History The history of the Northminster Presbyterian Church can be traced to October 1962, when the Reverend Everett B. Cowan was called upon by the Presbytery of Los Angeles to organize a church in Diamond Bar. His work prospered, and on Christmas Sunday, December 23, 1962, a Service of Worship was held in a rented room located in the Village Square Shopping Center located at 23535 Golden Springs Drive. The room was later to become the Diamond Bar Post Office. In February 1963, a church school program was initiated for children in nursery through junior high.
On May 26, 1963 the Northminster Presbyterian Church of Diamond Bar was formally organized with 65 charter members. Reverend Cowan died after six months and was followed by the Reverend Howard Still. The church continued to grow and on April 26, 1964, the Congregation voted to establish a Building Committee to direct construction of a new church at the corner of Golden Springs Drive and Rancheria Road. The facility was completed in May of 1965. Under Reverend Still's leadership, church membership reached approximately 550 persons with 350 children registered in the church school program.
Northminster Presbyterian Church continues to be a beacon to the Diamond Bar Community, offering its campus for community programs and continuing to transform the Diamond Bar community and change the world.
