CPC's college ministry is a collection of students from wide-ranging backgrounds gathered under the banner of Jesus Christ. Mostly made up of Yale, Southern (SCSU) and Gateway students, the college ministry also includes students from other area universities.
CPC seeks to help students love Christ, love the church, and love the campus life to which they are called. Wanting students to be involved in deeply satisfying relationships in the church, we offer a mentoring program in which college students mentor high schoolers, the Student Partnership. Because we love the campus, we send campus ministers to the campus, but above all, we invite students to take part in the fullness of Christ through CPC's rich, communal Sunday morning worship. Students, please honor us with your presence and unique gifts!
One-on-One and Small Group Discipleship
Depending on the need of the students or campus, we are also deeply committed to individual and small group discipleship on campus. This has been happening at Yale and Southern, and we look to serve students of all local campuses (Quinnipiac, Gateway, and Albertus Magnus) in the future.
A pastor-led lecture with Q&A to serve college students who want a more in-depth study of the whole Bible. In 2015-16, we met Friday mornings on Yale's campus to discuss the key beliefs Christians hvae generally agreed upon.
The plan for 2016-17 is to walk through the entire Bible, focusing on key covenants and genres, in order to equip our students with the tools to interpet and apply the whole counsel of God.
Bridging the Church-Campus Gap
This is our internship program for college students interested in learning more, investing more, being more knit in to the family of God. It is a great opportunity to serve, receive valuable theological training, and have practical experiences and opportunities within the church.

Athletes in Action
CPC supports several on-campus ministries at Yale including Athletes in Action: One World To Reach, One Language of Sport, One Message of Victory. Athletes in Action is a student-led sports ministry dedicated to building a community of fellowship founded in the loving character of Jesus Christ. We seek to reach out to students through large group meetings, fun activities, and individual connections. We welcome people of all backgrounds to explore the Christian faith. We meet weekly during the academic year and have Bible studies throughout the week, fellowship activities, and retreats throughout the year.
