IMG-0025Meet Centreville Presbyterian Church: 

Centreville Presbyterian Church began as a church plant, from Vienna Presbyterian Church. In the beginning, 50 people showed up to the first worship service at a country club.  Their first pastor arrived in 1988, while the church was still meeting in an elementary school. As leadership changed, the church did too - and continued growing until they needed their own building, which served them well for the past 13 years. Centreville Presbyterian Church has seen several growth cycles in their history, always pointing them back to God’s provision and faithfulness. During the past 30 years, under the leadership of Pastor Rob Bromhead,  the Lord has grown this community of faith from a mission to a thriving church.  

In 2010, a new season of growth brought CPC to contemporary services from a more traditional feel, as well as the beginning of a discernment process on their theological affiliation.  Within the last year CPC separated from the PCUSA and affiliated itself with the ECO Presbyterian denomination and in the process raised over twice as much money needed to leave PCUSA through a Fresh Start Capital Campaign.   God has been faithful and always amidst the people and work of Centreville Presbyterian Church. CPC looks forward with anticipation to what God is up to next as they begin a search for their Co-Pastor as an integral part of the succession plan for their future Lead Pastor.

Fairfax County has a population of well over one million people who represent a large cross-section of people groups and languages.  Fairfax County has one of the highest educated demographics in the United States with many individuals employed by the Federal Government or working as government contractors as well as a significant number of fortune 500 Companies having a presence in the area. CPC attracts people who not only live in Fairfax County, but also Prince William, Loudoun, Fauquier, and other surrounding counties.

Northern Virginia families are extremely active. The cost of living is such that many homes have two working parents. Work commutes into Washington DC are common. The western counties of Northern Virginia have some of the highest performing schools in the nation, with kids involved in lots of activities and striving to gain entry into the best universities. CPC is situated in an ideal location to reach the lost. Many, if not most,of the people in the CPC outreach area are unchurched. It is an ideal mission field with incredible history, culture, and ample opportunity to reach the world for Christ, literally in one’s own neighborhood.
