Episcopal at Penn State
God Loves you!
Episcopal at Penn State is a mission of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in State College, PA
(208 West Foster Ave). We function as a student organization on campus, led by our chaplain (and faculty advisor,) Ted Christopher, and a cohort of undergraduate as well as graduate students. We have been formed and reformed over the years – sometimes as a separate congregation, sometimes as a student club – and we look forward now to being the Episcopal branch of the Jesus movement on Penn State’s University Park campus.
Episcopal at Penn State is a welcoming and inclusive Christian student organization. We strive to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving neighbor as well as self. We affirm the God-givenness and God-giftedness of all identities, shapes, and sizes! We invite skeptics as well as believers to come and imagine the good work we can do together.
If you feel called to deepen your spiritual life, to advocate for the building up of the beloved community, to worship in a welcoming space, to be still and listen for the Holy Spirit, Episcopal at Penn State welcomes you. If you are wondering about faith, with deep questions and doubts, Episcopal at Penn State welcomes you. If you are seeking a place to consider the intersection of your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger, Episcopal at Penn State welcomes you.
God loves you! No Exceptions.
The Rev. Ted Christopher
Chaplain, Episcopal at Penn State
