About Steele Creek Presbyterian Church at Pleasant Hill

An exciting new church which has come together as the result of merging two historic congregations. Over the last 3 years, we have successfully overcome the hurtles of bringing two congregations together into one church. We have just completed an extensive Visioning process led by Clarity Navigator and are implementing that Vision in the life of our church family and community. Part of that implantation is the hiring of new staff to help us fulfill our mission. We are looking for those who can bring excitement, skill, and expertise along with a deeply committed personal relationship with Christ!
