Presbytery of Western North Carolina

Three of the nine Presbyterian related colleges and universities in North Carolina are within the bounds of our Presbytery: Lees-McRae College at Banner Elk, Montreat College at Montreat, and Warren Wilson College at Asheville.

In 2015, the Presbytery established a UKirk Campus Ministry at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee.

A Presbytery Committee – the Campus Mission Committee – provides resources to support, encourage, and interpret the work of ministry of these campus ministers and chaplains.

You are invited to visit these campuses online and to communicate with these individuals who serve in the leadership of our ministries in higher education.

Western Carolina University

The Board of UKirk WCU is working diligently to find new leadership for UKirk WCU. We are grateful for all of you who bear with us in this transition and we look forward to connecting in new and growing ways soon!
