Acts 2 Christian Fellowship at Stanford University


Join us for Bible study, fellowship and small groups!


Acts 2 Christian Fellowship is a fellowship at Stanford of both graduates and undergraduates that take the Bible seriously. We meet every week to study the Bible, have fun, talk about life, and build lasting friendships. Whether you're a Christian who wants to grow in your faith, or someone simply curious about what Christianity is all about, we invite you to come check us out!




Acts 2:42

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

Teaching & Fellowship

We seek to follow the example set by the early Christian church described in Acts 2:42. We meet every week to study God's word through teaching and group discussions.

Breaking of Bread

Before every Bible study, we eat and laugh together. Meals are home-cooked and prepared by our loving staff.

Prayer

Just as the early disciples of Jesus made prayer a very important part of their daily lives, we also strive to prioritize prayer in our lives too.


What is A2CF?


Meet Some of Our Students

Emma | Human Biology

I love hiking, baking, all things medicine/health-related, baseball, and singing with Testimony A Cappella! My favorite part about A2 is that it's always been such a welcoming and warm community and a place where I've really learned a lot about God.

Victor | Computer Science

Some things I like to do in my free time are play (classical) piano, watch/discuss football, and read articles on obscure topics. My favorite part of A2 is the shared fellowship between church, Bible study, and small groups, and I hope you can take part in our amazing community!

Josh | Mathematical and Computational Science

I love to eat and make Asian food, as well as watch dance battles! If I could dance even a tenth as smooth as those guys, I’d consider it a success. My favorite thing about A2 is how they've loved and cared for me as I came. In big struggles and questions about faith and life, they've been there helping me and giving so much of their time. A2's helped me really invite God into my life in college.

Haeli | Symbolic Systems

I’m a huge fan of bunnies, puzzles, and overalls, and I love to watch Broadway musicals and action/mystery movies! What I love most about A2 is being surrounded by friends who have truly pointed me to Christ throughout my whole Stanford adventure. Studying scripture and having true fellowship with other members of the Stanford community have helped me to feel at home on campus! And everyone loves to eat food all the time, so that's always a plus <3

Jonathon | Earth Systems

My interests include Arabic and the Middle East, singing and playing piano, hiking, freshwater security, and gardening (I really love plants 😂). What draws me to A2 the most is its community: there’s a crazy amount of talent and wisdom in this group, and everyone’s busy because it’s Stanford. But both students and staff invest the time to share their lives with you— sometimes physically over a good meal, sometimes virtually over a good Zoom call.

Pierce | Computer Science

Some of my interests are cybersecurity, election security, and international policy. What draws me to A2 most is the incredible warmth, kindness, and generosity of the A2 God squad!

Ian | Math

I am also interested in Russian literature, thought, history, music production, and hiking. With regards to A2, I love how friendly and genuinely invested everyone is with each other. A2 really feels like my family on campus!

Tony | Mechanical Engineering PhD

Some of my interests include robotics, basketball (go Lakers!), and movies. Some aspects of A2 that make it special to me are the sense of community, the good Biblical discussions, and, of course, the food!

Charles | Math

A few of my favorite activities are playing violin, bullet chess, and hiking! What draws me to A2 the most is that the members of the A2 community are so invested in each other and in growing in Christ together. Everyone is open and caring and excited to have fellowship and eat!

Meet Our Directors

Jason & Amy | A2CF Directors

Hi! We’re Amy and Jason, Directors of A2CF at Stanford. We’d love to meet you in fellowship and help each other grow to know Jesus Christ more! Here is our bio staccato-style, so we can get to the interesting stuff after.

Together: Staff at Bridgeway Church of SV, met ’97, married ’02 Cambridge MA (Honeymoon: Roadtrip from MA to CA), A2 staff since ’02, 4 kids HS/MS/Elementary, Soccer/Choir/Mandarin Immersion parents.
Amy: Scientist@Stanford GSB, EE M.Eng.@MIT, Hong Kong->NY->Sugar Land, TX->Boston->Palo Alto.
Jason: Eng@VMware, Stanford EE Ph.D., Taiwan->Chicago burbs (Go Cubs!)->Boston->Palo Alto.

Now that that’s out of the way, what we really want to do is to invite you to share life together in community and serious consideration of truth by studying the Bible and the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. We have been a part of college campus Christian groups since 1997, because we believe it is a unique setting where new adults can examine the purpose of their life and discover and practice how to live out its meaning. We believe that the world has always been a challenging, turbulent place to live, but that Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection offer redemption for the world’s brokenness and a template for a life full of loving others, true community, and ultimately light in the darkness.

Yes, that is very high-minded rhetoric, but we are just ordinary people with faith in a greater God. So we’d love to meet you soon and explore faith together!
