Collegiate Ministries

Collegiate Ministries seeks to provide and assist with the varied religious activities and opportunities available to students at The University of Virginia's College at Wise. 

UVa-Wise is a place where you can grow mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially (Luke 2:52).

On campus, we have an active United Methodist Wesley Foundation and Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) with campus  staff appointed to UVa-Wise. Each group provides many opportunities for making friends, support, spiritual growth, mission trips, and ministry projects. Wesley Foundation and BCM have buildings adjacent to campus that are available daily for recreation, study, or to just "hang out."

Tupos, Wesley and BCM are the three currently-active student organizations at UVa-Wise.  Links to Wesley and BCM are in the menu at left, and you can learn more about Tupos at

Students are welcome at area churches, where almost every expression of the Christian faith can be found. Many other world religions are practiced in the area, too.
