Making disciples of Jesus Christ, it’s a simple goal with enormous impact.We understand that real ministry happens in real life, which is why we seek to be out in the community where we can make a difference. The Youth Ministry at First Pres employs a relational model, and a number of volunteers to mentor and walk alongside our students and families.
In September 2013, First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale opened its newly renovated Youth Center. Spanning 3,000 square feet, on two floors, The Harbor at the Hoch Youth Center is located on the First Presbyterian Church campus in the heart of downtown Ft. Lauderdale in the quaint, picturesque Colee Hammock neighborhood. This newly renovated space provides a safe and welcoming environment for youth to socialize, study and interact in featuring spaces for small and large group gatherings and a media room with all the latest technology.
