McKeesport Presbyterian Church was formed in a merger of Immanuel United Presbyterian Church and Central Presbyterian Church on July 1, 2009. The worship site chosen for all activities was the former Central building on Versailles Avenue. The former Immanuel building was sold to another religious organization. Both historic congregations have had a long and productive presence in McKeesport with an interconnected history. Immanuel United Presbyterian Church can trace its history to the founding of the city. It was created as a merger of the First Presbyterian Church and the Walnut United Presbyterian Church in 1968, worshiping at the site of the First Presbyterian Church. That property was reserved for a house of worship by John McKee, the founder of McKeesport, in 1795. Central Presbyterian Church was organized in 1891 as a mission Sabbath school outreach by the First Presbyterian Church. The present building was built in three stages. The Chapel area was completed in 1893; the Sanctuary was completed in 1917; and the Educational Wing was completed in 1955. We are an outreach and mission church sponsoring many programs throughout the community and our Presbytery.

McKeesport Presbyterian Church welcomes you! We are a caring and diverse group who are united in Jesus Christ. We seek to serve our community and share the love of God in both word and deed.

Won't you join us?

Welcome to Our New Pastor!

We are happy to welcome our new pastor, Reverend James P. (Jim) Leuenberger and his wife, Pamela (Pam) to both McKeesport and our church family. Jim has been a pastor in the PC(USA) for the past 31 years and comes to us from Grove City, PA where he was serving as an Interim Pastor. Jim and Pam have four children: Andy, Josiah, Sam, and Grace. The entire Leuenberger family enjoy running and are avid Pittsburgh sports fans.

Jim’s primary areas of focus in ministry are preaching, teaching, small group ministry, pastoral care, and helping churches and presbyteries build their capacity for engagement in God’s global mission. He has been active in taking part in children’s and youth ministries in the churches he has served, and has also always enjoyed ministering to the older members of his congregations, finding much in their faith and lives that has humbled and inspired him. Jim and Pam and the entire Leuenberger family are extremely excited about their move back to the Pittsburgh and for this opportunity to become part of the McKeesport Presbyterian Church family!
