At the University of PennsylvaniaIn fall 2013, a Christian leadership development program was launched at the University of Pennsylvania. It is now called Christian Union Martus.
The student organization provides students at Penn with access to in-depth Bible study, Christian leadership training, fellowship, and support for Christian students, as well as resources to help any interested students — whatever their spiritual background or beliefs — learn about Christianity.
Christian Union is an independent Christian ministry.

- In 2019-20, 149 undergraduate students enrolled in Christian Union's rigorous, weekly Bible courses.
- This year, three full-time Christian Union ministry faculty worked directly with students, providing Bible course instruction, mentorship, and leadership coaching.
- The leadership lecture series, Philia, addresses a host of challenging, inspiring topics throughout the year like "The Gospel and Abundance vs. Scarcity Mindset," "Race in the Church," and "Reasons for Faith."
- Conferences took students off campus twice a year for great times of prayer, growth as a community, and stellar talks rooted in scripture.
- Prayer gatherings take place throughout the year, and students are learning to fast as they seek the Lord for themselves and their campus. Notably, students organized six weeks of 24-hour prayer in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
