Who We Are
Ann Arbor UCO seeks to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to students at the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, and Washtenaw Community College.
We are a community of disciples on mission. Our goal is to lead university students into a personal, mature relationship with Jesus Christ and prepare them for a life of radical discipleship. Part of the way in which we do this is by working to create a common life and culture of Christian community together. We look to accomplish all of this while working for unity among Christians from Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox traditions.
