Our Mission

The MacLaurin CSF House

MacLaurinCSF exists to strengthen Christian thinking at the University of Minnesota and in the Twin Cities.We work toward this end by bridging our church and university communities. Each one of our conversations (seminars, lectures, reading groups, dinners) serves as a unique bridge, bringing needed theological resources to the university and important academic resources to the church. We welcome all visitors to our Study Center at 1337 Cleveland Avenue North in St. Paul for coffee, espresso drinks, and a wide assortment of teas. Bring a friend or a book. Office hours are 9am-3pm, Tuesday-Friday.


Interested in joining the MacLaurinCSF conversation online? Follow our new blog where you'll hear from local Christian scholars about new (and sometimes old) books and ideas in a variety of fields.
