In December 2017, the First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown welcomed our new pastor, Rev. Doris Chandler, who left her native state of Alabama to come to the Hudson Valley.
Rev. Chandler started her professional life as a teacher. For 28 years, she taught applied math and advanced placement courses in physics and chemistry for the Jefferson County School System in and near Birmingham, Alabama.
After making a life-changing decision to attend seminary, Rev. Chandler received her master of divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia, followed by her doctorate of ministry from Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Virginia. She was ordained in 1996.
Rev. Chandler succeeds Rev. Leslie Mott, who led FPCP for 13 years .
To contact Rev. Chandler, please call her at 845-857-9303, or email her at email@example.com.
