In September, High Plains Fellowship (PCA) in Falcon welcomed Interim Pastor Wes O’Neill. High Plains Fellowship is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America, in the Rocky Mountain Presbytery.
The son of a college professor and an elementary teacher, O’Neill is a native of Pennsylvania and was raised in Massachusetts and Maine, with a two-year detour to Fort Collins, Colorado. O’Neill met his wife, Kathy, while he attended the University of Maine. He also attended Covenant Seminary in St. Louis.
O’Neill has served as pastor in churches in St. Louis; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Schenectady, New York; and Arlington, Texas. He has been interim pastor in New York, Texas, and Oklahoma. He has also consulted with a number of churches in the North Texas Presbytery.
“I am thankful that God has led me to churches where I have been able to minister to people who love the Lord and want to serve Him,” O’Neill said. “So, I am excited about the prospect of helping High Plains Fellowship through this time of transition.”
O’Neill and his wife have been married for 53 years and have two children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Kathy O’Neill is an elementary art teacher and writer. Their son is a police officer in California, and their daughter is a school administrator and teacher in Colorado Springs.
