The Presbyterian Center, located in downtown Louisville, KY, houses the national offices of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)


A modern, 300,000-square-foot office facility, the Presbyterian Center was made possible by the donation of two former warehouses. Local architect James Walters, in collaboration with Nolan and Nolan, and Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum (HOK), created a dramatic, 97-foot high atrium that joins the two previous structures.


The creation of one new building out of two old ones is symbolic of the reunion that formed the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in 1983. The Presbyterian Center was dedicated in October of 1988. A major addition to the Center came in September 1995, with the completion of a chapel.


The Presbyterian Center houses four of the church's six national offices: The Office of the General Assembly, the General Assembly Council, the Presbyterian Publishing Corporation, and the Presbyterian Investment & Loan Program.  The other national offices are the Board of Pensions in Philadelphia, PA, and the Presbyterian Foundation, located across the Ohio River in Jeffersonville, IN.


Much of the work that takes place inside the Presbyterian Center provides assistance and resources to individuals, local congregations, and middle governing bodies of the denomination. Besides the 500 people working in the Center, the Presbyterian Church has more than 800 people working with more than 100 partner churches on every continent.


Employees of the Presbyterian Center are also active in the local community. By participating in local fund-raising and community events, they are committed to helping Louisville reach its highest potential.
