Episcopal Campus Ministry @ VCU

Last Updated: May 22nd, 2024

The Pace Center is an inclusive, multicultural, VCU community. Pace is a place where students feel their unique stories and gifts are valued. As a collaborative ministry of the United Methodist, Episcopalian, Presbyterian (USA), United Church of Christ, and Lutheran Church, we believe all are created to live in deep relationship with one another, not in isolation. We also believe every individual has been created with infinite value and an important role to play in their community.

We Equip and Empower Servant Leaders

Pace is located in the heart of VCU’s campus. We are grounded in traditional ministries such as Bible Study, weekly communion, and small groups. At the same time we offer innovative ways for students to explore their spirituality and find community. At Pace, students create and lead programs that showcase their gifts and the gifts of the VCU community.
