Dr. Preston Smith joined First Presbyterian in June 2017 to serve as the "bridge" interim minister as we went through the process of calling an interim pastor, and now serves as our Parish Associate.  In this new role, he will assist our Interim Pastor with pastoral care needs. He has served as a pastor at several churches over his 50 year career as an ordained minister and served as Director of the Pastoral Care Department at Nash General Hospital. He retired from Nash General in 2005 and was then called as the installed pastor at Falkland Presbyterian Church prior to retirement. Preston and his wife Judy, a retired educator, have three children and five active grandchildren. They enjoy visiting their families in Raleigh, Myrtle Beach, SC and Salt Lake City, Utah. Additionally, they enjoy riding motorcycles, and Preston enjoys woodworking and even finds time for a little golf!
