Welcome R-MC Students!


Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church is located on the scenic campus of Randolph-Macon College. We’ve enjoyed a long relationship with the institution and its students.

When our former Director of Discipleship and Youth Ministries took a new position, she didn’t go far! Kendra Grimes is now the Chaplain for Randolph-Macon College and the Director of our College Ministries.
