In September 2005, Mark and Debbie Pryor (and son Sheldon) moved to Orange County to lead a small group of believers who were pursuing after the purpose and presence of God. Soon after planting their lives here, God planted a burden in their hearts to create a church that welcomed the unchurched, was a Hospital of healing and hope for wounded and prodigals, and a House of Worship for believers who were passionate to experience Pentecost. This is where Pentecostals of OC was born.
With humble beginnings in a small chapel, God has been faithful to raise up a group of passionate believers through the ministry of POC. Through the years, the heart and soul of the Pentecostals of OC has been refined, and defined, into a dynamic, growing, worshiping United Pentecostal Church strategically located in the heart of Orange County!
The Pentecostals of OC exists for a very simple, but powerful purpose: to help the residents of Orange County experience the power of Jesus Christ!
We believe that you are God’s priority. He desires a personal relationship with you. And you are our priority— we desire POC to be your church family. That comes through building genuine, meaningful relationships. You are welcome here!
We regularly host First Steps where you are introduced to POC’s vision, culture, and commitment to you and the community.
Those who serve at POC are all a part of our Dream Team. These are people who are committed to pursuing the Dream of God’s Exodus 6 promises.
We firmly believe in Connect Groups and encourage you to join and participate in one. They are a wonderful way to deepen your walk with Jesus while developing friendships as we “do life together.”
We take being a church family very seriously and welcome all ages! Our nursery welcomes crawlers through age 3. KIDZ Zone is where your 4-12 year olds will be encouraged. Our student ministries welcome all middle school, high school, and college students.
Our praise and worship, and powerful preaching and teaching of relevant truths out of the Word of God is a part of POC that is passionate, energetic, and engaging.
Under the leadership and direction of Pastors Mark and Debbie, a team of leaders oversees the health of POC focusing on youth, children, and service.
We gather together every Sunday at 11:30am to fellowship, worship, and learn from God’s Word.
