A Community of Faith Celebrating a Loving God

Living, sharing and teaching the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ

The centrality of Jesus Christ is the foundation of all we do

For over 120 years, we have been serving Jesus in the heart of Fort Myers. From the beginning until now we have sought to be a place where people can grow in a life centered on Jesus. We study the Word, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together in love. We seek to become fully devoted and spiritually driven disciples of Jesus Christ.

We invite you to learn more about First Presbyterian Church, plan a visit, but mostly, we invite you to be a part of our family here.

Meet Our Senior Pastor

Paul has been FPC’s Senior Pastor since 2010, when he moved to Florida with his wife, Sheryl, and his three daughters, Rachel, Sarah, and Lydia.

A native Michigander born to Dutch immigrants, Paul spent his pre-seminary days running the family nursery business and writing engineering software. He earned his Masters of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry from Reformed Theological Seminary.

Some of his simple joys in life include classic films, camping, cats and his grandson, Calihan.
