Other Details

Greetings to you and thank you for your interest in Christ Presbyterian Church. 

We are looking for a new senior pastor to lead our PCA church in Georgetown, Texas. Our current pastor, who planted the church fifteen years ago, has taken a new role as  a church planting facilitator in South Texas. 


Our purpose, as a church, is to serve Christ in the areas we worship, live, and work; encouraging every individual towards a life-changing relationship with him. Through Christ, we seek the transformation of ourselves and every area of our community for his glory.

Our desire is to be a people who:

  • Eagerly worship, learn, and grow together through prayer, devotion, and sound biblical theology.
  • Pursue a consistent & faithful walk with the Holy Spirit.
  • Cultivate a distinctly reformed Christian worldview.
  • Discover, nurture, and apply our God-given gifts for the edification of the Church & community.
  • Gracefully show compassion towards the lost, least, and afflicted.
  • Acknowledge our dependence on Christ and pray continually for his guidance furthering his kingdom here on earth.
  • Recognize that we are all sinners, in need of grace and forgiveness.
  • Build relationships characterized by genuine honesty, persistent peace, and steadfast love.


Our objective is to create a home that nourishes the body of believers and delivers the transformative message of the gospel to the surrounding community through:

  • Proclaiming the gospel to the lost and found.
  • Crafting worship services that are Christ-centered and engaging.
  • Developing biblical community.
  • Discipling and equipping believers of all ages.
  • Evangelizing and serving our community.
  • Partnering with like-minded churches and organizations.
  • Cultivating church-planting partnerships around the world.

Church Dynamics

Our church began as a Bible study in a store front in Georgetown. As our congregation grew, we migrated from rental to rental until we were blessed to open the doors to our own building in 2023. The makeup of our church is a healthy multi-generational balance between young and old, and we have, on average, 180 in attendance each week. There has been significant growth in our weekly visitor count and we recently welcomed 35 new members, our largest membership class to date. Many of our members are drawn by our distinctly reformed theology, and as a result we have a geographically dispersed membership spanning a twenty mile radius. 

We are a Christ Centered Church, made up of a diverse group of people from a variety of backgrounds and life stages, yet, we all share a common love, gratitude, and commitment to our Savior, Jesus Christ. We recognize that the Gospel is more than forgiveness; it is total redemption from a life of sin and death. This results in Christ-centered worship and a community-wide commitment to grow spiritually and bring glory to Christ.

We adhere to Reformed Theology and hold to the traditions of the Presbyterian Church of America, (PCA). Please visit our website for more information about our church: https://www.cpcgeorgetown.org

Our staff consists of three full time positions: senior pastor, director of discipleship (working towards ordination), and office administrator. Part time positions include children’s ministry director, youth director, bookkeeper, music coordinator, nursery coordinator, and treasurer. The annual operating budget, not including the mortgage, is approximately $500,000. A generosity initiative raised building funds sufficient for a 25% down payment and three more years of monthly mortgage payments. The senior pastor compensation package will be set based upon experience and need but will be at least $125,000.

Our session consists of six ruling elders. We have seven deacons.  Lay leaders head up the following ministries: prayer, missions, hospitality, sound, men’s, women’s, senior center, community groups, and prison. 


Our church building was completed in the second quarter of 2023 and seats about 250. We are located in a business park where the exterior of the building coordinates with the other buildings in the development. Our signage identifies the church, and there is a large cross on the south side of the building. The building is visible from a highly traveled Georgetown street. The building also houses our staff offices, a conference room, four class rooms, a warming kitchen, a large lobby, restrooms, and a children’s play area to the rear of the building.


Georgetown is 40 miles north of Austin – the capital of Texas and is one of the fastest growing cities in America, with a population approaching 90,000. It is the county seat for Williamson County and is benefiting from its proximity to growth in locally based technology companies including Dell, Samsung, Tesla, Google, Amazon, and Apple. We also have significant retirement communities within a few miles, including the Del Webb Sun City Texas.
