Founded in 1968 United Campus Ministries, located across from Angelo State University on Dena Drive, is the only ecumenical,
non-denominational campus ministry representing the students, staff, faculty and administration of  ASU.

Funded by donations from area churches, individuals and grants (when we can find them), UCM is governed by a Board of Trustees with programs and activities planned by a Student Advisory Board and implemented by a Student Program Director.

Our most popular program is Food 4 Thought a weekly free lunch available to all students and staff feeding from 60-70 students (averaging 1% of the student population at ASU) every Wednesday from 11:00 PM - 2:00 PM.  Food is provided by one of our participating denominations and is usually homemade, hot and always delicious.

Other programs include Bible Study, book discussions, theological discussions, movie and game nights just to name a few.  We also enjoy retreats to interesting locations when possible.

St. Francis of Assisi said, “Preach the Gospel where ever you go and use words only if necessary”. At UCM we believe in expressing God’s love through our actions (you will only hear a sermon at worship services).  We are a hate free zone and our arms and hearts are open to everyone regardless of race, color, nationality, sexual orientation, or even faith background.
