Teen & Community Center

A Downtown Teen & Young Adult Center

Movement 5280 Teen and Community Center is a ministry of Denver First Church. Our mission is: to develop a movement of faith, hope and love within Denver’s youth and underprivileged by engaging them with opportunities for worship, vocational training, recreation,
and relational support.
