Our History

Spanish Fort Presbyterian Church was organized in 1960 when a small group of Christians on the Eastern Shore began gathering in their homes to worship.  In early 1961 the group, by then known as Faith Presbyterian Fellowship, was meeting in the Old Spanish Fort Motel.  On December 3, 1961, Mobile Presbytery established the Fellowship as a church, with 60 charter members.  Past ministers at SFPC and their years of service are as follows:
  • 1962-1969 - Rev. Harold Regan, Pastor
  • 1970-1993 - Rev. Pierre Burns, Pastor
  • 1988-1995 - Rev. David Delph, Associate Pastor
  • 1994-1998 - Rev. Dr. Thomas Lovell, Pastor
  • 1996-1999 - Rev. Mark Mueller, Associate Pastor
  • 1998-2000 - Rev. John Boyer, Interim Pastor
  • 2001-2005 - Rev. Anghaarad Teague, Associate Pastor
  • 2006-2009  Monnie Anderson, CLP

  • 2005-2012  Rev. Bert Tuggle, Parish Associate

  • 2000-2012 - Rev. Dr. Julian Walthall, Pastor
  • 2012-2013 - Rev. Nathan Wheeler, Interim Pastor
  • 2013-2014 - Rev. Bert Tuggle, Stated Supply Pastor 
The first unit of the building, including an award-winning Chapel, was completed in the Fall of 1963.  The Fellowship Hall was completed in 1976, the east and west wings of our educational facilities in 1985, and a new Sanctuary in 1987.  Jewels were added to the crown when beautiful stained glass windows, designed and built entirely by volunteers, were dedicated in 1988.
