Jobs & Internships

Working at Central Presbyterian Church is rooted in that same fundamental rhythm of the Gospel. We are a team that is increasingly aware of our dependency on Christ, and our inability to minister to God’s people without Him. We study together, pray together, and labor together. We serve a congregation of faithful and committed believers, and we work to reach our surrounding community with the beautiful, life-giving message of the Gospel. We are experiencing profound Gospel renewal during our current season of ministry.

About Central

Originally founded in 1844, Central Presbyterian Church is a testimony to God’s faithfulness. Through periods of great renewal as well as deep struggle, it is truly only by the grace of God that Central continues to flourish as a beacon of the Gospel in the St. Louis region. We are sinful people, redeemed by the finished work of Jesus Christ, being made new by His saving work in us as we wait upon the final restoration of all things. We are committed to the faithful preaching of this fundamental truth, and it is the core of who we are as a church.
