ABOUT TENTH: Tenth Church occupies an historic house of worship. It was founded in 1829 in Center City Philadelphia. Its current building at 17th and Spruce dates to 1856. In such a setting, it is appropriate to worship in the great traditions of Tenth’s Presbyterian heritage. It maintains its reputation both for excellence in music and, above all, for profound, Biblical, and expository preaching. Its ministers are renowned for long tenures of service to God in Tenth’s impressive pulpit, just five in its long history, each battling mightily for the truth of the faith in his day. Originally an affluent white congregation, today it represents every ethnic, socio-economic and educational background, including international scholars. It is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), an evangelical denomination.
