Meet Fourth Presbyterian Church: Host of Fourth Fellows

Fourth Pres has a long history of ministry in the nation’s capital - we were formed here in 1828, when John Quincy Adams was the president! Our current location in Bethesda, MD, is just 9 miles from the US Capitol Building. Fourth is an accredited campus of Reformed Theological Seminary and a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Many members of Fourth work in and influence the culture of Washington, DC, making Fourth a fascinating place to worship and build relationships.

Bethesda is an interesting city in its own right - home to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), hundreds of incredible restaurants, and one of the most highly educated populations in the nation! The Capital Crescent Trail - just blocks from the church - allows commuters to easily bike, walk or jog into DC.  Bethesda is a walkable city with metro and bus stops easily accessible. If you want get out of the city, the C&O Canal towpath provides a beautiful, scenic diversion.
