Meet our Lead Pastor Rob Howard


I’d like to personally welcome you to First Presbyterian Church! As pastor, my goal is to connect head to heart, to deepen everyone’s faith, to make that emotional connection to not only WHAT matters, but WHY it matters.

Our theology teaches us that no matter what, God is in control. God wins. Always. We are Christ’s. In the middle of an angry and chaotic world, we must trust in God’s will – not only in our living, but also in our dying.

At FPC Marion, we study books of the Bible. Some say that makes us “intellectual.” Okay, but we work hard to apply the Good News to our everyday lives. Because that’s what matters. It’s what gives us hope.

I invite you to come grow with us. Experience First Presbyterian. We hope your family will become part of our family.
