Announcing IPC's New Pastor

Independent Presbyterian Church joyfully announces its eighth Pastor-Head of Staff in the congregation’s 105 year history. The congregation unanimously voted Sunday, May 2, to extend a call to Reverend Kevin J. Long.


Welcome Long Family

The Long family arrived in Birmingham this summer, and Kevin, Rebecca, James, Jessica, and Katelyn are settling into their new home. Kevin is spending his days at IPC setting up his office and getting to know the congregation and staff. He is working to plan out sermons and worship services through the end of the year to be able to hit the pulpit running on Sunday, Sept. 12. He is very excited to start preaching to his new church family.


Kevin, Rebecca, James (17), Jessica (14), Katelyn (13), and Biscuit
