our staff

The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,  until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ.   Ephesians 4:11-13 (NRSV)

  • Rev. bruce lethbridge  (senior pastor)

    Pastor Bruce has been the Senior Pastor of Orcutt Presbyterian Church since October 1996. He is a graduate of Westmont College and Fuller Theological Seminary. He has a deep love for teaching the Scriptures and a passion for people coming to know the living God who is revealed to us in Jesus Christ.

    "The love of God has reached out to the world in the gift of Jesus. We as his disciples are committed to growing more like him in thought, word, and action. My hope is that we can all discover that the church is not primarily a place you go, but rather the people we are, people who has been called by God's grace into a new life, and a new community. It is my privilege and joy to lead others into this discovery."

  • cindy baeza   (church secretary)

    Cindy grew up in the Santa Maria Valley, and is the voice over the phone, the smile you see when you walk into the office, and the minister who prays and helps so many in our church and community. 

    She is a joy to work with and has been serving in this position since 2004.  

    Cindy loves spending time with her family, reading books, going on walks and road trips, and hearing people's life stories "with all the juicy details."


  • Meredith brough   (Chancel choir director)

    Meredith filled in as our interim choir director years ago, but we soon realized that the "interim" part of her title needed to go!  She loves to bring her musical passion and gifts to the choir and beyond.  

    She is such a blessing to us as she continues to re-energize the choir with her creativity, passion, and love for the Lord. 

    You might also see her at Righetti High School where she works at the Attendance Office.

    It didn't take long for Josh to get plugged in with playing keyboard for youth on Wednesdays and the congregation on Sundays.  Josh loves music, the church, techs stuff, and running the sound system.  He helps with our Live Stream capabilities as well.

    Josh graduated high school in June 2018, and is currently pursuing a degree in computer science at Cal Poly SLO.  Josh enjoys using sound equipment to promote an atmosphere of worship by making sure the musicians are fully equipped to lead the congregation in praise, and he loves to play the keys on the worship team every opportunity he gets.
