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.
