Cru is a community of students and staff who are seeking to love God and others at SMU. We are a campus ministry of Cru (formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ International), an interdenominational (existing within and across denominations, but not directly associated with any) Christian (we believe that Jesus is the Christ and we follow Him) ministry (working with, and as members of, local churches, but not ourself a church).

We are trying to follow Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we don't even come close to perfect. But we know that Jesus Christ is our only hope, that we desperately need others to help us grow, and that we have been given a true purpose in this life. No matter where you are in this process, if you ever think about or desire any of these things: hope, change, purpose, truth; please join us as we pursue them as well.

The path to spiritual growth – whether it takes us on our own version of the Road to Emmaus, or to Damascus, or another journey of our choosing – requires that we confront our fears, our prejudices and, quite simply, our ignorance. We don’t know what we don’t know. But at Northway Christian Church, our members don’t travel the path of spiritual growth alone. At Northway, we’re disciples – Disciples of Christ and disciples of one another. It’s who we are. It’s the way we are made.

OCF or Orthodox Christian Fellowship is an organization open to all college students by which they can come together for fellowship, prayer, and service. It is a way to rest your brain from your schoolwork so that you can give your soul some nourishment. Because college is such a big challenge, OCF offers a solid group of brothers and sisters in Christ who can stand by you during hard times and offer you family comfort when you are far from home. "And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." (Acts 2:42).

OCF offers a base that you can always touch back on so you don't stray too far from the "needful things" in life. We know that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness. Therefore, "If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin." (1 John 1:7).

We are a worshiping community that looks for the sacred in the ordinary. We seek to follow God by wrestling with holy scripture, gathering weekly around the table for communion, and striving to embody Jesus’s unconditional love in the world.

We are a place where you are invited to come as you are. Bring your doubts and questions, your fears and past experiences, your dreams and wanderings. Bring your whole self. We are an open and affirming community that celebrates and embraces you for who God created you to be.

All of who you are is welcome here. We are a place of nourishment, care, and support. College is hard – this is a community where you can rest, eat (vegetarian and gluten-free options are always available!), de-stress, and connect in meaningful ways with people who care. We are a place where all belong.

Our name, UKirk, means "University Church" -- "kirk" is an old Scots-English word for church. We're associated with a network of campus ministries in the Presbyterian Church (USA), but we're not just for Presbyterians!
