Rev. Dr. Vincent Kolb Elected PIIN President

At its November Board Meeting, PIIN elected Rev. Dr. Vincent Kolb, Pastor of Sixth Presbyterian Church as its new President.

A native of southern California, Vincent Kolb heard a call to ministry midway through pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English at California State University Fullerton. Upon completion of that degree in 1982, and after a stint as a Youth Director at a Presbyterian Church, Vincent enrolled and graduated from San Francisco Theological Seminary in 1987. While at SFTS, Vincent worked with inner city youth in the Mission District of San Francisco. He served as the Co-Pastor of Bethel Presbyterian Church (Denver, CO) and El Buen Pastor Presbyterian Church (Brighton, CO) from 1985-1993. He served the first Presbyterian Church of Dumas TX, from 1993 to 2001, during which time he completed a Doctor of Ministry in Parish Revitalization from McCormick Theological Seminary in 1996. For the following thirteen years, Vincent was the Head of Staff at South Jacksonville Presbyterian Church in Florida. He became Pastor of Sixth Church in September 2014. He is the proud father of Erik, Joe and Vincent. And the even more proud grandfather of Emily, Eleanor, and Evelyn.
