At Yale, Christian Union Lux provides in-depth study of Scripture, Christian leadership training, mentoring, fellowship, and support for Christian students. It also provides resources and opportunities to help any interested students — whatever their spiritual background or beliefs — learn more about Christianity.

The ministry's main activities include Bible courses, a weekly lecture series, called Rooted, conferences, and various outreaches on campus. 

In addition, Christian Union owns and operates the James W.C. Pennington Center at Yale. 

Christian Union is an independent Christian ministry.
