About Us


Photo Church PicnicSecond Presbyterian Church was founded in 1882 with 14 charter members. It now has a membership of over 1,800, and is the largest Presbyterian Church in Arkansas. As a community of worship, inquiry, fellowship, and care, members and visitors worship together in a spirit of reverence and joy, study together with reasoned and reflective faith, and work together for compassion, justice and peace in the world.

Fully twenty-five percent of the church’s annual budget goes to serve those in need outside the walls of Second Presbyterian Church—locally, nationally and internationally. Led by a staff of four ordained ministers, a Church Educator, a Youth Director, two Young Adult Ministers, a Music Director and Associate Music Director, Second provides a variety of opportunities for Christian nurture and service for children, youth, and adults.
