First Presbyterian Church of Canton, IL is located in a rural community of 14,000. Our rural setting offers a lower cost of living, yet we are in easy driving distance of opportunities for entertainment, cultural and sports events. We are 25 miles SW of Peoria, IL and halfway between Chicago, IL and St. Louis, MO. Our mission is “To live by faith, to be known by love, and to be a voice of hope” and we continually work towards this vision. Our church congregation is multi-generation and approximately 100+, with an average Sunday attendance of 50-60. It is our hope to continue providing quality ministry to our current congregation while also developing and implementing a plan to attract more members and reach out to younger people. We enjoy a traditional liturgical expression of our faith but are open to development of new ways of reaching those who have yet to come to us. We are prayerfully seeking a first ordained or experienced pastor who creates a good partnership with church, congregation, staff, and community.
