The Presbytery of San Diego was established in 1968 as a regional body of the Presbyterian Church. For 50 years, we have been helping local Presbyterian congregations to witness to the love of God in their communities, serve the forgotten, and grow disciples of Jesus. With 31 congregations (large and small) and over 12,000 members throughout San Diego and Imperial Counties, we are part of the Presbyterian Church (USA).


Mission and Vision

Our mission is to be spiritual, missional, and relational leaders assisting and supporting congregations to become communities of faith, hope, love, and witness.

Our vision is to plant and vitalize churches and align to a missional focus.
