Who We Are

Who We Are….      
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has approximately 2 million members, 10,577 congregations and 21,000 ordained ministers. Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Our heritage, and much of what we believe, began with the French lawyer John Calvin (1509-1564), whose writings crystallized much of the Reformed thinking that came before him.
