College and Young Adult

Young Adults (Ages 18-39ish)

University partners with several other local churches to form The Foundry, which is a multi-church ministry for young adults (ages 18-39ish) in San Antonio. 

There are many ways to connect with and through The Foundry. We would be happy to visit more about what that looks like for any specific person (just email one of us listed at the bottom of this page!) or check out our website and social media (Instagram or Facebook) for more detailed information and regular updates. 

Community Nights & Foundry Groups

One of the ways The Foundry regularly gathers is for Community Nights (dinner, worship, and teaching that takes place every other Tuesday night), Foundry Groups (small groups hosted at partner churches, including University, based on Community Night teaching), and Social & Service opportunities. The Foundry has roots in a collaboration of churches in our area. This creates a regular rotation of speakers for each community night gathering as well as different worship leaders and church hosts each season (think semester).
