UM collegiate ministries are the missional presence of The United Methodist Church on college and university campuses around the world. Through a network of chaplaincies, Wesley Foundations, ecumenical ministries and church-based ministries, The United Methodist Church reaches more than 1,300 campuses around the world.
We are called to share with our campuses the transformational nature of Christ in a way that raises up a new generation of thoughtful, articulate Christians who care about making the world a better place. While this calling looks and feels very different across our campuses, it is central to our identity and it compels us to provide intentional, student-led ministries that reach this emerging generation of leaders.
Who We Serve:
Collegiate Ministry Leaders
Providing training, resources, and networking to those who are collegiate ministry professionals is one of our primary tasks. We believe that serving the college campus is a specialized calling within The United Methodist Church that requires the latest and most informative materials for shaping the lives of students across the globe.
College and University Students
Students are at the heart of what we do. In addition to supporting those who directly lead our students, we have a full array of resources, events, and leadership formation tools that students can access through our office. We help provide the tools students need to help discern their call, develop their skills, and discover a community of other young Christian leaders.
Annual Conference Leaders
Campus ministry would not be possible without the support of Annual Conference leadership. Through connecting with other leaders and developing specific training resources for their work, we are constantly looking for ways to support the work of our conferences as they look toward the future of campus ministry.
We work to provide resources that support students’ faith formation and vocational exploration as they discover their life’s work.
By pairing the inquisitive, creative nature of our students with leadership formative experiences we can help them realize the church of tomorrow.
With over 1400 campuses around the world, we have the opportunity to help students connect their faith and life in a that transforms the world.
