Grad students, First Pres welcomes YOU!

Located next to the UC Berkeley campus, First Pres has been a home for graduate students, postdocs, adjunct professors, and university staff as they seek to integrate their Christian faith with their fields of study. We also have representation from neighboring colleges and universities, too!

The academic journey is unique, filled with challenges, questions, and unparalleled experiences and joys. Students from all over the world worship, study, serve, and enjoy meals with us. We invite you to join us in exploring faith and community together.
