Director of Christian Education
First Presbyterian Church
Our mission is reflected in the vitality of our worship life, our music, our youth and our ministries. We are a church of approximately 700 members. We are blessed with strong spiritual leadership, strong lay leadership – in more than 300 families who are involved in the life of the church, and strong organizational leadership – in our department directors, managers, and staff. We are an urban church in an historic building; because of our location and our long-time role in the community, we characterize ourselves as in “the heart of the city.” We draw members from throughout the Quad Cities, a progressive community of 250,000 people in Davenport and Bettendorf, IA, and Rock Island and Moline, IL – all built on the banks of the Mississippi River. In 2016, we completed a successful church-wide envisioning exercise; we refer to ourselves as a church with God-sized dreams.
