grow, ask questions, have doubts and walk with others. We lovingly refer to ourselves
as “Soulful Misfits”.
As Pastor, you will receive support of a community of believers, doubters, thinking
doers and pray-ers who are changing lives in visible ways.
For example:
Living Waters Contemplative Life Center provides spiritual expansion through classes,
retreats and healing arts practitioners.
Divine Intervention Ministry now supports people without homes with nine connected
ministries throughout the year.
Arts Science Literacy Camp provides educational ministry for disadvantaged children
through innovative ‘camp’ formats.
Another Tippe annual project is “Tippe Gardens” which includes 38 raised garden beds
as well as a rooftop garden. Collectively, the gardens provide more than 3500 pounds
of vegetables annually. These veggies are given to an organization that distributes
them to families in need.
As a member of PCUSA, Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church is a welcoming, affirming
congregation blessing all in life…in marriage and in singleness and in leadership.
If all of this sounds exciting to you, please prayerfully ponder your spiritual career
path toward us.
