Originally founded in 1932 as a white congregation, McCarty Memorial Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) gained attention when it integrated and became one of the first multi-racial congregations in Los Angeles in the mid-1950s.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, McCarty is a prime example of the rich Black history and culture of Los Angeles, and continues to serve members of the community from West Adams to Leimert Park. Today, McCarty’s senior pastor is Rev. Eddie Anderson, who also serves as the Chief Executive Officer of PFGLA.
