Hi everyone, thanks for visiting the the webpage of First Presbyterian Church of Montrose!

My name is Jason Clapper, and I'm the Pastor (or Teaching Elder) at the church.  I grew up in Susquehanna county, and my family and I are returning to the area in July to begin our ministry with the  wonderful people of Montrose.  I graduated from Mansfield University in 2008 with a double major in Communication and Philosophy and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary with a Masters in Divinity.  I'm currently pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry from Columbia Theological Seminary in Atlanta.  I've been ordained since 2011, and Montrose FPC is my second call.

In my spare time, I like to play guitar, read, and spend time with the family.  My wife and I met through Campus Crusade for Christ in college while she was on staff (I like to say she's been my "boss" for a long time!)  We have a three year old named Charlotte and a one year old named Lydia who were both born in Georgia.  

My prayer when you come to FPCM is that you will hear the voice of God.  God has spoken at many times, and in many different ways, and we believe that God is still speaking through His scripture and through His Holy Spirit.  If you're looking for a church home, come and visit.  We welcome one and all, and we pray that God's love would be very present for you in the people of Montrose.  Shalom!
