Protestant Campus Ministry
A Ministry of Christ's Presence at Penn State Behrend
Welcome! PCM is about inviting you into a positive, loving relationship with God! We are intentional to welcome, care for, listen to, laugh with, and love every student we meet, in the example we have been given by Jesus Christ!
Give! In the Christian tradition, we invite our students to walk the difficult, yet fulfilling path of Christ, serving and loving others, and giving of ourselves to the community and people around us. We are a place where you will be challenged in your faith, to give more, love more, and be more.
Join In! We are about relationships and friendships! We prayer for, support and enjoy the many faces who frequent our worship and other events. Christian community is a place where friendships are deep and broad!
Be Challenged! Just as one's intellectual life is cultivated at college, our mission is to cultivate your spiritual life. We're not just about fun (though we like that!) As you ask the big questions: about relationships, vocation, our world and our God, we hope to be the place where you can find answers, or if the answers can’t be found, to find companions to explore these questions with you.
WHO ARE WE?
Protestant Campus Ministry is strongly supported by Erie area churches and funded through 4 mainline Protestant denominations: Lutheran (ELCA), Presbyterian (USA), Episcopalian, and United Methodist. Other churches, such as American Baptist and Church of God also give to our ministries. We receive NO funding from Penn State Behrend and therefore must depend upon outside gifts and contributions for our full operating budget.
PCM continual seeks financial and spiritual support from churches, businesses and individuals. If you can help our ministry by contributing money, food (or food gift cards), and other freebies, such as new Christian & devotional books for students, please contact our director, Rev. Rebecca Aist McFee. Our director is also available to meet with you or your church to form partnerships.
