Pastor/Head of Staff | First Presbyterian in the City of New York

We are writing on behalf the Pastor Nominating Committee at First Presbyterian Church in the City of New York. As part of our search for a new Pastor/Head of Staff we are reaching out to a number of seminaries, caucuses, and organizations looking for nominations, in the hope that you might be interested in assisting us in this process.

We are an historic worship community, rooted in and invigorated by New York City, and, more specifically, Greenwich Village – a vibrant, progressive, global community of diverse faiths and intellectual traditions, needs, hopes, talents, and aspirations. We are currently seeking a Pastor/Head of Staff to provide spiritual leadership, pastoral care, administrative oversight, and organizational direction to a staff and congregation of more than 1000 members with a broad emphasis on worship, music, preaching, education, stewardship, mission, outreach, development and involvement of membership, and programs to address the needs of the congregation. Specifically, we are interested in candidates with experience leading a complex, multi-staff congregation as Pastor/Head of Staff or equivalent. (Experience with a large and/or urban congregation a plus.) The ideal candidate will possess a strong understanding of, and experience with, financial management and budgeting, and will be a graduate of a Seminary or Divinity School in the reformed tradition.

More details about our congregation and specific information about the call can be found on our website Nominations, self-referrals, and questions can also be sent directly to the Pastoral Nominating Committee at

Thank you for your time and assistance.
