About Us

CCO at Penn is an initiative that works in partnership with local churches to provide an expanding network of spiritual mentorship for students at the University of Pennsylvania. We are passionate about how the Gospel vision transforms all of life, and the CCO staff is here to come alongside you in following Jesus, no matter where you are at in the journey.

We are here to hear your questions, talk about whatever’s on your mind, and just listen to how life is going. CCO at Penn is committed to showing hospitality to students and gathering together regularly for good community, good conversation, and good food. We also worship together regularly each Sunday at one of our local, partnering churches.

The Rule of Life

Spiritual Formation Community

We host the Rule of Life Spiritual Formation Community at Penn. A rule of life is a framework of regular spiritual habits that provides order to our busy and chaotic lives, enabling us to thrive spiritually in a stressful and distracting world. Together we practice traditional Christian spiritual exercises like prayer and scripture reading, but also habits of healthy tech boundaries, rest, and friendship. Practicing these habits together help us orient our lives around the loving presence of God.
