Wonderful World of UU Campus Ministry!

Posted by Kayla Parker // October 11th 2011 // Guides and Tools, On Campus, Stories and Voices // no comments

We are students, lay leaders and religious professionals of all ages, identities and life experiences who are committed to creating Unitarian Universalist opportunities for fellowship, spirit and service on college campuses across the continent.

We do our work because we are called to it. And we love it; it’s fun, fulfilling and challenging.  We do it regardless of attention we receive from others in our wider UU world, but are thrilled that we are getting more recognition and are committed to increasing the visibility and legitimacy of this vital ministry.

We do it because college students need ministry now. We do it because we believe that institutional relationships between colleges and congregations can transform both communities and the larger neighborhoods of which they are a part.

We create, sustain and build lasting institutional relationships and vital ministry to current college students.We gather in sacred community on campus and on continental conference calls, webinars and Facebook.

We meet in lobbies of research buildings and student centers, in college chapels and classrooms.
