CYF Day at TCU
CYF day at TCU is a long-standing annual tradition bringing together CYF high school students from across the region and beyond for a day connecting to the campus and community. Events include campus tours, opening worship, a TCU game, a post-game party on the Jarvis Lawn across from the Robert Carr Chapel and much more. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Ministers Week is sponsored by Brite Divinity School, University Christian Church, and Texas Christian University. Clergy and community members are invited to campus for three days of inspiring worship, thought-provoking lectures, enriching workshops and a world-class organ recital. It is also a valuable opportunity to connect with other clergy and lay leadership to explore best practices and ideas. Registration costs are covered by the sponsors, and online registration and more information can be found here.
Alumni Spotlight Series
Come hear from horned frog Disciples alumni from throughout the country and beyond as they return to the campus to share stories of life after graduation and their experiences making a difference in their professions, communities, and the church!
Crossroads Lecture on Faith and Public Life
Each year, the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life hosts the Crossroads Lecture on Faith and Public Life. With a focus on how religion and religious identity interact with the public sphere, the event delves into topics that are relevant to our times. The topic for the 8th Annual Crossroads Lecture was Vocation, Faith, and COVID-19. We were delighted to host two TCU alum over a virtual panel conversation about how their faith impacted their vocation (both work in healthcare) and how COVID-19 has impacted both their work and their spirituality. This event was a collaboration with the TCU Center for Career and Professional Development in an effort to highlight religious diversity in the workplace.
