History of UCCFS
The history of United Council of Christian Fraternities and Sororities (UCCFS) begins with the dream of Visionary Founder Shirley K. Russell of Alpha Nu Omega Christian Fraternity and Sorority, Inc. She had the dream of bringing together Christian fraternities and sororities in a united body to meet the challenges that their unique organizations face. She envisioned a Council that would allow Christian fraternal organizations an environment for cooperative ministry.
In August 2006, the leadership of three such organizations came together—Alpha Nu Omega, Inc., Delta Psi Epsilon Christian Sorority, Inc. and Men of God Christian Fraternity, Inc. National Presidents Curtis M. Brown, Vila-Sheree Watson, Bryan K. Miller and Visionary Russell met during the national convention of Alpha Nu Omega in Virginia Beach, Virginia to form an alliance dedicated to bring together Christian fraternities and sororities for a greater ministry purpose.
