TCU Disciples on Campus
Disciples Campus Ministry at TCU takes many forms, but its essential purpose is to provide a presence for the Disciples of Christ students at Texas Christian University. Through Disciples Campus Ministry, students have an opportunity to embrace wholeness in a fragmented world. This is taught through exploration of the Bible, articulation of one’s own faith and beliefs, and focus on who Jesus is calling them to be by loving and serving all creation.
Disciples on Campus (or “DOC”) is the on-campus student organization, led by Rev. Lea McCracken, Disciples Campus Minister, and students leaders. Through DOC, students come together weekly for fellowship, worship, study, and service. The following events are just a few of the opportunities that will be happening this year:
Table Time – On Mondays, students will come together to worship, break bread, pray, and reflect on God’s word.
Toolbox – a series for first-year students offered each fall and led by upper-class student leaders. Toolbox is a place to come, be with others, ask questions, and explore the world of college over a free meal.
Shabbat Retreat – come to the beautiful Disciples Crossing campsite down in Athens Texas and take an opportunity with fellow Disciples students each semester to pause and take rest (or simply learn how to stop).
DOC’n Donuts – Once a week during the fall and spring semesters, Disciples on Campus (“DOC”) gives out free donuts and drinks to hungry students at the founders statues by the library. This is our way of serving fellow students in a rush to get from one class to another, and offer a moment of hospitality and fellowship.
Lily Pads – New for Fall 2016, small groups are coming to Disciples Campus Ministry, beginning with a male group and a female group. These groups will focus on a deeper study of our faith and building community with one another.
