Westminster Presbyterian Fellowship 

WPF provides opportunities for college students – like free meals and fellowship, Bible exploration, mission/outreach and lots of other great things.   YOU are invited to be part of this welcoming community where people from many places and homes can be “no longer strangers, but members of the household of God.” (Eph. 2closeEphesians 2 By Grace Through Faith 2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. One in Christ 11 Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the spaniding wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.

College is a time of exploration and growth, and we all know there are many things to dabble in here at PSU. Campus ministry is a great place to explore what is going on in your own faith journey, have fun with your peers, and do some good in God’s world.  WPF gives PSU students a safe, welcoming place to connect and continue to grow into the fullness that God has called them to.  And always – we hope WPF is “Space for Grace…All are Welcome.”

A Bit About our Campus Minister

First, the official stuff:  Diana went to seminary in Atlanta.  Her first profession in ministry was in Camp Ministry (Calvin Center @ Presbytery of Greater Atlanta and Geneva Hills @ Scioto Valley Presbytery).  She went to college at Lock Haven University , and received Master’s degrees from PSU (Rec/Park).

She’s a long way from those college experiences and is happy now to journey alongside our PSU students, to provide hospitality and welcome.  A big part of her ministry is play, service & outreach, community building and enjoying God in the outdoors.

And if all of that isn’t enough…here’s a  article about WPF from The Synod of the Trinity.
