Ukirk Journeying with young adults as we follow Christ

UKirk calls Rev. Gini Norris-Lane as New Executive Director

The UKirk National Board is pleased to announce that we have called Rev. Virginia “Gini” Norris-Lane as the Executive Director and Campus Ministry Advocate for UKirk.


“We were overwhelmingly impressed by the pool of candidates, a reminder of how deeply talented our campus ministers all across the country are,” said Rev. Katie Owen Aumann, chair of the search committee. “Gini rose to the top because of her depth of experience, her enthusiastic commitment to college students, and her deep desire to pastorally support campus ministers. We believe she will bring fresh energy to the UKirk Network and are excited to have her on board.”


Rev. Norris-Lane brings experience and vision as she steps into the role. “I am honored and excited to come alongside this outstanding UKirk board and work with them to support and expand the campus ministry network of the PC(USA),” said Norris-Lane. “The ministry being done with young adults across the nation is transformative, not only for them but also for the church, and I am thrilled to be able to share the stories of how God’s Spirit is working across the nation on college campuses and in congregations to inspire college students in discipleship and service.”


The role of Executive Director and Campus Ministry advocate is jointly to share the story of campus ministry and to support and connect ministries within the UKirk network. Rev. Norris Lane added, “I look forward to coming alongside campus ministry practitioners to help support, equip and encourage them so they may be strengthened for their important work.” Rev. Norris-Lane will begin her work by gathering with the UKirk National board later this month to set priorities for the coming year.
