St. Petersburg Christian University

Welcome to St. Petersburg Christian University

St. Petersburg Christian University (SPbCU) had its origins in the early 1980’s. Since it had not been possible to provide theological training to Christian leaders in the Former Soviet Union (FSU) there was a great pressure to make a modest beginning. The mission of St. Petersburg Christian University (SPbCU) is to provide accredited higher education based on evangelical values. In all aspects of university life, SPbCU aims to create an environment, which provides for spiritual growth and the achievement of academic excellence. Following the calling of the Triune God, SPbCU prepares Christians to serve and lead in the church and society.
