About United Christian Ministry @ NAU

We are a diverse social, political, cultural and theological group of young adults connected to NAU and CCC and the Flagstaff community.

Not everyone is sure where they stand with faith politics, or various social controversies;

WHAT BINDS US:

Our readiness to journey together as a community from all kinds of different denominations and church experience–journey towards faith, justice and love that we come to understand through worship, prayer, conversations, study and most important, the life and teachings of Jesus.

We are supported by the United Methodist Church, Presbyterian Church USA, Disciples of Christ and United Church of Christ. We welcome young adults from a wide range of backgrounds and beliefs.

We host hikes, live music, coffee houses, game nights, retreats, Bible studies, worship servicemission outings!

We would love to see you at some of our events this year!

In the past, our hearts have been with Syria and the Yazidi Girls as we honored our late friend and Just Peace alum, Kayla Mueller. More recently, we have begun to shift our focus to more local issues such as immigration justice, prison reform, and ending hatred and fear in whatever ways possible here at home and abroad.

“As long as I live I refuse to allow this suffering to be normal” -Kayla Mueller

We too will do what we can to relieve the suffering of others by becoming informed, lifting our voices, extending our friendship, and being active against injustice.
