Francis Makemie is considered to be the founding father of American
Presbyterianism. Though he didn't labor alone, it was due largely
to his vision and ministry that the first presbytery was founded in
America in 1706.
To commemorate the 300th anniversary of this momentous event, we have
commissioned a fine new portrait of Rev. Francis Makemie by southwest
artist and Presbyterian Elder, Mike Mahon. To purchase your
copy, please visit our online store.
