Are you our next pastor?

First Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, is hiring.

First Presbyterian Church (FPC), a PC(USA) congregation in the historic district of Lexington, Kentucky, is seeking applications and nominations for our next senior pastor. We seek a candidate with experience as a senior pastor and head of staff or an associate pastor prepared to undertake a senior role in their next call. The successful candidate will bring strong pastoral skills along with administrative experience overseeing staff and maintaining our beautiful facility.

FPC is a theologically progressive church that will benefit from a pastor who brings a dynamic presence in the pulpit with inspirational and challenging sermons to a highly educated congregation. Music and the arts permeate and shape our liturgy, Christian formation efforts and outreach. The voices of our choir are often as important as the sermon itself. While our demographic is relatively homogenous, we seek inclusivity, understanding, and an acceptance of diverse perspectives.

We are actively using the PC(USA)’s Church Leadership Connection (CLC) as a resource. Please see the below link to the PC(USA) Ministry Discernment Profile (MDP 11354) and the senior pastor and head of staff position description as well as the link to FPC’s website providing information specifically for prospective candidates.

See our Ministry Discernment Profile, which includes a position description, at the following link:

If you would like more information or would prefer to express your interest outside of using the CLC, please email our PNC at We would value the opportunity to get acquainted and discuss the FPC position in more detail with you.
