About us

LPCC is an international, interdenominational, evangelical, and english speaking community of faith. Community Church exists to glorify God as a Gospel presence in La Paz by being a grace-filled community that worships Christ and makes disciples who serve Him in our families, neighborhoods, and the nations. 

We are a community that is committed to being: Thoughtful, as we share our Bolivia experiences. Welcoming, as we have come from all over the world. Responsive, as we all have various needs. Relational, as we are far from homes, family, and friends. And, Spiritual, as we process what it means to follow Jesus in a foreign land. We want people to not only survive living in La Paz, but to thrive!

Caleb Adams

Interim Pastor

Caleb is from Louisiana in the United States. He is married to Courtney and they have two children Alyas (4) and Ada (8 months). They live in La Paz and Caleb serves as the Chaplain at Highlands International School. Before moving to La Paz he was the family pastor at a church near Memphis, TN. His passions are family, learning languages, meeting new people, and exploring nature.  

 

We’re excited to welcome Caleb, Courtney, Alyas and Ada into the LPCC family of faith.  His first Sunday will be 31 October and we anticipate that he’ll be leading as our part-time Interim Pastor for the next 6-12 months.  During that time we will begin a search for the next permanent pastor for our congregation.
