Dr. Todd B. Jones, Pastor

Todd Jones came to serve as Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Nashville in March 2002.  He is the youngest of three children and grew up in a loving family in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, a small town outside of Pittsburgh.  He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1976, where he majored in classics and political science.  Upon graduation from Pittsburgh, he went to Princeton Theological Seminary, graduating in 1979 and was awarded a Fellowship, which he used to do an additional year of graduate study in theology at Edinburgh University’s New College.  Since 1997, he has been a member of the Board of Trustees of Princeton Seminary.  He has served three congregations prior to coming to Nashville.

In 1980, Todd was ordained to serve as Associate Pastor for Youth Ministry and Education at The Presbyterian Church in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.  In 1984, he accepted the call as Pastor to Westminster Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina.  In seven years, the congregation grew from 600 to over 1100 members, completing three building programs to accommodate the growth.  In 1991, Todd was called to serve as Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he served for eleven years.  The congregation grew from 2000 to 2800 members in those years, and mission giving and involvement multiplied many times over.  The church lives by finding a passion for the Gospel, resulting in joyous mission involvement in the world.

Todd is married to the former Connie King, a Nashville native, and they have four children and four grandchildren.  Todd plays golf and has a passion for baseball and American history.

“The glory of God is a human being fully alive,” said Irenaeus. This is Todd’s aim in all things!
