The group was now ready to petition the Southern California Presbytery of the OPC to recognize it as a church plant and provide elder oversight. The Presbytery answered the petition and provided three elders, including the Southern California Home Missions Secretary, the Rev. Don Poundstone. By the end of 2002, the group began a Sunday morning worship service, meeting at the Escondido Community Center. In February of 2003, the group began renting the Westminster Seminary Chapel for morning and evening Lord’s Day services, with Mr. Zach Keele as our Evangelist by 2004. In June 2006, the group was large enough to be organized as a permanent congregation. Mr. Keele was called to be the Pastor.
