College Students Can Find Spiritual Care with Campus Ministries
POJ's Collegiate Ministries assists students with community building and spiritual care, whether students are on campus or attending school virtually. POJ supports campus ministry programs at University of Mary Washington, University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia State University, and University of Richmond. These programs are both PC(USA) and ecumenical to keep college students engaged with the church and to provide a place of support and counsel. If a student you know attends another college or university, encourage them to find a UKirk ministry on that campus.
