Previous Pastors of Springfield Presbyterian Church

     Of the 35 or more pastors who have served this church, several were ordained and began their ministry here. Many served notably, including Nathan H. Hall. He was a student supply in 1808 and was called full-time by the United Congregations of Springfield and Hardin's Creek in 1811. His pastorate lasted 12 years and the membership grew from 42 to 87 members.
     After the Rev. Hall resigned, the Rev. David Proctor served the churches until April 1825. Rev. Samuel Findley and Rev. Samuel K. Sneed served briefly.
