TRINITY

God the Father who is the creator of all

Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior who redeems us

Holy Spirit our Sustainer who is God’s presence and power within us

Our church confesses the Scriptures to be the Word of God written, witnessing to God’s self-revelation.

Sacraments

We celebrate two sacraments:

 Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion)

These are two acts in which Jesus participated and instructed his disciples to observe and therefore we uphold them as holy sacraments.

Ministry Team

judi-steve-minDr. Judith Slater has served as the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Duquesne since her ordination in 1992. Prior to her ordination, Pastor Judi served for six years as the Youth Director at Korean Central Church of Pittsburgh.  She is a graduate of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, receiving her Masters of Divinity degree in 1991 and her Doctor of Ministry degree in 2001.

Pastor Judi is married to Stephen Slater, a funeral director, who also serves as an elder of the church.  They are the proud parents of three grown children.  Their daughter, Jennifer, is a licensed family therapist and is married to Matthew and they have given their parents the best gift ever, a granddaughter Ellie and a grandson Jack.  Steve and Judi have a son, Nicholas, who is a Regional Controller for Graham Packaging (and also serves as tech support to his mom who is technologically challenged) and is married to Jena.  Their son, Drew, is also a funeral director and works with his dad (often serving as a marriage ref for Steve and Judi since he is around them so much) and is married to Regina and they have provided the latest best gift ever, a grandson Brett.

In addition to her ministry in Duquesne, Pastor Judi serves on the Shared Ministry Team at Lincoln Place Presbyterian Church.  She loves to spend time with her family, especially with her grandchildren. She also likes to read, watch HGTV, do morning yoga and take evening walks.

Pastor Judi has a passion for youth ministry and enjoys helping young people and adults come to know the Lord, grow in their faith and live their lives as disciples of Jesus Christ. She has a special interest in ministry in economically challenged communities and her hope for the ministry in Duquesne is that we can lift up the positive things that God is doing and join in with God’s kingdom work in Duquesne. Her joy is in the Lord and she is grateful for all that God has done for her!
