University Christian Church seeks to embody God’s inclusive love through creative and vibrant worship and by working toward peace and justice in an ever-changing world.

Clergy & Staff

University Christian Church is a progressive, welcoming, Open & Affirming community that brings people together through worship, love, faith, and service to others by following the example of Jesus Christ.

Artist in Residence

University Christian Church is proud to host an Artist-in-Residence.


In addition to the Hillcrest Preschool, which we run, UCC is also the home to several partner organizations which meet on our campus.  Not including church or preschool events, we have well over 1,000 different people on our campus every week!


Hillcrest Preschool was founded in 1970 by University Christian Church as part of our overall ministry to provide quality childcare at affordable rates to the San Diego community.
