Who We Are

Our Team & Leadership

First Presbyterian Church is led collaboratively by a team of called leaders who work together to ensure we are doing our best to “cultivate hearts for Jesus from the heart of downtown.” We believe that all ministry (paid and lay ministry) is a calling that comes from God, who empowers each of us to unique service according to our gifts and personalities. By working together, we maximize the potential of these gifts for Kingdom-building effort!

The Staff are paid individuals with unique gifts who work together to maintain the day-to-day operations of the church. The staff works together on everything from planning events to keeping the building maintained to organizing worship services & classes to all the behind-the-scenes tasks that keep our congregation moving.
The Session is a group of twelve elected lay leaders who represent the church as a spiritual “board of directors.” Each of these elders work on a three-year term within a specific ministry team to ensure our mission and vision goals are being met and implemented. All ministry teams report to the Session via the work of these leaders. The Session meets monthly (or more frequently, if needed), and has the ultimate authority on all church decisions.

Paul Fullylove’s favorite verse is John 13:34, which says, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” This verse highlights the importance of love and how it should be at the center of our relationships with others. Jesus, who lived a life of selfless love and service, is instructing us to follow his example and to love one another in the same way that he loves us. This verse is a call to action and a reminder of the kind of love that should characterize our lives as followers of Jesus.
