Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry serves the students, faculty, and staff of Concordia University Texas, by inviting all to gather, grow and go on mission with Jesus.

No matter who you are, what you believe, how much you know about God or the Bible, or what you have done, we want you to know that you belong here. The love of God is for you. The gift of salvation is a freely given gift for you. Our goal is to walk alongside you and serve you wholeheartedly so that you might meet, know and follow the one who has changed our lives forever, Jesus.

YOU BELONG HERE. Join us.

We are a passionate group of people who follow the teachings and unforced rhythms of grace given by Jesus. We are formed into who God desires us to become by three specific experiences.

GATHER to worship

Jesus invites us to GATHER in a community of friends to meet His presence to worship God. Gather experiences strengthen our relationship with God by forming habits of hearing the Word of God, praying, generosity, baptismal remembrance, showing hospitality, and confessing our sins. Our two main GATHER experiences are the weekly chapel and refuge worship.

GROW in a life group

Jesus invites us to GROW in our relationship with God and other people by being discipled by others. The primary experience in campus ministry to grow in your faith is by joining a life group. A life group is a small group of people who read God’s Word and practice what it says.

GO on a mission trip

Jesus invites us to GO into our daily life to join Him on His mission to help others meet, know and follow Him. Campus ministry offers short-term and long-term experiences in our local Austin community and worldwide.

Enough

Our theme verse is pulled from 2 Corinthians 12:9.  “But God said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” God’s Word expresses that human weakness provides the ideal opportunity to display God’s divine power.

#PACKtheHOUSE

After chapel on Wednesdays we offer snacks and drinks for us all to build community and connection. We hope that every seat would be filled on Wednesdays and many would join us online to unify as a community in worship.

Life Groups

A life group is a small group of people who read God’s Word and practice what it says. Students (and sometimes staff/faculty) of two or more meet weekly to talk about life, read the Bible, pray, and have fun together (often over a meal or drinks). Life groups meet online, on campus, and also off campus. You can join a group or start your own.

Life Group

Chapel

Chapel services at Concordia gather students, faculty, staff, and alumni from various ethnicities, nationalities, languages, cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and theological and liturgical convictions. Chapels are Christ-centered, informed by a Lutheran interpretation of Scripture, and focused on giving glory to Jesus. Christ is honored, and all are welcome.

Chapels are offered three times a week on MWF @ 10 am in the Chapel in the Welcome Center(Building A).

Refuge

Refuge is a student-led worship community once a week on Thursdays @ 9 pm in the Chapel in The Welcome Center (Building A). The refuge name comes from Psalm 9:9, “The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.”
