Oak Park Christian Center was established in 1938 in Walnut Creek and was later moved to its current location here in Pleasant Hill. Did you know Oak Park Christian Center has been around for 80 years?
Pastor Bill Matthews was the previous pastor before Pastor Sean, and he served as the senior pastor for 40 years. Under his leadership stewardship, Oak Park grew immensely, was taken through several building projects, and grown abundantly. Pastor Bill left an amazing legacy.
Pastor Bill retired in 2015 to pursue a dream of starting a home for adults with special needs, as one of his adult children is disabled. As he transitioned out of leadership, he began a three-year mentorship with Pastor Sean, our current lead pastor.
Pastor Sean has been serving at Oak Park Christian Center since 2004. He served as the youth pastor until 2015 and began his role as senior pastor after that.
