Westminster Presbyterian Church, Enid, OK
Member of Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC)
Westminster Presbyterian Church is a relatively new church, born of the need to seek a new direction from our original “mother” church. Very challenging has been the departure of our most recent pastor and the loss of attendees and membership, in particular, young families. We have maintained a functioning church by wearing different hats to keep our church body alive and well. God has now provided us with a wonderful interim pastor who is re-energizing our congregation and bringing joy to our hearts.
We are determined to locate a pastor who will continue energizing our current congregation through preaching and teaching, help us create and offer generational programs that will attract new members of all ages, encourage development of excellence and diversity in our music ministry, and guide us in cultivating our own talents to create a future of furthering His Kingdom.
We need a pastor who would love our family friendly town; one who would love to engage in the opportunities afforded in a community of this size; one who would appreciate the culture and generational cultures in this close knit small city; one who would choose to call Enid home and become part of our thriving and vibrant city on the Plains.
