Who We Are

After two years of prayer and conversation, the Wesley Fellowship at GVSU has joined with ministry partners from the Presbyterian Church USA and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to create United Campus Christian Fellowship (UCCF).

United Campus Christian Fellowship 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. Absolutely everyone is welcome!

Our Campus Ministers
