The Presbyterian Church of the Marshall University Campus Ministries is changing its name from PROWL to Ukirk.
Ukirk is a university church and a national network of Presbyterian Churches located on college campuses across the United States.
Its goal is reaching, loving and teaching college students that they may be lifelong followers of the Presbyterian faith.
The Marshall Campus Christian Center, as a whole, is struggling with the number of students who attend. This change is one of many in an attempt to gain more members.
“It’s trying to get new students involved,” said Travie Ross, Campus Christian Center office manager. “When we did lunch for a buck, our numbers were a little lower than usual. We want to gain a little recognition with our church and all of our ministries.”
Ukirk hosts worship services at 8:30 p.m. Monday at the CCC located on campus. Students can attend for food, fellowship, Bible study and prayer.
