Fort Lauderdale's Third Oldest Church
Mount Hermon was established in 1906 under Rev. J.H. Haines and is both Fort Lauderdale's and Broward County's oldest A.M.E. church. In fact, historical evidence shows that our deed was purchased from the Dallas Land Company before Broward County was in existence as our "township" was then a part of Dade County until 1911. We are the third church of any kind to have been built in the township of Ft. Lauderdale.

Mount Hermon has been known as, "The Friendly Church." Despite our old roots, we continue to serve God and community in a way that relates to and reaches out to our world today. Truly, if you don't know where you've been, it's harder to keep your foot sure where you are going.
