About The College Ministry

The College Ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale serves both college students and their families through faith development, pastoral care, and fellowship.  Our goal is to provide care and love while continuing to reach out to our students as they journey outside our safe harbor and the Broward County borders.


Known as “The Port” the College Ministry maintains a connection with students who leave the Fort Lauderdale community to go away to school and those who remain local. With more than 80 students attending schools around the nation, the College Ministry remains engaged with them and lets them know that they are cared for.

The College Ministry includes a team of parents known as the “Port Connection” who communicate with the students throughout the year, and touch base with them monthly.
