University Christian Ministries traces its history back to 1954 (which makes it older than UWM!) when it began as The Wesley Foundation of Milwaukee. Through the years it has expanded to include other Christian denominations and presently is an inter-denominational ministry.

UCM is supported by the following denominations:
  • American Baptist
  • Presbyterian (U.S.A.)
  • United Church of Christ
  • United Methodist Church

Students involved with UCM

UWM students who attend UCM are not limited in background to the above churches. Students come from:

  • other denominational churches
  • non-denominational churches
  • no previous church experience
  • no Christian experience
  • other faith experiences
  • no faith experiences
  • and from at least 5 continents and 15 other countries

UCM is for students who are searching for a way to connect with God’s presence in life and for those seeking a Christian community where they can grow and serve. We are a place where the UWM community can:

  • Discover Christ
  • Explore Christ
  • Experience Christ
  • Grow in Christ

We invite you to become a part of our campus life!
