State College Presbyterian Church to Install New Pastor
State College Presbyterian Church will formally install Rev. Dean Lindsey at a special service on Oct. 20.
Lindsey was selected as the new pastor out of more than 400 applicants following the retirement of Rev. Chuck Curley in December 2010.
“I am so pleased about this church’s commitment to college ministry,” Lindsey said. “My first priority of my ministry will be to get to know all of the members of the church — young, old, and in between. There’s such a wide breadth of experiences and backgrounds among the members here.”
For the last six years, Lindsey was the Head of Staff at Community Presbyterian Church in Claredon Hills, Ill. He has also served at churches in Salem, Va.; Huston, Texas; and Monroe, La.
Lindsey is a native of New Orleans, and a graduate of Vanderbilt University, Yale Divinity School — where he met his wife, Peggy — and Columbia Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
The State College Presbyterian Church was founded more than 100 years ago in order to serve the spiritual needs of Penn State students.
Sunday morning services are offered at 9 a.m. and 11:15 each week. Childcare is provided for the 9 a.m. service. The church is located at 132 W. Beaver Ave. in State College.
