United Christian Campus Ministry Serving North Carolina Central University

The United Christian Campus Ministry was founded in 1962 as a non-profit corporation organized for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a united Christian ministry to the academic community at North Carolina Central University (NCCU). The antecedents of the University’s mission to provide religious guidance for its faculty and students began with NCCU’s founder, Dr. James E. Shepard.

Reverend Michael Page is the existing executive director. According to Reverend Clontz, former Chair of the Board, his leadership has been dynamic, characterized by strong linkages with students, community, and the NCCU administration. He is a member of the Durham Public School Board and a part-time pastor of First United Antioch Baptist Church. He has been able to use his time and energy to restructure the student organizations and create streams of funding through the annual See and Taste fund raiser. According to Mrs. Florine Roberson, Board Member, Reverend Page has also “increased funding from the various judicatories.” Reverend Page has expanded student involvement in the National Baptist Student Union, the Baptist State Convention, and the Spring and Fall Choir tours.

The United Christian Campus Ministry of North Carolina Central University is the longest existing cooperative ministry in North Carolina. It has represented the collaboration of community, judicatories, and the university for forty years. Currently, it works with the Lutheran Campus Ministry, the Catholic Ministry and the Presbyterian Ministry. The United Christian Campus Ministry faces challenges of sustainable fund-raising. Though the support from church groups, judicatories, and the Campus Ministry Board has increased, funds for student conferences and creative programs remain a perennial concern. According to Reverend Michael Page, since September 11, 2001, the United Christian Campus Ministry has played a more functional role on campus by providing enhanced opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to openly seek spiritual guidance. The Campus Ministry will continue to represent a beacon of intellectual and spiritual light in the lives of all who are associated with North Carolina Central University.
