Pastoral, Office, and Music Staff

Rev. Dr. Richard Kleiman has accepted the call to become our Interim Pastor! We look forward to his spiritual leadership in matters of worship, mission, and outreach. His sermons are enlightening and he relates personally with our children. We are eager to listen and learn from Richard. On July 11 join our reception after worship to honor Richard and his wife, Elsa, to the APC church family! We are so excited see his face in the pulpit and for him to guide us! We know his face. Let’s wear our nametags so he knows our faces! Richard and Elsa love to read novels, attend plays and concerts, and view interesting movies. Richard is a sports enthusiast and enjoys walking, yoga, and golf. He also plays the guitar and loves all kinds of music. He likes group singing and some of his musical work has been published. Richard previously led congregations as pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Navasota, First Presbyterian Church of Baytown, and First Presbyterian Church of Stephenville. He has been an Interim Pastor at First Presbyterian Church and Memorial Lutheran in Texas City. A chairman of many church related committees, he also served as a Board Member for Habitat for Humanity, Board Member and President of New Horizon Family Center and President, Board of Trustees, of the Navasota Independent School District. Richard graduated from Baylor University and earned his Master of Divinity at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He attended Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary where he earned his Doctor of Ministry. A quote from his Pastor Information Form - My role as a pastor is to encourage life-affirming ministry in the church. God's grace says that it matters a great deal who we are and what we do with the strength of our lives. Thus, this ministry finds tangible expression in the life of a church in worship, education, spiritual growth, fellowship, evangelism, and local and world-wide mission
