Kirk Bottomly

Senior Pastor

Kirk Bottomly has been the Senior Pastor at FOPC since 2008. In the 60 year history of FOPC, he is only the third Senior Pastor. After a career in technical and speech writing, Kirk then attended Princeton Seminary where he received his Masters of Divinity. Since then, Kirk has been an associate pastor of Christian Education at Emmanuel Presbyterian and the Senior Pastor at Fallbrook Presbyterian Church. He and his wife Laila have two children and six grandchildren, 90 different fruit trees, and 30 varieties of tomatoes. When not playing with grandkids or tending the garden, Kirk can be found biking the American River Parkway or reading mystery fiction.

Favorite Part of Working at FOPC

I love encouraging Christian believers to become fully-devoted followers of Jesus. I love preaching the Word, passionate worship, teaching Bible and theology, expecting miracles, watching faith grow in others.
