Here at the Episcopal Church Center at the University of Miami we welcome YOU. Yes, you! Whatever your creed, race, nationality, or sexual orientation you are welcome into our community. The only requirement is that you want to be here!
We are here to serve all students at the University of Miami. Since the late 1990's we have collaborated with a local Lutheran Church in our outreach to students. The words “Episcopal“ and “Lutheran“ do not describe whom we are here to serve; rather they describe what we have to offer. By no means are all of our Chapel students Episcopalian or Lutheran. We typically have Baptists, Roman Catholics, members of the United Church of Christ, Presbyterians, and many others too. Even people of no specific belief and other seekers have also been part of our worshiping community. Any and all students who are interested in joining us are welcome.
For seventeen years we have worked in partnership with a local Lutheran pastor (Pastor Arnold Perry) in our student ministry on campus. Pastor Perry retired in May. While we continue to look for our next Lutheran pastor to partner with us, we will carry on with our typical UM worship style incorporating both Lutheran and Episcopalian facets.
Through weekly worship, student suppers, discussions, and special events, we encourage discourse in our community on all subject matters.
If you're looking for friendly faces, interesting discussions, and a welcoming safe space, check us out!
