Put ‘er there!

My name is Bruce Wayne Wersen. And although I’ll answer to “Pastor Bruce,” I encourage people to simply call me Bruce. My wife’s name is Shar. We have two kids, Keaton and Shaz.

I co-founded His Place back in 1983 when I merged a college Bible study I was leading with my father’s adult Bible study. My dad Larry pastored the church for 14 years. Meanwhile I continued leading the youth and shortly became the church’s administrator as well. I have served in just about every capacity over the past 20 years, and in April 1997 I became the senior pastor.

In 1988, I directed the construction of our “Noah’s Ark” Children’s Church. The design and most of the construction was completed by Ken Beane, our Music Director.

In April 2000, we moved into our current, expanded sanctuary. And in April 2002, we added "Community Church" to our name, in an effort to communicate more clearly with the unchurched.

Although I didn't go to Bible college, I’ve received much pastoral training. I attended UCLA’s Extended Arts Program for Motion Pictures in the early 80’s. And I’m still pursuing this passion “on the side.”

I’ve enjoyed the past two decades of ministry at His Place, and I look forward to what God has for the future. But I must confess, the years have taken their toll.
