Forum Central

Get started in CU Leadership with Christian Union leaders from across the Central region.

Be trained, equipped and released for student mission.

From main meetings to a host of tailored seminars, our team of UCCF Christian Union Staff and Relay Workers will ensure that you begin your year of CU leadership encouraged and equipped for all that lies ahead.

Share ideas and be supported

Forum Central gives you the opportunity to meet with CU leaders from across the region so you can share ideas, pray for student mission and stand with one another as you lead your Christian Union this year.

Who’s it for?

CU Leaders

Are you on the CU Committee? Or perhaps you have another role, such as being on the Mission Planning team? If you’re a CU leader and you’ve been given this flyer then Forum Central is for you!

Small Group Leaders

We’ll be running a CU Small Group Leaders’ seminar for those involved in this exciting ministry. You will be trained in how to lead your group humbly, faithfully and with a missional focus.

Small CUs

If you are part of a small CU, you are likely to be helping lead it even if you’re not officially a leader. Bring along the group from your CU and we will help you think through how to apply a cutting edge small CU mission strategy.

Our Speaker

Pete Dray will be speaking in our main meetings helping us meet and enjoy Jesus in the Scriptures. Pete has been involved in student ministry for many years and is currently UCCF’s Head of Creative Evangelism. He speaks at CU Events Weeks around the country and develops resources and training to help CUs be effective in mission in their particular university context. He will encourage and inspire us to live as faithful, worshipful and missional followers of Jesus.
