Rev. William Searight, Supply Pastor
William (Bill) Searight comes to our congregation from Northwest Louisiana, where he served three congregations, known collectively as the Presbyterian Churches of Plain Dealing, LA. A native of Texas, Bill grew up in the Richardson and attended Austin College in Sherman, TX. In June of 2006, after both received their Masters in Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary (Decatur, GA), Bill and his wife, Sarah Cooper Searight, moved to Center City Philadelphia, where Bill worked with children and youth as Director of Education at Old Pine Street Presbyterian Church. Sarah currently serves as Interim Associate Pastor for Congregational Care and Older Adult Ministry at Swarthmore Presbyterian Church, and the two live with their two daughters in Rose Valley, PA. In his free time, Bill is writing his first novel and preparing to run for his third marathon.
I am honored to stand with Flourtown Presbyterian and look to what comes next for this congregation: an end to transition and a new journey with a new pastor, whom God is already preparing for ministry here. In the meantime, I am ready to proclaim with you the good news of God’s love for Flourtown, for Southeast Pennsylvania, and for the whole world.
