UKirk stands for “university church.” (Kirk is the Scottish word for church.) Some UKirks are campus ministries out of a single congregation, while others are supported by their Presbytery. Some are 501©3s that have been around for decades, while others are recent start-ups that involve part-time leadership. This resource contains things to consider when starting a UKirk Ministry and advice from a former UKirk pastor.
Congregations, mid-councils, national church agencies, and other groups may contact speakers to learn more about indigenous issues, such as the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Apology to Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians or the Doctrine of Discovery. In this sharing, we seek to assist the church in becoming God’s intercultural community and work together to end structural racism and white supremacy. See below names of Presbyterian leaders who are available to speak on indigenous issues, as listed by regions.
This Quicksheet is focused on the fundamental principle that words matter. Guidance is provided on how to shape the language used in speaking about ability; how to look for unintended messages about ability in scripture, curriculum, music, and liturgy; and how to enhance communication, particularly with visual cues.

In addition to being a teaching elder, he is a Licensed mental health clinician but above all, he is a sinner repented saved by grace, attempting to learn what does it mean to be a follower of Christ.
What action did the 219th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) take regarding holding national church-wide meetings?
The 219th General Assembly (2010) adopted a resolution entitled A Call to Stand with Immigrant Presbyterians in Their Hour of Need, which called for the national church to refrain from holding church-wide gatherings in states with legislation “like Arizona’s SB 1070.” The stated purpose of the resolution was to avoid asking Presbyterians to travel to states where a person’s outward appearance or characteristics might subject them to
harassment due to legislation “similar to Arizona Law SB1070.”
