Renewal College Fellowship (RCF)

RCF is the college ministry of Renewal Presbyterian Church. It consists of college students from various schools throughout the Philadelphia region. We hope that at Renewal you will experience the gospel of the life-changing grace of Jesus Christ within a caring Christian community. Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, we hope that Renewal can be a place to call your spiritual home. We look forward to having you visit and join us!

RCF Community Groups

We strongly encourage you to join one of our community groups, the building blocks of our RCF community. Led by student leaders, each community group meets together weekly for Bible study (with an emphasis on applying the truths of the Bible to our lives), mutual care, deepening fellowship, and various activities. It is the primary forum for you to explore Christianity and experience Christian community in a welcoming setting.

We have community groups on the following campuses:

  • Drexel University
  • Temple University
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • University of the Sciences
