Ekklesia (Greek for "church") is the college ministry of PBC. We seek to invest in the church at PBC and embody the church on our campuses. We do this through in-depth Bible study and personal discipleship.


Ekklesia consists of students from Stanford, Santa Clara, Foothill, De Anza, San Jose State, and San Jose City College, as well as working people aged 18 to 22. We also stay connected with students who grew up at PBC and now attend college outside the Bay Area.


On Sunday mornings we gather as a community at PBC to eat breakfast together and hear from God’s word before joining the main service. During the week we have campus-specific Bible study fellowships: Oasis at Stanford, CORE at Santa Clara, and Ekklesia: Local for community college and working people.
