Faith West Campaign - Purdue Bible Fellowship and Biblical Counseling
Purdue Bible Fellowship: 2 Decades of Outreach
For more than 20 years, Faith has sponsored an on-campus student group named Purdue Bible Fellowship (PBF). Purdue University recognizes PBF as an official student organization.
The purpose of PBF is to provide faith-based fellowship and resources to the students, faculty, and staff of Purdue. For two years Faith has been working to locate the best possible home for PBF.
After extensive discussions, it was determined that the proposed 6.4 acre site on Northwestern Avenue was the ideal location. We believe this project can meet the unique needs of the Purdue family and advance the cause of Jesus Christ through PBF and our biblical counseling ministry.
PBF's Plans for Using the Faith West Facility
- Bible Study: In Acts 2:42-46, the early church was “continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching ... day by day continuing with one mind.” PBF will offer Bible studies for people who wish to find God’s answers to the challenges of contemporary life.
- Prayer and Worship: Acts 2:42 also states that Christians were involved in the daily “ breaking of bread and ... prayer.” The new PBF facility will be a center for students and staff to pray and worship together.
- Fellowship: Acts 2 stresses the importance of “fellowship” when we read that Christians were “taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart.” Purdue Bible Fellowship provides ways for students and staff to grow through friendship and mutual encouragement.
- Counseling and Mentoring: Acts 2 speaks of people who positively related to one another so that together they were “praising God and having favor with all the people.” Our goal is to encourage positive interaction of counselors and mentors with students and staffers who desire a growing relationship with God.
