Our Mission

UKIRK, a combination of University and an old Scottish word for church, is a Presbyterian campus ministry at Middle Tennessee State University. We are supported by the Presbytery of Middle Tennessee (PCUSA), Murfreesboro Presbytery (Cumberland), and a number of churches from within those presbyteries. 


Christian tradition may be the center of UKIRK MTSU, but we are made up of people of all religious outlooks, backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives. Because it is our belief that all students deserve to be cared for and loved, we affirm and uplift all gender identities and sexual orientations. We seek to use God's love to offer sanctuary and community to those who need it.

It is our goal not only to help students create lasting bonds with each other but also help them as they learn to navigate the increasingly complicated world around them.

Our Home

UKIRK has a house located just off campus where students can meet for food, fellowship, coffee, Wi-Fi, a quiet place to study, or to simply hangout.

If a student needs a place to relax between classes or just to get out of their dorm, they are welcome to stop by. The doors to the house are generally open throughout the school week for students to come in and out as they please.

This house is host to our Monday lunches and Thursday night events, as well as many other events throughout the semester.

Our Minister

Meet UKIRK's current campus minister, Rev. Micah Watson.


Micah attended MTSU for Global Studies and then attended Memphis Theological Seminary, meaning he is not only an MTSU alumnus but also one of UKIRK MTSU, formerly known as PSF.


PSF was a big part of Micah's call to ministry.  The call to "connect faith to life", which was and still in some ways is the abbreviated mission statement of the ministry, is always something that has resonated with Micah. For Micah, ministry was the only way to answer that call, but he firmly believes everyone has a unique calling; he is excited to help current MTSU students explore that, just as he did in his own time at MTSU.
