Who We Are

Welcome to City Presbyterian Church (or as we call ourselves, City Pres). We warmly invite you to come and visit us!  Our worship service is a family-friendly atmosphere that is biblical and Reformed.

Rev. Clayton Willis

Senior Pastor

Pastor Clayton grew up in southern California and attended Biola University (BA in Biblical Studies) and Westminster Seminary California (MA Theology).  He was ordained in the PCA in 2005.  He planted Providence Presbyterian (PCA) in Palm Desert, CA and served as their pastor until 2018, when he took a call to Christ Church Presbyterian (PCA) in Irvine, CA. 


After the COVID pandemic, Christ Church merged with Grace Presbyterian (PCA) in Yorba Linda, CA and Clayton served as co-pastor until he and his family moved to Lynchburg, VA in 2022. Pastor Clayton has been married to Kristi for 27 years, and they have 4 children together.
