Who We Are

After two years of prayer and conversation, True North Campus Ministry has joined with ministry partners from the United Methodist Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church to create United Campus Christian Felloship (UCCF).

We are a campus ministry of for all students, regardless of their religious affiliation ( or lack of affiliation) who are interested in exploring their faith and the world. We are dedicated to being respectful of the variety of religious beliefs that students hold and encourage respectful conversation as we explore issues together.

UCCF offers a place where students can learn about and follow Jesus Christ in a non-judgmental, inclusive, and open environment. We help students learn how their faith connects to the rest of their lives- their career choices and their social justice concerns. We offer thoughtful Bible study, spiritual formation, and opportunities to put one’s faith into action.
