AACF UCSC

About Our Chapter

The vision of AACF at UC Santa Cruz is to seek and understand God’s character, our identities as Christians, and our purpose as Christ-followers. Our aim is to connect the students on campus to be participating members of the local churches, to learn from generational mentors, and to be an impactful member of the community as a Christian.


Reestablished at UCSC in 2010, AACF UCSC is a growing community Christians on a campus that has invested in the lives of over 300 students and sees an increasing number of new believers every year. Our community provides students with a collegiate family where they can explore their faith, develop their gifts, and find life-long friendships. Our hope is to be able to challenge the predisposed position on where God lies within our hearts and in our lives so that “we will be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Then we will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.”


We continue to work alongside the local churches to provide an open space for anyone to seek God out and having brothers and sisters of Christ walk alongside each other on their spiritual journey.


Our alumni continue to be leaders making an impact for God on the campus as volunteer or paid campus ministers, in the local church as pastors or ministry leaders, in the workplace as managers, teachers, health care professionals, etc., and in the world as career missionaries.

Supporting Ministry at UCSC

As you are aware, AACF UCSC is a student-run parachurch. We work along side the church, but are not funded by any outside entity. Without the encouragement, spiritual and financial support, prayer, and ultimately God’s will, AACF at UCSC would not be what it is today. Because AACF is student-supported ministry, costs for participation are borne by current students. We ask that you may continue to walk with us this year and keep us accountable to be rooted in Christ. While we covet your prayers, we ask for your financial participation as well. Your donation will help offset the cost of retreats, speaker fees, facility reservations, and event materials. We never want a student to avoid participation because he/she cannot pay the cost.

As a student-run ministry, we humbly accept any financial support to assist and serve any newcomers, returners of AACF, as well as to fund AACF events and equipment. We ask that you carefully consider giving back to this campus ministry in prayer and offering. If you feel God leading you to give back to your ministry in donations and offerings, please feel free to utilize the online donation/giving option on this website.
