July of 2009 the First Presbyterian Church of Hollister (FPCH) established a mission study team to develop this Mission Study Report which sets forth a new mission and vision for our congregation. The report's objective is twofold: to provide information necessary for the search of a new Senior Pastor; and to give new direction and focus to our ministry and mission. 

This Mission Study is influenced by a ministry evaluation and review that was begun in the fall of 2007.   The Mission Study Team was reconstituted in July 2009 under our interim pastor, Dr. Stephen Brewer, to fulfill the Committee on Ministries requirement of reevaluating the church's mission in preparation of calling a new installed pastor. The vision of the First Presbyterian Church of Hollister promotes love in action through:

1) Reaching out to our community in service, meeting people where they are in life.

2) Equipping one another as disciples through small groups with strong leadership grounded in prayer, Scripture, and koinonia fellowship.

3) Loving God through worship, and by loving our community through gift-oriented ministry. This creates the acronym “REAL”:
Reaching, Equipping and Loving.
