Altadena Baptist Church has two pastors: Pastor Connie Larson DeVaughn and Associate Pastor George Van Alstine. These roles reflect a change that the congregation approved in Oct 2018. To quote Pastor George:
I decided that it was important to make an even clearer statement. I recommended, with Connie’s approval, that she become the Pastor from now on, and that I be given the title of Associate Pastor. I explained this to the Deacon Board, then to the congregational Quarterly Business Meeting on October 28, and the new titles have been approved. Our proposal involves no change in our job descriptions or the roles we play in working with the church’s various Departments and Committees.
