a message from christine chakoian

I am excited at the prospect of being called to serve at Westwood Presbyterian Church. I have been deeply touched by the integrity and care of the Pastor Nominating Committee. They have represented you well!


There are so many wonderful gifts that are evidenced here, including worship that is awe-filled, thoughtful, transformative, and genuine; theology that is Scripturally-based, curious about God’s unfolding work, inclusive of varying perspectives; mission that is compassionate, practical, and prophetic.


The engagement of so many members in the work of the church speaks of the deep investment you have. To use Kierkegaard’s image, you are not the audience watching the paid leaders perform; instead, you are the performers who worship to give God glory. And it is not just phoning it in! Your courageous decision to move forward on the Belmont Village building project is an extraordinary testament to your long-term commitment to mission within and beyond your church walls.


I rejoice in the great work of Lynn’s ministry, and I know you will miss her very much. It would be my honor to follow in her footsteps.


Should the Spirit so lead, John and I look forward to being part of this wonderful community!
