Who We Are

Second Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States. Our roots are in the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. Presbyterians have been a vital presence and contributor to the spiritual health of this nation from before its founding.

This congregation was chartered in 1830. Following a devastating fire in 1956, the church moved from its downtown location to its current location on Old Brownsboro Road. We currently have a membership of about 1300. While we are not diverse ethnically and racially, our membership represents the broad spectrum of social and political perspectives and loyalties and a variety of faith backgrounds and understandings. We celebrate a unity that is not uniformity, a gift that we believe is from the Holy Spirit.
