First Presbyterian Church of WPB Leadership
First Presbyterian Church of WPB is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
I have been serving First Presbyterian Church of West Palm Beach as Pastor since December of 2009.
It is a privilege and a joy to serve the wonderful people here at First Church. We have a caring and wonderful church family that hails from all around the world. Everyone strives to live out our mission statement, "To love and serve Christ and his people."
We strive to have vibrant, Christ-centered Worship Services, Bible Studies and outreach programs.
One of our hallmark features is that we serve the community by hosting a Monday Night Meal Ministry. Warm meals, toiletries, blankets and clothes are provided on a weekly basis.
Prior to my work here at First Presbyterian Church I worked for many years in Christian Education with Adults, Youth, Children and preschool. Then I went back to seminary at Reformed Theological Seminary in Oviedo, Florida to earn my M-Div. before becoming the Pastor of this church.
My husband and I have been married for over 40 years and we have two grown sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law and a grandson, age 3 1/2 who brings us great joy.
Our church is blessed with many amazing musicians and talent which adds to my joy because I have been involved in music my entire life.
On the 5th Sundays of the Month we have a hymn sing where everyone who plays an instrument can come and be part of our church band. That is a lot of fun.
I certainly enjoy being on a faith journey together with our Church Family!
Hanlim Chae serves in many capacities to several churches. He is now the Rev. Hanlim Chae and is also working on his doctorate. We are so fortunate that he is willing to help us as Office Administrator. He is so knowledgeable and always willing to help whether it is an office issue, technical issue or even helping out with a Worship Service or wedding!
Tom Wierzbicki has been the music director at our church for over 8 years. He is super talented! He plays lots of instruments, and has a master's degree in Music Composition from Florida Atlantic University. He often surprises us with something he has just composed. He is trained in classical and jazz. So every 3rd Sunday we have a Jazz Worship Service. What fun!
Everyone who knows him will tell you he is also a joy to work with!
We are grateful that he is part of our team.
