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.

@preshouse GatherTown at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is a new virtual space for students to meet each other and participate in the community at Pres House. People move their avatars around the different rooms to engage with others as they get closer to them. Students can go to small groups, bible studies, worship, play games, or just hang out with others.

Today is the last day to register for Racism 101 & Organizing Training event next Tuesday, September 29th from 7-9PM Eastern. Here is a bit more info about the training and who can come.

This 2-hour training led by trainers from The Open Table KC will focus both on WHAT systemic racism is, but also HOW your group can organize to work for racial justice in your campus context. Each participant will come away with a set of tools they can use to organize and implement anti-racism programs in and for your campus community. (https://theopentablekc.com/trainings)

It would be ideal if 2-4 people from each campus could attend (that could even be 2-4 students or yourself and a colleague), yet it is also totally fine to have just 1 or more than 4 attend as well. It is open to all students who are interested in learning how to address systemic racism, not just your “official" student leadership.

The deadline for registration is TODAY, September 24th (at midnight Pacific Time); link to register in our bio.
