The Presbyterian Church (USA), abbreviated PC(USA), is a denomination of 9,041 congregations and 1,300,000 active members. The denomination is organized by geographic regions into Synods. Pleasant Run Presbyterian belongs to Synod of the Covenant, which is further divided into local councils, or Presbytery’s. The Presbytery of Cincinnati is a resource for the PC(USA) churches in our area, to create and nurture vibrant communities of Word and Sacrament.

All churches have been truly blessed by our mutual understanding of the Christian faith. Our coalition partners are:
