Ingleside Presbyterian Church: A Historic Landmark Inside And Out

Man in vestibule

This June, Ingleside Presbyterian Chuch turns 117 years old. And Rev. Roland Gordon will mark his 46th anniversary at the helm in July. Last year, he received a Bay Area Jefferson Award and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Award for extraordinary service to local communities. The Ingleside Light is republishing historian Woody LaBounty's 2011 column about the historic church and Roland's masterwork the “Great Cloud of Witnesses.”
