Zoe is a global progressive Christian student ministry network created by Progressive Christians Uniting in 2022. In ZOE college/university campus groups, students build community, find meaning, and engage in compassionate action.  Zoe is a lively network of networks: bringing together - online and in person - students and campus ministry leaders from many Christian denominations and groups.

In the Bible, the Greek word ZOE means LIFE - the kind of life that Jesus invites us to live. ZOE means living in fellowship with each other, being divinely conscious and in tune with ourselves and the natural world.  ZOE is about Christian practice: fellowship, service, activism for change, worship, and contemplation.  We have no fixed beliefs that we expect everyone to accept: we make room for many interpretations of the Christian tradition.  We are fully LGBTQ+ affirming. 

ZOE evokes Jesus’ habit of welcoming surprising people to discover abundant life around a meal and good conversation. It suggests welcome, fun, connection, challenge, spiritual nurture, and work for social and environmental justice.  Zoe is dedicated to rediscovering the Christian faith as a world-changing movement of inspired young adults.
