About this Church

We are a contemporary church with a passion for missions and reaching the lost.

We are located in a college town (Penn State – “We Are!”) with an average about 80 to 100 people in our Sunday morning service. We have a growing number of families with small children and thus our children’s ministry is quickly becoming a very important part of our discipleship.

Our mission field is local as the university provides a lot of scholars, many who are from non-western cultures. This is a great opportunity for someone with a passion for evangelism.
