Office of Religious and Spiritual Life

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life offers resources, programs and staff dedicated to supporting faith communities, religious expression and spiritual exploration throughout TCU. TCU has a vibrant history as a university affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a tradition that values dialogue, freedom of thought and a mutual concern for all people. The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is committed to respecting the dignity of every individual, celebrating our rich diversity and welcoming all of God's people.

The office is a space to connect, a place to belong and a springboard from which to branch out. Through the office's services, students can connect with a campus ministry or student religious organization; find opportunities for worship, study and fellowship; explore commonalities through interfaith dialogue; and engage in meaningful conversations about life's big questions. The work of the office includes:
