Christian Pharmacists Fellowship International

KU CPFI offers a forum for like-minded pharmacy students to fellowship and challenge each other to grow spiritually.  Our mission is to serve Jesus Christ, and impact the world through the pharmacy profession.  We have mainly student-led Bible studies to learn more about God’s Word and to fellowship together as we grow in grace.  One of our core values is to encourage evangelism and the integration of faith into our future practice.  CPFI is open to all students in the KU School of Pharmacy.  We also offer social events for anyone that would like to find out more about us.

We are affiliated with the national CPFI organization, which works to unite pharmacists and pharmacy students in incorporating their faith into the pharmacy profession. CPFI has chapters throughout the United States and offers many opportunities to pharmacists and students, including: community service, short or long term mission trips, bible studies, and an annual national conference.

This past year, one of our main service projects for our organization was Operation Christmas Child. This is an outreach for children living in poverty around the world to receive a shoebox full of Christmas gifts.  With the help of the entire pharmacy school, we raised $171 and also received additional gift donations for the children.  Through this effort, we were able to purchase and ship 16 boxes of gifts to children who would otherwise not have had Christmas gifts.

We hope that we have the opportunity to share our faith with you!

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” -  Philippians 3:14
