The Protestant Campus Ministry (PCM) at the University of Hartford provides opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to live and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. PCM is interdenominational and multiethnic, with students actively involved and growing from various backgrounds. Although we hold to traditional Christian values and believe in the authority of the Bible, we are highly relational; we love people! We are always looking to do life with and learn from as many people as possible! 

We gather corporate worship on

  • Sundays at 6 p.m. in East Hall, Room 221
  • Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. in Auerbach Auditorium in Hillyer Hall. 

Our Sunday evening worship services are one hour in length. It is includes singing, praying, and the occasional student mini message. Our Tuesday night worship services last about an hour and thirty minutes. This service features singing, praying, communion, connection time, and relevant and engaging messages.

We scatter into smaller groups for various faith groups and small group Bible studies throughout the week.

We provide the following services:

  • Spiritual mentoring for anyone interested in exploring the Christian faith
  • Discipling for anyone wanting to grow as a follower of Jesus
  • Training for ministry or evangelization
  • Spiritual guidance and support in time of crisis or in dealing with a difficult circumstance
