Job Type: Full-Time Posted: 1 year ago Denomination: Other
First Presbyterian Midland has been worshipping and growing together in West Texas since 1885. Through generations of booms and busts, Midlanders at FPC have been holding fast to the one thing that is sure and unchanging, the love of God shown to us in Jesus Christ. As our community members have explored the depths of the earth for some of the richest natural resources in the world, we have sought to explore the depths of the soul, growing deeper in our love for Jesus and for one another, finding the truly abundant life only God can give. Gifted with visionary leaders throughout our history, FPC’s campus and heart has grown, and today we are known for offering hospitality to our community, a warm welcome and 1000s of soft drinks to the students across the street at Midland High, and spiritual and financial support to those who face life’s biggest challenges in our own city and across the world.
We are affiliated with the Presbyterian denomination called ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
