About the Church
Occidental United Presbyterian Church has shined a light into the Eagle Rock neighborhood for over 100 years. We are a warm, welcoming, and inviting congregation that would love to meet you. Whether you're a seeker or a life-long Christian, you are welcome here. Come join us for worship at 9:30 AM on Sunday mornings.
Meet the Pastor
The Rev. Dr. Erik W. Dailey has a heart for ministry in Los Angeles, and all the amazing opportunities and challenges that ministry offers. He started serving at Occidental Presbyterian in 2013, and he currently serves at both Occidental and Eagle Rock Presbyterian (which is just up the street). In addition to ministry, he teaches theology at Azusa Pacific University and Fuller Theological Seminary. He is a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary (MDiv 2004) and Fuller (PhD 2017). He enjoys competitive swimming and cycling, researching L.A. history, watching film noir, and of course hanging out with his wife (who’s also a pastor!) and his adorable daughter, Junia. He is the author of The Fit Shall Inherit the Earth: A Theology of Sport and Fitness. And if you ever need a local restaurant recommendation, he is the person to ask!
