Barry Cressman, President

Originally from Oyster Bay, New York, Barry made his way to Crawford County through his service to the Presbyterian Church.  After completing his education, culminating in a Doctor of Ministry from the University of Chicago, Barry became the Senior Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Titusville.  Throughout his tenure at First Presbyterian, and into his retirement, Barry has served on numerous boards including the Titusville YMCA, Woodlawn Cemetery, Oil Region Alliance, and D.S. Standard Foundation. In his free time, he enjoys golf, reading and traveling.

Barry was drawn to the Community Foundation’s Board because he values the Foundation as the best possible way to make one’s personal philanthropic contributions now, and after one passes, a vital and everlasting instrument for giving.
