Rev. Ron Pfeifer


Head of Staff

Pastor Ron Pfeifer was born and raised in Southern California. He grew up in a Christian family, and accepted Christ as his Savior when he was 10 years old.
In high school and college, he became increasingly involved in youth ministry, and gradually he began to sense God calling him into a life of vocational ministry. Following that calling led Ron to San Francisco Theological Seminary, where he earned his Master of Divinity degree.
He was ordained a teaching elder in 1997, and his first pastorate was serving a yoked PC(USA)-UCC parish in rural Illinois. In 2005, God led him to the First Presbyterian Church of Othello, Washington – a congregation which he thoroughly enjoyed leading and serving as Solo Pastor for 10 years, prior to accepting our call to the First Presbyterian Church of Inverness.
