We are a Christ-centered community of Faith, led by the Holy Spirit to share God's love with others.
We are a relaxed blend of traditional and modern elements, all united in bringing glory to God while binding us in lasting friendship.
Independently and through our local Presbytery, we contribute to community organizations dealing with poverty and hunger. Our main partners in mission are Interfaith Charities of South Lee and Mision Peniel.
Volunteerism is in the heart of our small church! everyone is welcome to offer their time and talents to leadership, organizational committees, small groups, musical ensembles, and mission work.

Meet the Estero Community Church Team
Meet Rev. Kevin Morris
Kevin was born in Leesburg, Florida where he was baptized at First Presbyterian Church. His family moved to Sarasota when he was five, where his parents, sister, and their families still live. They attended Pine Shores Presbyterian where he was very involved in the life of the church and made his profession of faith. During his second year of seminary, Kevin was blessed to meet Kim, a lifelong Presbyterian and a "Georgia Peach," who was an attorney and worked outside of Atlanta.
After graduation in 1992, Kim and Kevin married and answered the call to serve two yoked churches in Greensburg, Kentucky. The couple thrived while serving the Lord in Kentucky, and began a family - two children, Shannon and Joshua. For the next sixteen years Kevin balanced his life as a husband, father and minister.
Through those years, he was blessed to lead a wonderful congregation, move back to Florida, and become very involved in the Dade City community, where he set an example to spread the Christian faith outside the walls of the church through service and fellowship. Together, Kim and Kevin like walking and attending sporting events. They faithfully attended the Bucs' home games for years, although there has not always been a lot to cheer about! Today Rev. Morris rises to new challenges in building the body of Christ through service at Estero Community Church, leading us as we follow the Lord together.
Meet our Music Director,
Kathleen joined Estero Community Church with a rich background in church music education, directing, performing and organization. She is working on transforming the ECC Hand Bells Ensemble and the ECC Choir into vital and active performance groups for anyone who enjoys making music, regardless of experience.
The ECC Hand Bell Ensemble has been invited to perform at American House's Christmas concert and is looking forward to reaching out into the community.
If you are interested in joining our musical programs as a performer, or learning to ring hand bells, please contact us.
Meet our Office Administrator,
Meg works hard to keeps our office running smoothly: including daily office tasks, weekly worship publications, and monthly financial reports. She is the person you will talk to if you call us, and the person to contact if you need to publish an item in the weekly Bulletin! She also likes donuts.
Meg and her husband Nick, moved from Bulgaria to the United States more than 20 years ago for their graduate studies. Since then, they've had two children (Sophia, 17 and Kallin, 11), and lived in Oklahoma, New York, and now, Florida. In her spare time she cooks, reads, wrangles two cats, and tries (not very successfully) to maintain a couple of houseplants.
Missions & Outreach
Our statement of faith guides and directs our plans for outreach and mission. We act on a local and global level to improve the lives of disadvantaged groups and communities. Our partnerships with Peace River Presbytery helps make life in our corner of Southwest Florida better for migrant worker families and local citizens of low income by providing food, service and funding to community organizations that deal mainly with issues of hunger, housing equality, education, and sustainability.
Locally, we are actively involved with the following agencies: Mision Peniel in Immokalee, Interfaith Charities of South Lee, Immokalee Fair Housing Alliance, Echo, Cedarkirk Camp, and various Peace River Presbytery projects.
Our main partners in mission are Interfaith Charities of South Lee and Mision Peniel. Both organizations harness faith into intrepid mission to help local families who deal with poverty every day. Even in these times of pandemic-related insecurity and turmoil, both organizations keep their services open and very active. Estero Community Church's members are well-known in these community organizations, and they have continued donating food, funds, and service during COVID-19 close-downs. If you wish to learn more about how to help, please contact us, or donate directly.
Estero Community Church also provides ministry to the elderly residents of American House, runs a monthly support and fellowship group for veterans, participates in local gardening and improvement projects, and serves as a home to multiple faith-based and community groups.
On a global scale, Estero Community Church participates in worldwide PCUSA offerings on the every fifth Sunday, collects boxes for Operation Christmas Child, supports the Matanzas Seminary in Cuba and more.
Ministry and Service
volunteers & groups
Our Deacons provide spiritual support to the whole congregation through prayer , keeping in contact with every member and caring for our church family.
Ruling elders are elected by the congregation and provide leadership in all aspects of the church. They carry the responsibility of our congregation's spiritual and church life.
Our church has an amazing assortment of volunteers and groups. They help connect our church to our mission with action and community outreach.
A prayer chain is a way for people to gain assistance in prayer for any serious and pressing problem. It is also a way for any person to act on God's command to love one another (John 13:34-35). Many people cannot engage directly in ministry but we can all pray. Prayer is a way for us to reach out of ourselves, to put aside our loneliness and pain for the sake of another. Jesus teaches us that if we agree on anything and ask in faith, it will be granted (Matthew 18:19). "I tell you, ask and you will receive..." (Luke 11:9, Matt. 7:7). Our prayer chain is available to everyone.
