Core Groups

A Place to Belong and Become More Like Jesus

A Core Group is a group of 8-15 students committed to learning to be an extended family on mission at UBCO. It’s a cluster of UCM’ers on mission to love God (UP), love each other (IN), and love a specific area or people group on campus (OUT).

The goal is to help people become and then grow as disciples of Jesus as they work to consistently and creatively serve their specific missional focus. Along with loving their neighbour on campus, Core Groups provide the opportunity to grow in love for God and for each other.
