Yes, there are many committed Christians at Princeton and there is a vibrant community life on campus. In addition to PEF, the campus is served by several other evangelical fellowships including Princeton Faith & Action, Manna Christian Fellowship, and Athletes-in-Action. There are many opportunities for growth in faith and active service on the Princeton campus, and we hope that you will be encouraged and be involved in the life of the community when you come to campus!
COMMUNITY: At PEF we are Committed to building a community of believers who love, serve and accept one another – PEF can be more than an activity at Princeton, it really can be a community that becomes like family.
PERSONAL MENTORING: Staff leaders (long-term; trained; wise and mature resource; Princeton alumni) and interns (recent grads) provide teaching and life-counsel in small, class-based Bible studies and weekly one-on-one times (“personal hours”).
DIVERSITY: We are Committed to a diverse but unified body of believers. We don’t target a specific type of student or denomination and come alongside anyone who wishes to know and grow in Christ.
BIBLICAL EXPOSITION: Friday night large group meetings are a time of fellowship and fun as well as Bible teaching – recent series includes: Sermon on the Mount, Acts, The Psalms, The Minor Prophets.
INTENTIONAL 4-YEAR PLAN: Class-based Bible studies focused on practical issues first-year students face and Salvation History (freshman year), Ephesians and Teaching the Bible (sophomore year), a gospel (junior year), and practical issues graduating seniors face (senior year).
SUPPORT AND APOLOGETICS: At PEF, we seek to provide biblical answers to hard questions and support and wisdom to counter arguments made against Christianity.
MISSIONS-MINDED: Nearly 40 PEF missionaries are serving around the world, not only do we support them financially and through prayer, but we also take trips to visit them and serve alongside them.
ALUMNI FAMILY: We also have a commitment to providing ongoing care to our alumni family which spans 70+ years, and about 1000 people.
