FIRST FULL-TIME PASTOR CALLED

This Happened On 06/15/1972

They called him “Cupid” Aquila — and with good reason: During his six years at Stony Point, the Reverend Dominic A. Aquila conducted 34 marriage ceremonies. He also administered 26 baptisms, the first of which was his own son, Andy, a year from the day Dominic and his wife, Davileen, came to SPC.

Dominic provided dynamic leadership during a time of significant growth in the church. His firm command of Scripture along with his administrative abilities served the church well in its formative years.

In his letter of resignation, having been called to the Cerritos Valley Orthodox Presbyterian Church in California, Dominic wrote:

There is no way that Davileen or I can express our thanksgiving to God and to you for six wonderful years. Our fellowship will always be in the bonds of Christ. We will pray that your love will abound more and more in true knowledge and all discernment so that you will be able to approve the things which are excellent. The grace of the Lord be with you. Sincerely in Christ, Dominic A. Aquila
