The SJSU Faculty Staff Christian Fellowship is organized for the purpose of honoring and glorifying God. We do this by praying for the well-being of the University community, by setting forth a positive example of the Biblical Christian worldview, by attending to the needs of the campus community, and by sharing the love of God through Jesus Christ.

We welcome all who would like to learn more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus or who desire to glorify God on the SJSU campus.

The Faculty-Staff Christian Fellowship meetings in fall 2019 will be on the first Wednesdays and third Thursdays of the month during the semester, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Central Classroom Building CCB 222.
