University Christian Church is an urban, campus ministry with its own fair-trade cafe. Our location allows us to minister to the needs of inner city folks, families and University of Cincinnati students and gives us opportunities to express the kingdom through art, music, justice and conversation. Our church grows from the Restoration movement, where congregations are independent and we love to explore what it means to have unity in essentials, liberty in non-essentials and love in all things. This means that our church draws people from many backgrounds – Quakers, Pentecostals, Catholics all worship regularly with us. Our staff of 10 (mostly part-time) are devoted to the hard work of investing in the process of personal and community growth, presenting community as a garden that we work together for the nourishment of all, something that will be messy and hard but fruitful.
