FPC family, we’re sorry to announce that Rev. Dr. Louis Zbinden, our longtime pastor of FPC from 1971 until his retirement in 2003, has passed away due to health issues. He was 84 years old. Dr. Zbinden was a gentleman, a friend, husband, father, grandfather, scholar and a devoted disciple of Jesus Christ. God sent him to San Antonio at just the right moment. As a churchman, he awakened our love for Jesus Christ and our love for one another. As a public leader, he awakened the compassion of the city.

Many of his loved ones say that Mr. Zbinden was a man who would open his home to anyone in need and would give of himself beyond what anybody else could imagine. Join us in praying for Mr. Zbinden’s family and loved ones as they navigate this very difficult time.
Found out last night that I lost my mentor Louis Zbinden on Friday. This man gave me my start and shaped my life forever. He was a gentleman and a scholar, down to earth, compassionate, and kind. He showed me how to work hard, stand strong, and practice tolerance. He taught me the importance of getting up every day to see to the work at hand and the importance of just going on even though I didn’t feel like it. He showed me the love of Jesus Christ. He led so many people to the Lord and never stopped trying to help those less fortunate than himself. He opened his home and his heart to us. Thank you to Kip, Anne, Louis, Katie, and Betsy for being willing to share Dr. Z. with all of us. We will see him again soon. Yvonne Patterson
