We are part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and a More Light congregation in our denomination, with LGBTQ people participating fully alongside straight allies.

For more than a hundred years, the McKinley Presbyterian Student Foundation has supported Champaign-Urbana college students, faculty, and staff in cultivating a vital religious life. Though we are affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), our campus ministry also respects the many spiritual traditions among those we serve. Many of our activities take place in the foundation building on the U of I campus.

Outreach to University of Illinois students and residents of our student dorm, Presby Hall, is led by Rev. Keith Harris, associate pastor and executive director of the McKinley Foundation.
