A Home Away From Home on the Campus of Texas State University...

As a ministry of the University church of Christ, we encourage students to get involved at the McCarty Student Center for two purposes-
to continue building spiritual foundations and to form lasting bonds with other students.

Located on the campus of Texas State, across from the Admissions building, this structure, known as the McCarty Student center serves as the home base of the college ministry of the University church of Christ:

Building Spiritual Foundations

As young people leave their homes for the first time to come to college, they are faced with worldly bombardments. Colleges and Universities are ripe with atheism, humanism, evolution, postmodernism, moral decay, and false religious teaching. The McCarty Student Center seeks to help college students and other interested young people gain their own spiritual footing. Weekly Bible classes, devotionals, personal studies, semesterly retreats, an on-site campus minister, and Christian friends serve to strengthen the faith of young Christians. Also, the service opportunities afforded individuals at McCarty through mission trips, service projects, and student led events, allow young Christians to put their faith into action.

Forming Lasting Bonds

Friendships made during college years and early adulthood often extend well into and throughout our lives. The McCarty Student Center enables and encourages spiritually minded individuals to meet, become acquainted, and develop real, meaningful friendships. Over the years many of those friendships have grown into husband-wife relationships. These were and are the beginnings of new Christian families. The Christian home is the foundation of good churches and good communities. It is the aim of McCarty to foster personal bonds that last throughout this life. Hopefully, the friendships that are forged in these formative years will encourage and strengthen Christians now and last into eternity.

Matthew 28:19

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
