make sure that our legacy continues to change lives? What will we do to seek the lost, mature the Christian, and serve in our community? What role will YOU play in the legacy of Pleasant Hill?
The vision of Pleasant Hill is to be “United in Christ, Seeking the Lost, Maturing the Christian, and Serving the Community.”
In keeping with the example set in the book of Acts, our congregation is led by a team of Elders. Our four Elders, Leo Beller, Jim Faix, Doug Lanier, and Lawrence Parker, are men who love the Lord, His Word, and His Church. Their leadership and dedication sets a strong example for Pleasant Hill. In addition to our Elders, we also have a team of Deacons. These servants help lead and support our ministries while serving wherever needed.
