Connections for College Students
UCF Campus Ministry

Live UCF is a Campus Ministry anyone can connect to.  We want you to come as you are and leave inspired to be great on campus. So often church becomes just a retreat from every day life with what seems like little connection to the rest of the week.  LiveUCF brings it all together.  Join us in worship, Bible study, and gatherings for retreat time with the Lord that prepares you for your every day life. Join us, connect, and be a part of the LIVE movement at UCF.
