If you are a parent of a student at one of the universities where Christian Union operates, we hope you are encouraged to know Christian Union is committed to developing the faith and godly leadership potential of all interested students.

Christian Union is focused on teaching and training students to grow as Christian leaders. The ministry program develops students through:

    • In-depth, small-group Bible courses
    • One-on-one mentorship
    • High-caliber Christian speakers addressing faith and vocation

A significant aspect of the ministry is its exceptional ministry fellows; Christian Union’s ministry faculty has substantial education and real-world experience.

In addition, many ministry fellows have families and open their homes reguarly to students, meeting the need students have for regular contact with a Christian family. Visit the university page for your campus to learn more about the faculty.



"We have seen first-hand the way our son has grown in his faith, been mentored and discipled, and given opportunities to lead through Christian Union. This is a place where students, who are seeking to know more about Jesus, can come. They will be loved and cared for in a Christ-like way." 

- Dr. Keith and Jennifer Superdock
  Parents to Matt, Princeton Class of 2013

While a parent's role changes, there are significant ways to support your student's growth spiritually:
