Pastor Emeritus

Rev. Sam Estes

The Rev. Sam Estes began his pastorate at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church in 1962. Pastor Sam has a long history of compassionate ministry. After only a few minutes of visting with Sam, one realizes he is filled with grace and wisdom. Pastor Sam has a passion for the elderly and those whom are often forgotton. Pastor Sam served this church as Senior Pastor for 24 years and was bestowed the honor of Pastor Emeritus. Sam still worships with us, visits with members, and serves the community in various ways. During our latest Pastoral search, Rev. Estes was a Godsend. We are humbled and grateful to have Pastor Sam as part of our staff.
