Mason City First Presbyterian Calls Rev. Dr. Kenneth “Kip” Murphy

Jul 25, 2023

Sunday, July 9, Mason City Presbyterian voted to call Rev. Dr. Kenneth “Kip” Murphy as their next pastor. Congratulations to Mason City!

Prior to Pastor “Kip” being called to ministry he was a professor of biochemistry at the University of Iowa. His first call was in Iowa and recently served in Michigan. He loves the idea from John Chrysostom that “a church is a hospital for sinners.”

Pastor Kip and his wife Lee have three grown children. Their hobbies are snowshoeing, reading, and cooking.
