History, Background & Mission of PUC & Calvin’s Coffee House
The Presbyterian University Center @Westminster House (PUC) is the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s campus ministry serving Florida State University since at least 1935. Built by Florida Presbyterians in 1950, Westminster House is an historic and architecturally significant “student house” that includes spacious meeting areas and a library, kitchen, student residence and offices. PUC’s mission is to embody and offer a Christian faith community in the Reformed and Presbyterian tradition at FSU.
With a family’s generous financial donation in 2009, Calvin’s Coffee House opened as PUC’s outreach initiative in Christian hospitality. Inspired by our commitment to Jesus Christ, Calvin’s is a not-for-profit enterprise whose goal is to provide students and other guests a safe, secure, non-commercial place and space to gather, meet, study, rest, recreate, enjoy good refreshments and otherwise find life-blessing sustenance, comfort, support and encouragement. As a extended ministry program of PUC, Calvin’s operates under the authority of PUC’s Board of Directors.
Calvin’s has enjoyed increasing success with as many as 60 guests counted daily since late 2011. While counting guests is one measure of success, such head-counts alone neither meet all of our expectations nor are they primary. Success for PUC and Calvin’s always means asking qualitative questions also: How good is our coffee, espresso and other drinks and refreshments? Do guests feel welcomed? Are they served well? Are our baristas personable, genuine and accommodating? What qualities make Calvin’s a destination? What characteristics describe Calvin’s, its ambiance or even its spirit? How helpful are we to others?
We believe that the arts embrace human spirituality in ways that inspire not only healthy Christian faith and discipleship, but that contribute to the general wellness and welfare of the human community at-large. We believe that today’s context calls for a renewal of the arts; that both FSU and society at-large will benefit from the flourishing of creative expression. Thus we seek to enhance PUC’s outreach by establishing Calvin’s and Westminster House as periodic artistic venues. Engaging practicing artists with diverse talents to create work and hosting shows or other arts-centered events with and for them is our goal.
