Who We Are

Philly Christian Students (PCS) is comprised of believers in Christ from U 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). PCS is composed of students from a variety of backgrounds
all seeking to know the truth (John 8:32) from God’s Word and to announce the gospel (Rom. 1:15-16) to all the students on college campuses at Philadelphia. Thus, the purpose of PCS is to announce the unsearchable riches of Christ as the gospel (Eph. 3:8) to college students, staff, and faculty in Philadelphia; to seek and be constituted with the profound truths of God’s Word; and to bring believers into the daily enjoyment of Christ as life (Col. 3:4) for the building up of the Body of Christ (Eph. 4:16) according to God’s eternal purpose (Eph. 3:11).

We have numerous activities throughout the year for this purpose, from small group gatherings and weekly Bible studies to semi-annual mountain retreats. Come and enjoy Christ with other members of God’s family!
