Reverend John Constant, Pastor Emeritus

Reverend John Constant and his family moved to Muncie in 1962 when he became the founding pastor of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church.  After organizing and serving the rapidly growing congregation as pastor for twenty-five years he was honorably retired.  Then for ten years he served interimships at Anderson, Elwood, and Jonesboro.

John graduated from Findlay College, Winebrenner Seminary and McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago.  He was ordained by the Wabash Presbytery in August of 1947 in Jonesboro.

At ninety-nine years of age, one of John’s greatest joys is experiencing St. Andrews friendly atmosphere, music, and Biblically inspired messages, sitting beside his helpful and admired wife, Fran.
