Our Interim Pastor Rev. Dr. Matthew Covington

Matthew Covington became the Interim Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in June 2024. He has recently retired as the Pastor of The Presbyterian Church in Bowling Green, Kentucky, a position he held for 21 years. Matthew has observed that one may retire from a particular ministry, but the call to ministry remains. The opportunities at First Presbyterian, Owensboro, are consequently something Matthew sees as a great blessing at this particular time.

Matthew and Ann met as students at Davidson College. They have two daughters: Claire, and Elizabeth, and three grandsons. Matthew’s special interests for the church include demonstrating welcome, acceptance, and service as some of the various expressions of God’s gracious love.

Please make yourselves known to Matthew and to Ann, as we enjoy this experience together.
