First Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville
Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Jacksonville, Florida. We hope you will take a few minutes to explore our website and see what we are all about, here in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. Our vision is To Know and Serve Christ. Our Mission is to make disciples and equip them for ministry. In everything we do, we make it our aim to point all people and all ministries to Jesus. New visitors will want to take a moment to read more about our Core Values. Rev. Robert L. Morris, Jr., the staff and congregation of FPC invite you to join us for weekly worship, special events and/or services throughout the year.
Adam Paul Williams will be participating in our Worship Service on May 19 followed by a performance in the Sanctuary at 1:00PM. There is no admission charged for the concert. He pursues a passion and call to lead people in praise and worship. Williams said, “The focus of my latest project is on Jesus Christ. I want people to sit down and close their eyes and sense that they are at the throne of Christ.” Since age 4, he has known music was his true calling. After graduating from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas with a degree in music and kinesiology, he connected with a producer in Nashville and co-wrote songs for an independent album. That opportunity led to full-time ministry as a solo artist and has taken Williams across the country and around the globe leading worship at churches.
