Mission & Vision


“So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied” (Acts 9:31). Therefore,

College Hill Presbyterian Church will be a church that multiplies Christians and churches as it walks in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit.




And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age’” (Matthew 28:18-20). Therefore,

College Hill Presbyterian Church exists to glorify God by making, maturing, and mobilizing disciples of Jesus Christ our Lord who advance the Great Commission in our community, at the University, and around the world.



Means and Method

We believe that “The outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption are his ordinances, especially the Word, sacraments, and prayer, all which are made effectual to the elect for salvation” (Westminster Shorter Catechism A. 88, cf. Acts 2:42). While corporate worship is a primary expression of the means of grace, it is not alone sufficient for making, maturing, and mobilizing disciples. 

Making and Mobilizing 

We understand that the Making of disciples occurs not only in the context of Word and Sacrament ministry but is also a fruit of the Mobilizing of our members by equipping them in the life of discipleship which includes relational evangelism and hospitality. Some examples for relational evangelism include the International Guest House, partnering with RUF’s campus ministry, volunteering at Sav-A-Life Pregnancy Center, and volunteering with the Kairos ministry. 


The equipping of the saints occurs as a result of sound preaching and is furthered in the context of small group ministries that include learning and training processes. These small groups could include but are not limited to Wednesday Night Fellowship, Community Groups, Discipleship Groups, and Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies.
