Advent Presbyterian Church is a wonderful group of Christians in Cordova (Memphis), Tennessee. It was founded by one of the nicest people you will ever know, Rev. Dr. Dave Schieber, who served as Senior Pastor until 2010. Dave created a warm and loving congregation, full of life and full of fun. We like to say that we are Christians first, Presbyterians second, and always sharing God’s love as best we know how. Think of us as an authentically Presbyterian church of Mere Christians.
In recent years, Advent has been blessed with the people and ability to engage in mission from our Campus, to Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee, to Ghana, Honduras, India, Mexico, and the Philippines. Advent truly qualifies as a missional church, because mission is the core of what we do. The mission begins close by as we worship and grow together, but it extends to the ends of the earth.
We are a multi-site congregation, which our older campus on Germantown Road in Cordova, Tennessee and our newer campus in Arlington, Tennessee, just a few miles east of our older location. A few years ago, we merged with the Arlington Presbyterian Church to form a multi-site congregation. I refer to the two campuses as “Advent@Cordova” and “Advent@Arlington.”
