Campus Ministries

We are institution of higher calling and higher learning. 

Live Life On Mission! 

Campus Ministries endeavors to assist every follower of Christ live out the Great Commission – making disciples of all people – as a part of the collegiate experience. 

We help students GROW and GO as disciples of Jesus Christ: from fellowship to discipleship to evangelism to service projects, our goal is to equip students to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and go out into the community on mission.  Should you choose to attend UC, we pledge to support, encourage, and equip you to live your life on mission not only as a student, but wherever God leads you in the future!
