About Moorings Presbyterian Church
Moorings Presbyterian Church is a dynamic congregation that prays to see "Lives Transformed for Christ" in and through all that it does. Located in Naples, Florida, it experiences a regular expansion of its congregation during Season, when snowbirds flock to Florida. At the same time, it benefits from a steady core of families and other full-time residents who help to make this congregation vibrant all year round. Moorings has strong ministries for both children and youth, and also has its own preschool. We are strong in traditional worship and music styles and have also just launched a contemporary worship service. With respect to staff, we have two full-time pastors, one parish associate (thus semi-retired), both a children's and a youth director, a contemporary worship director, and 6 staff members who work in various aspects of administration, including finance, communications, and facilities management.
