New Forum Series: Evangelical Views on Creation – Nov 11
Online & interactive – Sundays at 10 am Eastern & Pacific

The Orchard is led by a team of pastors who oversee the whole church, and our pastors are assisted by ministry leaders who direct specific church ministries, some online and some in local fellowships. Feel free to contact any of our church leaders! (Just click on the name of the church leader below.) For more information on our leadership structure, see our team approach to church leadership (one of our core commitments), or our blog post: Why we don’t have a senior pastor.


Pastoral Team

Our pastors vary in their gifting and time availability, so some oversee specific areas of ministry while others serve in a more general capacity. But all share together in the pastoral ministry of leading, teaching and tending the church:

Chris Brackett  | pastoral team member   (Orangevale, CA)

Jack Foster  | pastoral team member   (Cabo Rojo, PR)

Curt Parton  | teaching and leadership development   (Citrus Heights, CA)

Ministry Leaders

We thank God for the dedicated people who serve God and our church family by leading our various ministries.
