Our Pastors

Pastor Narciso Tecson, Senior Pastor

Born on November 14, 1953, in Manila Philippines, I was the youngest of 5 children of Mariano and Isabel Tecson. I have 3 brothers and one beautiful sister. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Accounting, from San Sebastian College in Cavite City. From 1978-1984, I worked in Manila Banking Corporation where I met my beautiful wife Eleanor Elizaga. Later, I became part owner/manager of Karagatan Seafood House, where I came to know and have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ by eavesdropping on one of the Bible studies being held one evening. In April of 1985, the Lord called me to the ministry and I became an Associate Pastor of San Andres Baptist Church. In 1990 we had the privilege to come to California and serve in Pilipino Community Church, where I am currently serving as the Senior Pastor all by the grace of God. My wife and I are blessed with 4 children—Donna, married to Jon Basilio, Chrissie, married to Chris Mirasol, Michael, married to Lederle Tecson, Sarah, married to Jason Sy, and our eight grandchildren: Jonah, Jadyn, Hannah, Jericho, Leah, Warren, Jaclyn and Noah. To God be the glory!

Pastor Nathaniel Hipe, Associate Pastor – MOTIF ministry, Chancellor Choir

I was born in the Philippines, particularly in Borongan, Eastern Samar, and was raised in Tacloban City, Leyte. I became a Christian during the summer of 1984. At some point during my junior high school year, I became aware that God was calling me to be a minister of His Word on a full time basis. After I went to college for two years, I then proceeded to take my seminary training at Baptist Bible Seminary and Institute which is situated at Taytay, Rizal. Following my six years of preparation, the Lord led me to minister as an Associate Pastor for four years at Buyagan Christian Fundamental Baptist Church of La Trinidad, Benguet. After which, God gave me the privilege of coming over here in the U.S.A. to pursue a graduate degree and simultaneously serve as the College Pastor of Pilipino Community Church.
