Park Street Church (“PSC”), founded in 1809, is a large thriving church in downtown Boston, with a membership of 900 and about 30 staff members. We are a diverse community of people whose mission is to make disciples of Jesus who become like him together. We believe and are united by the good news that Jesus is Lord. Our common life together is fueled by the joy that God has been so good to sinful and broken people like us, bringing us forgiveness, healing, and salvation—new life! Our response to God’s gift is to follow Jesus on the way of the cross, the way of love. This means that our life together—embodied in nine Regional Fellowships—consists of growing in loving God, loving one another, and loving our neighbors, and we regularly feed upon the word of God, the Bible, to inform and guide us in this way of love. We are committed to life-giving biblical proclamation, to transformative relationships with one another across the diverse generations and ethnicities that are found in our community, and to faithful worship of the triune God. Our mission and life are shaped by our location in the heart of the city of Boston and by a longtime passion for mission across the world.

Our staff are committed to serving one another as we serve Christ and to growing to greater maturity in Jesus. We meet weekly for a time of prayer and engagement in the Scripture. In our teammates we value godliness, collaboration, excellence, courage, and a commitment to healthy relationships.
