PASO ROBLES — The Paso Robles Community Church (PRCC) is welcoming a new pastor and his family. Daniel Gloster Baxter is coming to the PRCC after serving as a lead pastor all over California.

As a family they love new adventures, board games, good hikes, great art, cheering on their favorite sports teams and walking alongside others on their faith journey.

Daniel lays out his heart and vision for PRCC: 

It is my passion to encourage the church as a thriving, multicultural, and multigenerational family who actively pursues the art of loving God and loving others well.

Together we will encourage one another to be authentic Christ-followers; embracing ongoing spiritual development and putting heart, thought and word to action as we live out our faith.

Together we will serve our God by serving our community; displaying the love, hope and transformation we have in Jesus Christ to our neighbors.

Together we will cultivate great relationships; fostering connections with God, with one another, and with those who still need to know Jesus.

Lastly, Daniel shares, “I see great potential at PRCC — a unified and welcoming family, with a variety of backgrounds and stories, gathered around a common Savior with a desire to shine His light in our community. God has gifted you and I the joy and privilege to join this great adventure. I am excited to join the family and encourage you as we embrace the call together to be the best church for Paso Robles.”
