Dr. Andrew Todd Taylor became our 18th pastor in 1916. Born in Antrim, Ireland, in 1866, he came with his family to settle in Pittsburgh at the age of about fifteen. In l889, he graduated from Grove City College and for one year became a high school principal in Sewickley, PA. The next year he attended Western Theological Seminary and then transferred to Princeton Seminary, graduating in 1893. His first pastorate was at Mount Prospect Church in Philadelphia (1896-1908). He achieved an A.M. higher degree from Princeton in 1901. Grove City awarded him a doctorate degree in 1906. Two additional pastorates before coming to York were in Toronto (1908-1912) and Trenton (1912 -1916).

His three years and three months pastorate here in York included patriotic midweek services during World War I, interceding for our cause and praying for world peace. During his pastorate he inaugurated The Visitor, a weekly bulletin mailed to church members from 1917-1934. Dr. Taylor was also a co-founder of the Inter-Church Federation of York. In 1919 he attended the World’s Brotherhood Federation in London and served as secretary for the United States Committee. Following his sudden death in December, the Session Minutes declared: “By his cogent message we were quickened to honor God and to do good to men.” He is buried in our churchyard along with his wife, Lauretta Brownson Taylor, who survived him for forty-one years.
