Pacific Christian Center3435 Santa Maria Way, Santa Maria, CA 93455
It was 1937 when Pastor Charles Dobbins came to Santa Maria... and First Assembly of God of Santa Maria was born. During the ensuing years, the church has been served by pastors: Charles Dobbins, Tom Ming, L.E. Halvorson, Malcum E. Edmundson, C.J. Brown, James W. Dollins, E.J. Kumpe, Harris Lidstrand, Norman Field, Jerry Clark, Lloyd Huf, Timothy Lake, Robert E. Palmer, Ben Ellsworth and our current pastor, Richard Bloom. The church relocated four times as it grew. It is presently in beautiful new facilities on 12 1/2 acres on Santa Maria Way, a stone's throw from the freeway. To reflect the growing vision and purpose of the church, the name was changed to Pacific Christian Center.
