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.

"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.

Lord, hear our prayers for our nation, first responders, government officials, peacemakers, and all who are afraid this day. Grant those with the power to stop all violence and bring peace the wisdom and courage to do so. If you find you do not even have the words to begin, may Psalm 46 and other resources from the BCW help guide you. ...

Maryville College celebrated Homecoming October 16-18, 201 years after its founding in Maryville, TN! Because of COVID-19, Chaplain Rev. Dr. Anne McKee was not able to see alumni in person, but held the Alumni Church Professionals Gathering and Bonner Alumni Reunion virtually for Scots around the country to gather. One of those alumni is UKirk National’s Co-Moderator @lenturnerscales, Presbyterian Chaplain at Princeton University, who is grateful now to have Anne as a colleague, and is thankful for her mentorship during college that provided space to explore the intersection of faith and social justice.
