The Reverend Sue Fisher, Pastor

The Rev. Sue Fisher is a Teaching Elder member of the Presbytery of the Pacific and served as its Moderator in 2014. Entering seminary mid-life, she received her M.Div. from San Francisco Theological Seminary in 2000, with recognition for preaching. She served at First Gardena, West Hollywood and Brentwood Presbyterian Churches and Faith Presbyterian Church of Torrance. She has served as commissioner to Synod and GA. Her spiritual gifts are: Leadership, Administration, Creative Ability and Hospitality. Specializing in interim pastoral work, she has developed methods to train officers, welcome new members, help congregations discover their spiritual gifts and equip the congregation for ministry. For ten years she has been part of the Presbytery’s Nicaragua Partnership Team and has traveled to Nicaragua 7 times. She believes, “Church should be a place where people feel safe, welcomed and excited about contributing their unique gifts and graces to create a community that cares for one another, grows spiritually together and reflects Christ’s love to the world. And we should have a joyful time doing it!” She sings with the Mixed Chorus of El Camino College, loves gardening and traveling. She and her husband of 34 years have three children and two granddaughters, and two doggies they spoil shamelessly (well, okay, they spoil the granddaughters a little too).
