Since the Church is for followers of Jesus at every age (including the college years!), we partner with CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach) campus staff worker Melissa Riches, who reaches out to students right around the corner from us at Philadelphia University.

Melissa works in the Office of Spiritual Development at PhilaU and helps out with Cornerstone, a student-driven ministry at PhilaU.

Cornerstone offers a variety of opportunities for students to explore the person of Jesus and grow in their love and knowledge of Him through a bi-weekly large group meeting, Life Groups for men and women, retreats with other Philadelphia-area students and conferences.  Cornerstone also offers carpools to local church services, including Pilgrim, on Sunday mornings.

Feel free to contact Melissa Riches at
