Welcome to the Philadelphia Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America! This site is for prospective candidates for gospel ministry, members of the Presbytery, officers in training, and just for people who are curious about the Presbytery and the PCA.
September 21, 2019 Stated Meeting — 8:00 am at Liberti Church of the River Wards, 2424 E. York Street, Philadelphia PA 19125
Our vision is to see Philadelphia saturated with Gospel-centered churches so that many people come to Christ and together communities are transformed.
We will bond together as Philadelphia PCA churches to plant and support the development of Gospel-centered churches that will reproduce themselves, engage in a ministry of word and deed for the transformation of their particular communities, and participate in cooperative ministries, all to accomplish what can only happen in connection with others.
The Candidates and Interns Team will meet on Wednesday 8/7 from 9am-1pm in preparation for the 9/21/19 presbytery meeting. Applications may be found here. We are always receiving new applications, but Friday 8/2 is the application deadline to be interviewed at the 8/7 meeting. All applications and inquiries may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
