• Christian Study Center

Now Hiring: Executive Director


In the spring of 2001, Dr. Richard Horner came to Gainesville to become our founding director. Under his leadership the Center has brought together students, faculty, clergy and members of the community to explore the intellectual resources of the Christian tradition in addressing contemporary culture. Through the years, the Center has also provided a place for Christian students to gather, pray and encourage one another in a hospitable environment. As students consider the many questions that arise during their education, our director and staff offer guidance from Scripture and the long history of Christian wisdom. We welcome thoughtful conversation with those who share our faith, those of other faiths and those who profess no faith.

Our programs include culture seminars, reading groups and classes covering a broad range of topics such as Biblical studies, faith and vocation, creativity and the arts, philosophy, technology and the human, creation care and many others. We have a history of partnering with the university, local churches and other likeminded organizations as we serve those within the university community. Pascal’s Coffeehouse offers the best coffee and pastries in town and serves as our most visible outreach.

We are now looking for our second Executive director to shape and guide the center for the next phase of our growth and ministry.
