Pastor – First Presbyterian Church, Hartford CT
Located just beyond the golden glow of the CT State Capitol and next to the bright lights of The Bushnell Performing Arts Center lies Hartford CT’s true gem, the First Presbyterian Church of Hartford. Our impressive historic building is a blend of Gothic and Romanesque architecture; our impressive congregation is a blend of many cultures, including Scottish, Jamaican, African, and LGBTQIA+ people. We describe our church family as small but mighty. And like a family, we eat together a lot! We have about 100 members with an average of about 50 in worship. We rejoice in our urban setting and are looking for expanded ways to open our doors and our ministries to our city. We strive to practice a theology of abundance as we continue to experience God’s generosity of gifts in our midst.
We seek an energetic and creative pastor who can foster a relationship of mutual trust; demonstrates imagination and possibility; values and appreciates diversity and multiculturalism; is genuinely welcoming toward all people; and has a commitment to social justice and local and global mission. Our church is active in Presbyterian Promise and supportive of LGBTQIA+ initiatives, including More Light Presbyterians.
