Below is a list, by state, of ZOE progressive Christian campus organizations, progressive Christian university chaplains (employed by colleges and universities), and progressive Christian campus ministers (lay or clergy people assigned by churches or other organizations to serve students at particular campuses).  Or look up a group on our MAP

This list is incomplete, and growing!  If you don't see a ZOE affiliate ministry for your campus on this list, go HERE and type in "church" and/or "campus ministry" and then put in the zipcode of your campus and a one-to-five mile radius.  If there's no official campus ministry, there is likely to be a progressive church in your neighborhood where you can find a spiritual home.

Also, check out these networks of denominational campus ministries.  They welcome students regardless of their denominational (or non-denominational) background.  Be aware that while many of their campus ministries are progressive, some are not.  So ask questions when you visit!

Disciples of Christ - United Methodist - Presbyterian USA (UKirk) - Evangelical Lutheran (LuMin) - Episcopal


Note: Many (mostly private) colleges/universities have chaplains who work directly for their institutions and in most cases serve and support the entire student body, across religious differences. They are listed here on the basis of their personal - not institutional - affiliations. Generally, university and college chaplains are very good sources of information regarding how to find progressive Christian groups on campuses.

Getting on this list is simple.  If your campus group or ministry is public about its progressive Christian practice and message, contact us at:  Affiliation is free!
