College is a time where everything is new—it's also a place to ask big questions. Now there's a place—an outpost, an oasis—of rest, perspective, and community. UKirk, a network of collegiate ministries, supported by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Just two years after it was launched, UKirk is helping reclaim the heritage of faith and service at colleges across the country.

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.
