In addition to financial contributions, there are many ways to support our students.

Supporting Congregations

Labyrinth is supported by six wonderful congregations in Austin, representing four denominations: University Baptist Church (founding), University Christian Church (founding), Congregational Church of Austin, First Austin, MCC Austin, and Church of the Savior. Labyrinth would not exist without their love, financial support, and guidance on our board. If your congregation is interested in partnering with us, please email our senior minister, Rev. Shelby Nowland.


We have dinner in the lounge every Sunday after worship, provided by supporting congregations, community groups, and individual volunteers. If you would like to provide dinner one Sunday evening, please email our associate minister, Haley Sommerfeld.

From time to time, we have guest speakers, Bible study leaders, panelists, meditation leaders, and other ways for supporters to spend time with our students. If you would be interested in leading worship, Bible study, or meditation group, please email Rev. Shelby Nowland.

Our Board is made up of members from the supporting congregations who serve one year terms starting in July. If you’re interested in serving on the Board, please talk to your minister.

Have other gifts we haven’t mentioned yet? Want to offer your services and expertise to help our students? We’d love to hear your ideas!


The easiest way to support Labyrinth is to shop at and select Labyrinth Progressive Student Ministry as your designated charity. We’ll get a small percent of your purchase with no additional cost to you.

We also have fundraisers at our supporting congregations from time to time, usually near Thanksgiving or Christmas.

In-Kind Gifts

We have an Amazon wishlist for items we use frequently. But don’t feel like you have to get them from Amazon! If you find these items somewhere else, please feel free to bring them by the office at University Christian Church (2007 University Avenue). Food donations are greatly appreciated, especially individually packaged snacks and drinks and gift cards to Starbucks, HEB, or Target.

Thank you for supporting our students!
