The Pacific Conference is a network of Brethren in Christ congregations located in California, Oregon, and Washington.
As part of the BIC U.S., we facilitate church planting, hiring and supporting local pastors, and developing ministry initiatives within the Pacific Conference.
Meet Bishop Perry Engle
Perry has been serving as bishop of the Pacific Conference since 2002 and served as bishop of the Midwest Conference until 2020.
Before his appointment as bishop, Perry was a church planter and founding co-pastor of New Community BIC, Chino, Calif., where he pastored for 15 years.
In his role as bishop, Perry brings a passion for peace and justice, advocating for women in ministry, culturally relevant communication, and radical renewal for the Church. Perry is an active leader at both the BIC’s regional and denominational levels, lending his gifts of communication and humor to each task.
Perry lives with his wife, Marta in Ontario, Calif. When not busy with his duties as pastor and bishop, Perry enjoys writing, hanging out in his garden, and traveling with Marta to Philadelphia and Seattle to visit their three daughters and one grandson.
