UCO Grand Rapids

Who We Are

University Christian Outreach in Grand Rapids began with a group of students at Grand Valley State University who had seen the way the Lord was working through other UCO chapters around the country and had a vision of bringing the same enthusiasm and life to their own campus. Now students from Grand Rapids Community College, Calvin College, Kendall, and Aquinas are also involved with the UCO chapter in Grand Rapids.

Our weekly prayer meetings are on Wednesdays at 8pm. Check out the UCO GR Calendar for up-to-date information http://ucoweb.org/gr/calendar/
