3rd Way Collective is a Penn State University Student Organization seeking to create spaces for peace, justice, and faith on campus. We do this in many ways:

Explore themes of peace and justice, community and service, spirituality and discipleship through campus events, conversations, service opportunities, faith talks, and guest speakers.

Apply your understandings of explored themes with adult mentors from the local community. Engage in service projects on term breaks. Connect with experiences that match your skills and passions. Be empowered as discussion leaders and project coordinators.

Reflect on your new understandings and experiences with both internal and group reflection with mentors and other students.

3rd Way Collective is led by Pastor Ben Wideman. We are interested in connecting and collaborating with people of all faith traditions!  3rd Way Collective is sponsored by University Mennonite Church in State College – a local group of Anabaptists associated with Mennonite Church USA. To find out more about Mennonites, visit ThirdWay.com.

We also welcome partner churches in State College who want to join us in this ministry at Penn State.  Contact us to find out how you can be involved!
