University Ministries is the college ministry of Malibu Presbyterian Church. We’ve been around for 27 years doing life with Pepperdine students and walking together with the Lord.
During the school year we meet Tuesday nights at 8pm in the Malibu Pres Fellowship Hall. A typical Tuesday night consists of worship, connecting with the community, teaching, and time to reflect and be with the Lord. During the rest of the week we have a bunch of community events like retreats, mission trips, and cool, local outings.

2018-2019 Theme: THE Year of Jubilee
Leviticus 25:9-10 Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you!
Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the LORD is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.
Psalm 16:11 You will fill me with joy in your presence.
Jesus Christ is the one who brings us good news of great joy! We want this year to be marked by the joy of the Lord - it is a Year of Jubilee for our community. Each month we are going to focus on a practice of joy, replacing old habits of the flesh with new habits of the Spirit.
