Jesus’ ministry was one of movement, never spending very long in the same place, always going where there were people in need of an encounter with God. This very idea is the driving force behind outreach ministry at University. We want to be known as a church of movement--in our community and around the world – always seeking after the one who needs to have an encounter with the living God as revealed in Jesus Christ. In order for this mission to be accomplished, it falls to those who call this place their spiritual home to be about the kingdom-building work of outreach.

The world has come to us! Did you know that thousands of certified refugees from countries around the world now live here in San Antonio, within a few miles of our church?
