Campus Ministries

Our mission is to empower your mission.

The goal of Campus Ministries is to provide a plethora of opportunities for all students to encounter Jesus, grow in their relationship with Jesus, discover how to integrate that relationship into their professional goals, and to serve Him by meeting the needs of the people of this world with an eternal perspective consistent with the message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Worship opportunities

Many of our worship services are streamed and recorded. Watch on uTV.

In lieu of Week of Prayers each semester, Union College endeavors to "perpetuate the week of prayer experience" all year with our monthly Power Pac weekends. Special guests lead us in new and special ways into more opportunities to grow in our relationship with Jesus.

Faith in action

Project Impact

Every year, Union College takes a day off of classes and goes throughout the Lincoln community to do different projects that make an impact. On September 12, Union College volunteers will again work at community agencies around Lincoln for Project Impact.

Learn about our 37 year legacy.

International Volunteers and Taskforce

Many Union College students take a gap year to serve others both in North America and around the world. To call the experience "life-changing" is an understatement. 

Find out more about volunteering internationally and the application process.

SOS

Though naps are important, Campus Ministries offers something else to do on Sabbath afternoons. Some SOSs are outreach, others are in-reach, and some will be just reaching for a relaxing moment. If you have ideas for SOS activities, drop us a note. If you're already doing something on Sabbath afternoon you would like help promoting or funding, let us know! Watch for SOS signs, and do Something On Sabbath.

JOB

Union College students are known for their willingness to serve. Requests regularly come in asking for help from our community. Our JOB Ministry is part of our commitment to being a good friends to our neighbors.

Email Campus Ministries at cm@ucollege.edu if you're interested in helping with community outreach, or are seeking assistance.
