Our History

In 1983, a handful of believers began meeting together for Bible study and prayer with an eye toward beginning a Reformed Presbyterian church in York.  In June of that year, York County native Don Waltermeyer joined the group as a regular preacher/teacher.  In December of 1983, the group voted to affiliate with the PCA.

Providence Presbyterian Church was organized as a particular church with Don Waltermyer as Pastor in February of 1986.  Pastor Andy Phillips was later called as Senior Pastor in 1995, and the church was greatly blessed by his ministry and leadership until his departure in January 2012.  Pastor Vince Wood, the current Senior Pastor, began his ministry in December 2012.


In its early days, Providence Presbyterian Church met in The Seventh Day Adventist Church building on Roosevelt Boulevard and Kenneth Road.  In 1989, five acres of land were purchased on Church Road.  After several attempts to break ground, construction began in September of 1996.  On March 16, 1997, the first worship service was held at our current location at 1215 Church Road.

In January of 2003, Providence sent out Associate Pastor Dale Buettner and ten families to begin a daughter church on the south side of York.  In 2011, the congregation moved into a permanent building on Cape Horn Road in York.  Reverend Erik Swanson is the current pastor.
