What is Union all about?

  • Union’s vision is to grow leaders for growing churches, to see churches flourish in the gospel
    and drive forward in mission. They are strong partners in the work of church planting and
    have already invested very considerable spiritual and financial resources into training up and
    sending out church planters.
  • Union’s theological DNA is strongly reformed, joyfully Trinitarian and Christ-exalting. They
    seek to raise well-rounded leaders: humble leaders of head and heart who delight in God,
    grow in Christ, serve the church and bless the world.
