Journeying with college students as they follow Christ.

OUR MISSION
The Mission of UKirk is to connect and empower those who lead, support, and advocate for collegiate and higher education ministries. Specifically, the vision is to:

Encourage and enable relationships between PCUSA and Cumberland Presbyterian campus, congregational, and chaplain ministries.

Promote the sharing of resources, models, and best practices.

Coordinate and facilitate events for collegiality and continuing education.

Advocate and interpret the mission of collegiate and higher education ministry to the church, encouraging prayer, participation and support.

Connect with other PCUSA or church-related ministries.

Welcome to the UKirk Network Registration. Although all PCUSA and PCUSA associated ministries are automatically considered part the UKirk Network, each ministry must register (or re-register) to be recognized by the Office of Collegiate Ministry and the UKirk Network, regardless of your branding status.

UKIRK DAILY

UKirk Daily is an app that offers two Biblical passages and a prayer. It was created to encourage collegiate students and young adults to develop a regular practice of connecting with God through listening (reading) and speaking (prayer). In both it’s design and interface, it really couldn’t be more simple.

Check out UKirk Greensboro Virtual Easter service!

"We are recording virtual services and making them available to congregations across the nation, and to date more than 50 congregations in 25 states have used our services. We have one general service, one Christmas service, and we are currently working on a third for after Easter. The students record in their own spaces and we edit together a full service for congregations to use plug-in-play. It’s become a great marketing tool for UKirk greensboro and UKirk campus ministry nationally, a fantastic fundraiser for us, and a wonderful way to showcase our students’ gifts." Katie Barrett Todd

"The subscription option offered to UKirk campus ministers for the Next Church national gathering content is an easy yes for me. For about the price of a single guest speaker honorarium you get access to all of the workshops even after the fact. It's a small investment that will pay dividends for students and leaders in our ministry over the next year and beyond." Neil Myer

I'm excited UKirk is making the subscription to the Next Church National Gathering accessible for campus ministers! This will make it possible to learn from the workshops and keynotes on a timetable that works for me. I'll also be able to share the recordings and draw from pre-made study guides for conversations with my colleagues and students. Though I'm bummed to not be able to sit with my UKirk friends from across the country in person this year, I'm grateful UKirk will still be enriching my National Gathering experience.

A UKirk Lenten digital resource will be available on February 3, 2021, just in time for Ash Wednesday.

It will include a session for each week of Lent beginning on Ash Wednesday, with a scripture passage, spiritual discipline, discussion questions for both group conversations and personal reflection, as well as ways to engage the passage creatively. We hope it will be flexible enough for groups or individuals to use during the season.
