College

Welcome to College Ministries at First Presbyterian Church, Fresno! We are proud to partner with the CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach) in transforming college students to transform the world. FPC hopes to create a space for college-aged students and young professionals (18-24)  who are looking to connect with others in similar stages of life. 

Through Sunday morning gatherings, weekly Bible studies, and monthly meals with families in the church, we have places that students and young professionals can feel a sense of personal belonging, rich connection, and deeper understanding of the Gospel.

If you're a student interested in connecting with us, click here to let us know and we'll tell you about upcoming events and opportunities for fellowship!

Special Events

Jubilee

Jubilee is the CCO's annual collegiate conference. It is hosted in Pittsburgh, PA February 25-27, 2022. This conference helps young people as they consider their vocation. Oftentimes, culture tells us that our time, money, and relationships are only for our benefit. But there's a different narrative that if we choose to believe, it could really transform everything. Consider joining us for this annual conference to ask ourselves, how is God going to bring all of this together in the end! 

For more details, contact Aaron (412) 709-3881 or Geraud (717) 331-1971

CCO Partnership

Believing that tomorrow's local, national, and world leaders are at the college and university of today, FPC is excited to be in a partnership with the college campus ministry organization, CCO. The CCO calls college students to serve Jesus Christ with their entire lives.

As a college campus ministry they are distinct in three ways:

  1. They develop students to be passionate leaders who serve Jesus Christ in their studies, jobs, communities, and families.
  2. They serve together with the church, inviting students into the lives of local congregations.
  3. They design each ministry to fit the needs of every campus they serve.

The CCO's CORE VALUES are: 

  • All things belong to God.
  • Jesus changes people's lives.
  • We love college students.
  • We embrace God's multiethnic Kingdom
  • Faithfulness is pursued together.
  • We celebrate life.
