Adult Ministry

Christ gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Ephesians 4:11-13

In adult ministry, our aim is to help every member of the congregation experience the love of God and mature in their relationship to Jesus- becoming more like Him each day. As we mature, the Holy Spirit empowers and send us out to make God's love known in our community. Each follower of Jesus uses their own unique giftedness to serve alongside others to bring glory and honor to God. Jesus called us his disciples. Jesus not only makes it possible for us to know the love of God, but He also teaches us how to live in that love. Adult Ministry offers opportunities to learn how to grow in our faith, use our gifts, build one another up, and help others know the love of God.


​PEAK is our weekly time of fellowship and learning for the whole family! Every Wednesday night begins with a dinner in Koopmans Hall at 5:30 (cost is $5 for adults, $4 for children 12 and under). Afterwards, kids will head off to their PEAK classes at 6:15 and we have our two adult classes this semester:


“Faithfulness, Discipleship, and Leadership:
Lessons from 1 & 2 Timothy” in Koopmans Hall
 Writing to the Christian community in the city of Ephesus, Paul charged the followers of Christ to stand firm and to be faithful in the face of opposition. We hope you can join us for this PEAK Bible Study Class as we examine our understanding of discipleship and learn together how to be faithful to the gospel in the 21st century American culture.

Mouris Yousef
Senior Pastor & Head of Staff

Dr. Yousef was born and raised in Egypt to godly parents whose faith in a God who is real, present and active was unshakeable. Having been raised in a home where faith was taught and lived, Mouris, by the grace of God, experienced from his childhood the power of God’s redeeming love. That journey of embracing the amazing grace of God continued through his youth and adult years and resulted in leading Mouris to Seminary, where he graduated in 1993 with a Master’s of Divinity at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo, Egypt.

In 1994, Mouris was ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacraments by the Egyptian Presbyterian Church. Mouris and his family have been in the USA since 2002. In the United States, Mouris earned a Master’s of Arts in Theological Studies from New Brunswick Theological Seminary, NJ, a Master’s of Sacred Theology and a Doctor’s of Ministry at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, PA. Before coming to serve as Senior Pastor & Head of Staff of the La Crescenta Presbyterian Church, Mouris has served congregations in Egypt, Kuwait, and New Jersey.

Mouris is married to Margaret Yousef and they both have two college children, Moshier and Miral. Mouris is so passionate about God’s Kingdom and how God’s people can be involved in the growing Kingdom of Christ. He enjoys seeing God’s children growing up in their faith and taking their discipleship to the next level. In his free time, Mouris loves spending time with his family, gardening and reading a good book.
