To all who are spiritually weary and seek rest; to all who mourn and long for comfort; to all who struggle and desire victory; to all who sin and need a Savior; to all who are strangers and want fellowship; to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; and to whoever will come — this church opens wide her doors and offers her welcome in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Who We Are

Home: Who We Are

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America, a Bible-believing, confessional, and evangelical Reformed denomination founded in 1973. As a church, we strive to be, faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. We invite you to learn more about our faith and our mission.

Our Pastor is Zachary Garris. He is married to Sara, and they have one son, David. Zachary holds a Master of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary (Jackson) and a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University Law School. Prior to pastoring, he practiced law and taught at a Christian school. He enjoys reading, writing, exercising, and traveling with his family.

BAPC is also governed by a board of elders and a board of deacons.  Our ruling elders are Charles Bell, David Finnegan, David Forslund, and Edward Lum.   Our deacons are Mike Inbody and Randy Rowan. Elders and deacons can be contacted at


Our purpose can be summarized by the statement:

To exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of men and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth. - J.C.Ryle

In 1985, the church changed its name to Bryce Avenue Presbyterian Church. In the fall of 1986, the Reverand LaVerne Donaldson became the interim pastor, followed in the spring of 1987 by the Reverend Henry Fernandez.

The church facility was rebuilt in 1992 following a major fire. Throughout the decades of challenge and change, God’s faithfulness has stood as a testimony to His grace and love.

The Covenant Christian school was closed in 1997.
