As a Christian university, FPU integrates faith and learning—transforming lives and developing students for service and leadership. Sponsored by the Mennonite Brethren church, we value our relationships with various denominations throughout the Central Valley.

Since part of our mission includes strengthening the church, we actively seek new ways to serve and better connect with churches. We offer resources, training programs and special events to churches, and also want to connect our students to ministry opportunities available to them through the church.

President Jones wrote a letter to valley churches expressing his heart in extending the influence of the Kingdom of God. You can read this letter here
