About PC(USA) Collegiate/Young Adult Ministries

The PC(USA) Collegiate/Young Adult Ministries support the work of more than 1,300 higher education ministries serving on behalf of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The ministry may be a chaplaincy at a private college, a campus ministry at a state university or a program of PC(USA) congregations located in an academic community. All of these organizations believe colleges and universities are places “where God already is."

Collegiate/Young Adult Ministries is for:


The mission of higher education ministry by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has ministry to, with, by and for college students as its central focus.

Ministry staff

Whether you are a chaplain, campus based minister, congregational staff member or something unique consider this web page as a personal one for you and your colleagues.


Chaplains are persons in higher education ministry who are supported by the educational institutions themselves. They may be known as Chaplains, College Ministers or Deans of the Chapel.

Ecclesiastical partners

Presbytery, synod and regional body related persons with higher education ministry responsibilities are invited to meet their counterparts.


Between on campus ministries and congregations actively reaching out to students, there is a ministry near where your child is attending college.


Not long ago in a presbytery or synod near you, money was routinely allocated to support the collegiate ministries serving the Presbyterian Church.



  • Hi! The First Presbyterian Church of Arlington Heights is supporting college students and families through our year-old CollegeCARE Ministries program, supported by the Youth MInistries team. We held a Parent Nite panel discussion last summer and sent things to students thruout the school year: a Fall newsletter, a winter care card with some goodies, and a spring care package. This summer, we will host a Smart Personal Finance workshop for students. We will very likely have a blog to tell you about. We have more ideas in our master plan to have "activity" or communications in all months of the year. by Nancy Williams on 04/10/2012 at 12:00 p.m.

  • Hi Adrian, [We met when I was on the PACHEM Board] As a current Presbyterian Campus Ministry board member, I am interested in the CMI program - particularly whether it can benefit our ministry. Where do I find more information? by Beverly Yerg on 10/11/2010 at 9:01 a.m.
