For more than 140 years, First Presbyterian Church has ministered to members and friends in Port Townsend and surrounding communities.  Shortly after the Civil War, the Presbytery of Oregon decided to organize a church in Port Townsend.  At that time there were only two Presbyterian churches in the northwest -- the First Presbyterian Church of Seattle and a small church in the San Juan Islands.   Learn more.........

Our Pastor

The Rev. Paul R. Heins became pastor of First Pres in June 2015.  He brought to us 17 years of experience as a Presbyterian pastor, most recently in Logan, Utah, and previously in Long Branch, New Jersey.  He received his M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary and a B.A. in international affairs from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.    Read More
