The Team

From our lead pastor

Dr. Chris Padiath

It brings me great joy to serve WPA as Lead Pastor. I work in partnership with the Board of Deacons and Elders and give leadership to the Pastoral Team. My primary responsibilities include preaching and teaching from the scriptures and helping the church realize its vision of thinking biblically, growing spiritually and living missionally in everyday life. The Pastoral Team and I are here to serve you.
