We want to see God’s Kingdom come at Purdue.
COME ALONGSIDE US.
What is Campus House?
Purdue Christian Campus House is a non-denominational church community comprised of undergrad and graduate students, young professionals, and families who desire to follow Jesus and grow in their faith. We'd love to come alongside you in the pursuit of an intimate and dynamic relationship with Christ and equip you to live for His Kingdom.
Find us in our temporary space at 320 North Street while construction on a new House is underway (learn more about that project here). While we're eager to resume in-person worship services and events, we also want to love you well and follow the University's lead in regard to COVID-19 protocols. We look forward to gathering when it's permitted and wise to do so. In the meantime, we will continue to offer the Living Room Sessions [link] in place of Sunday services through (at least) the end of June. Check out pcch.org/covid19 for additional information and upcoming announcements.
Coffee & Supply Co.
We opened Greyhouse offee & Supply Co. in 2008 to serve the community through a hospitable atmosphere and a really good cup of coffee.
Music & Arts Festival
Starry Night, our annual street festival, gathers thousands of people from around the city and features musicians, local artisans, food trucks, and ways to serve the community - all under a canopy of lights.
Whole Gospel. Whole Life. Whole World.
We seek to teach, live, & share the WHOLE GOSPEL to radically transform and equip the WHOLE LIFE of emerging adults at Purdue and then mobilize them to influence, love, and change the WHOLE WORLD for Christ & His Kingdom. We desire to see thousands of students sent out from Purdue aware of their
identity in Jesus, rooted in the Father’s heart, and filled with the Spirit. We long to see churches, homes, workplaces, and prayer rooms around the world filled with Boilermakers for whom God’s grace and truth is the impetus, motivation, and eternal reality of their lives.
TO REACH, EQUIP, & MOBILIZE EMERGING ADULTS FOR THE GLORY OF CHRIST & HIS KINGDOM.
We desire to make God’s presence known on Purdue’s campus as a vital part of the Body of Christ throughout Greater Lafayette. We purpose to connect students intimately with the Father’s heart and other Christians, come alongside them in the Spirit’s process of transformation, and mobilize them for Kingdom living.
What to Expect
You can find us in our temporary headquarters across from the Purdue Memorial Union, close enough to walk from most residence halls and apartments. In this season, join us for Sundays online through the Living Room Sessions—biblical teaching, prayer, and reflection and application of the Word. Gather with those who are "staying in place" with you, or meet virtually with friends and family members. Our heart is that Sundays would be a weekly re-connection to each other, to the Gospel at work in our individual stories, and to the grace and truth of Jesus.
9:00 AM and 11:00 AM
We believe Scripture to be the inspired, accurate, timeless, powerful, epic storyline of God's creation, pursuit, and restoration. Ultimately God has revealed Himself to us through His Son, Jesus, and as we respond to Him, He makes His presence known to us in the intimacy and power of the Holy Spirit.
God wants to give us life, but we can only receive this life if we spend time with Him and receive from Him: reading and meditating on Scripture, confessing our sins and sharing our struggles with each other, and praying for and with people to experience His restoration.
The Father and Son and Spirit are all loving and giving and sharing with one another. Community is an invitation to participate in this Triune relationship, and to continually invite others into it. We acknowledge that we need each other and that the life Jesus offers works only in connection with others. The most defining thing about us as a church should be the way we love one another.
We believe everyone has a unique story, and we desire to help each person pursue an intimate and dynamic relationship with God that invites the Gospel (the big story of God’s love, pursuit, and restoration) to transform and redirect the trajectory of one’s life. The process inevitably leads to a new chapter in one’s story—in Frederick Buechner’s words, a defining of one’s calling where “your greatest passion meets the world’s greatest need.”
The Gospel invites us into a process of salvation, transformation, and growth that comes only through the Cross. As the Spirit works within us, renovating our hearts, we will seek to become like Jesus in all areas of life, including our finances, attitudes, speech, actions and relationships.
God has called us to come alongside those around us with the truth and grace of Jesus. This involves the way we live and share the Gospel, but also our responsibility to the poor, the oppressed, and the broken.
God alone is worthy of our worship, and we desire to worship with our whole lives. When we do gather for corporate worship, we have the opportunity to reframe our hearts and minds, to assume our appropriate “smallness,” and live for His glory.
The Kingdom of God is here and now. We want to be able to recognize the Kingdom as it breaks through and into this broken world. We want to participate with God in bringing His Kingdom into all aspects of life and culture by naming and dispensing His grace, truth, and beauty as we love and serve those around us.
