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.
