UKirk Promotional Videos for General Assembly
The Office of Collegiate Ministries wants your promotional videos to showcase Ukirk at exhibit hall during General Assembly June 14-21.
Please send David Loleng, Interim Associate for Collegiate Ministry, a short (two minute) video, highlighting your ministry. Load it onto YouTube or Vimeo and send David the link by May 30th.
We will also use some of the videos on the UKIRK website and possibly the Presbyterian Mission Agency Communications staff can give your ministries more national exposure.

I am interested in the same thing as Cheryl Brockman. We have a unique, up and coming community college that is growing by leaps and bounds in our small town. Our church has never reached out to the community college people and are interested in engaging them somehow. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I am the United Campus Minister (PCUSA, UMC, DoC & UCC) in Corpus Christi, TX for Texas A&M CC and Del Mar Colleges. 95% of my support comes from the UMC, although the local PCUSA churches started this group 19 years ago. I am looking for grants and training.
