David and Teresa Schwartz
David and Teresa Schwartz have been our Senior Co-Ministers since 2013. They work for a vision of church in which inner growth and development goes hand in hand with work for justice in the world. They are here to build a church where each person who comes on a Sunday morning needing relief from the whirlwind of life and shelter from the storm can rest and recharge. They are here to build a church where conscience is honed and we remember our deep values. And they are here to build a church for the future — that we take this beautiful old place and rebuild it for the generations to come.

Rev. Dr. David Arksey
The concept of “Ministry at Large” refers to ministering to people outside the immediate community of a particular church. First Church has a long tradition of Ministry at Large, going back to The Rev. Robert Collyer in 1859.
