About Us

Philly Christian Students is comprised of believers in Christ from Penn, Temple, Drexel, Villanova, and other Philadelphia-area campuses. We have been a registered student organization at Penn since the mid-1990s (Christian Students @ Penn) and at Temple since 2009 (Christian Students @ Temple).

Our goal is to cooperate with God for the fulfillment of His eternal purpose (Eph. 3:11). This involves helping believers to grow in their Christian life and helping non-Christians to understand what it means to be a Christian. Specifically, we focus on three main areas:

  • Life practices: Helping students to develop their personal relationship with the Lord that they may grow in Christ unto maturity (Col. 1:28-29)
  • Education: Helping students to see and apprehend the truths revealed in the Bible (1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)
  • Service: Providing students with opportunities to serve others and develop as functioning members of the Body of Christ (Matt. 28:19; Eph. 4:12)
