Our Pastor


Rev. Dexter McNamara became our full-time pastor on April 1, 2015.

Dexter is a graduate of UCLA and Princeton Theological Seminary.  He spent 12 years in Denver, Colorado, serving in congregations and community programs.  He came to Sacramento in 1983 to join the staff of Fremont Presbyterian Church, serving there until 1993.  He subsequently worked with the Interfaith Service Bureau, California Emergency Foodlink, and Partners In Care.

Dexter and his wife, Carole, have a combined family of 5 grown children and nine grandchildren…plus a very high-energy dog named Jackson.
