The Link Between Faith and Learning

Presbyterian college chaplains provide a link between faith and learning, between our Church and our institutions of higher education, and between people exploring the meaning of life and the God who is the basis of that meaning.

PCCA Purpose

The Presbyterian College Chaplains Association (PCCA) includes chaplains at APCU member colleges and universities, as well Presbyterian chaplains serving at other private colleges and universities across the country.

Our members have a unique opportunity (and responsibility) to enhance the understanding of faith and spirituality within their institutions and to influence the future of society by sharing the message of the Gospel on their campuses and throughout their communities.

The PCCA supports its members through the hosting of conferences and workshops, the dissemination of research and travel grants, the sharing of theological reflection and professional resources, and ongoing collaboration with related organizations, such as:
