PCPC held its first worship service on May 26, 1991, at Highland Park High School, with about 1,500 worshippers in attendance. On June 9 we began worshiping as guests in the Highland Baptist Church Sanctuary and alternated worship and Sunday School classes with our gracious hosts. After sharing and leasing the church for over two years, PCPC purchased the property in early 1994 and later added an education building.
On June 23, 1991, members voted to name this local body of Christ, Park Cities Presbyterian Church. Our first senior pastor, Skip Ryan, was called by a unanimous congregational vote on December 22, 1991. He served until 2006.
On May 11, 2008, Mark Alan Davis was installed as our senior pastor.
Our first PCPC service had 1,500 worshipers. But did you know, PCPC had 1,824 charter members that first year from 1991-1992? Below are stories from some of these charter members. These interviews serve as a reminder of the faithfulness of the Lord in starting PCPC. Each of these played a very important role in forming the church starting with a deep calling to start a new church. From the first service at Highland Park High School to purchasing Highland Baptist Church where PCPC is now, the Lord’s hand was clearly seen in every step. Listen to these members share what they remember of how PCPC was formed and ultimately how the Lord has led this church over the years.
