| Graham Baird is our Designated Pastor while we are in the process of searching for a new permanent pastor. Graham has been a pastor for the past 15 years. He earned his Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary and is currently working on his Doctoral degree at Fuller. He was the founding pastor of Highlands Church in Paso Robles and, recently, the Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Colorado Springs. Most recently Graham has been involved with starting a new church in Camarillo, Ca, called, “Mission Street Church”.
Graham is a fourth generation Presbyterian minister, and the author of the book One Hundred Years of Ministry: A Practical Guide for Pastors and Church Leaders. Graham is married to his wife Star and has two daughters; Haley (7) and Sheena (3). He and Star also very recently welcomed a new son, Ewan Arthur Baird, born early in the morning of July 27, 2016.
In his spare time, Graham loves spending time with his family. He also likes to cook, play bagpipes, lift weights and read. A few interesting ‘nuggets’ about Graham are that he speaks Danish fluently and played piano in a piano bar during college.
