Rev. Groves
Rev. Lindsey A. Groves

Campus Minister & Executive Director

I was born in our nation’s capital and lived in various cities in Florida, but I primarily grew up around the lakes, where I fell in love with rowing. Don’t hold it against me, but I rowed at the University of Tennessee, in Knoxville.

A couple years later, after living and working in Colorado, a few good road trips, and some overseas backpacking, I went to seminary at Duke... where I focused on pastoral care and reformed worship. I've had a decade of great ministry experiences... working with youth and young adults, at academies and camps, in hospitals, and learning with people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as leading worship alongside a bunch of cool churches. I love how UKirk connects us to others... and introduces young people to all sorts

of new (and sometimes very OLD!) things. You can reach out to me at:
