The Rev. Joseph Phipps is the Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church where he has served since 2008. Pastor Joe was born and raised in Southern California where he studied for a degree in Microbiology from Cal State Fullerton. He spent a few years in food industry lab work and managed a bookstore – which is where he met his wife, Mary; then God “hit him upside of the head” to get his attention and pointed him toward full-time ministry. He received an MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary and has been in ordained ministry since 1992. Joseph and Mary (yes, we know) have one son, Duncan.
Pastor Joe is a member of Fairfield Lions Club, Band Aides, Fairfield Area Community Theatre (FACT), and Fairfield Area Ministerial Association (FAMA). He enjoys spending time with his family, reading, baseball, BBQ, and baking.
Mary Phipps is employed by FSCD where she works one-on-one with students. She loves reading, cooking, BBQ, baseball and is a member of the FACT Board.
