University United Methodist Church, Austin

University United Methodist Church is a United Methodist Church belonging to the Southwest Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. Located at the corner of 24th Street and Guadalupe Street, UUMC has been a fixture near the University of Texas at Austin campus for more than 120 years.

University United Methodist Church began its life in 1887 under the name Austin City Mission. The congregation met in a tiny building called Honey Chapel, which was located one block east of the present location of the church. The first pastor was Rev. John E. Stovall, who served as pastor for one year.

The name of the church changed in 1968, when the Evangelical United Brethren Church joined with The Methodist Church to form The United Methodist Church. At that time, the official name of the church became University United Methodist Church.
