Agape Christian Fellowship (ACF) is a Christian college campus ministry formed by Pastors and brothers Thomas Muratore (or "PT") and Charles Muratore (or "PC") in 1995, serving the campuses of the University of Rochester, Eastman School of Music, and the Rochester Institute of Technology. The name comes from the Greek word αγάπη “agape” which means unconditional love. Here at ACF, we seek to learn more about the Lord and follow after Him.
We are a diverse group of Christians who love our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our purpose is to accurately teach God's love and holiness through the Scriptures, so that we become disciples who share the love of Christ wherever we may go.
There are many ways to get involved in the ministry at ACF:
Either at U of R or RIT campus, we meet every Friday from 7:30pm-8:30pm for Large Group. These meetings consist of worship, Scripture lessons, and sermons made by PC, PT, or one of our special guests. This is a great way to connect with other students in the Rochester area who want to grow in their Christian faith.
We are currently meeting at Interfaith chapel weekly.
*Please note: We will plan on having a Zoom link available for those who are not on campus or those who are not comfortable meeting in-person*
In Small Group, we gather at various days of the week to delve deeper into the Word, in order to further our individual and communal growth in Christ. In these meetings, smaller groups of students spend time reading the Word, sharing their thoughts, and learning the ways that they can grow. These groups are led by upperclassmen students who also learn and discuss Scripture with PC or PT.
On Sundays, we attend service together at the Well Church, located at 335 Helendale Rd, Rochester, NY 14609. After service, a complimentary brunch is served by the members of the church. Rides are available for students on any of our campuses and more!
