Dr Pender unnamed
Dr. William C. Pender

Dr. William C. Pender has been an ordained Presbyterian minister for over 40 years, with pastoral service in North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee.  His most recent service was as the Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, TN (12 years); his longest pastorate (18 years) was at our daughter church here in Rock Hill: Oakland Avenue Presbyterian Church.  His educational background is as follows: B.A., Dartmouth College; M.Div., Columbia Theological Seminary; and Ph.D., Duke University.  He and his wife Sheri have three adult children (2 by birth; one by adoption) and three grandchildren.  He is also a baptized child of First Presbyterian Church, Rock Hill, though he was raised from 5 years old on in Marietta, GA.  He is honored to assist this congregation in transitioning to our next installed pastor.  While looking forward to returning to “retirement status,” he counts it a blessing and a privilege to care and love FPC, Rock Hill, in this interim pastorate.
