Welcoming Our Senior Pastor

With joy and thanksgiving, Shadyside Presbyterian Church is delighted to present the Reverend Austin Crenshaw Shelley as our twelfth senior pastor. In this video introduction, members of the church’s Pastor Nominating Committee offer insights into the search process that, guided by God, ultimately led them to identify Rev. Shelley as our next minister. Also during this first video in a series of conversations with Rev. Shelley, she shares what excites her about ministry at Shadyside and how she discerned her call to this ministry, including the moment she first stepped into Shadyside’s pulpit and felt at home. We hope you, too, will feel at home with our warm and welcoming community of faith. We invite you to join us, and we look forward to Shadyside’s next chapter under Rev. Shelley’s leadership.

Transfigured Christ

Mosaic By Rudolf Sheffler, 1938

When Rudolf Sheffler's majestic mosaic of the Transfigured Christ in the apse of our chancel was dedicated on Easter Sunday 1938, it became in many ways not only a visual focal point of our sanctuary but also symbolic of our 150 years of faith and life together as the people of God! It is a powerful metaphor of our Christian identity, purpose and unity!
