UKIRK @ SMUUKIRK @ SMU
When UKirk SMU was founded a year ago, we became the only campus ministry that was fully open and affirming to LGBTQ+ students. This week, we celebrate that we are officially a More Light ministry! While we’ve always been a place where all to belong, now we belong to a network of other congregations and campus ministries that are proud to claim LGBTQIA+ folks in our midst and that seek to embrace their gifts and empower them to participate fully and to shape our ministry.
God has called us to be at SMU and to hold this space, and we look forward to this new relationship with excitement and rejoicing.
In this new chapter, we affirm again:
We are a space for belovedness.
We are a space where whole selves are embraced.
We are a space of support and nurture.
We are a safe space for people who identify as LGBTQIA+.
We are a community that evangelizes for the Gospel of inclusion.
We are a place where all belong.
