Southern Methodist University
Who are we?
You’ll notice that we say “who” and not “what.” That’s because at the heart we’re not just an SMU campus ministry organization, a system, or an event. We’re a community. We don’t go to FOCUS – we are FOCUS!
Jesus said no one should follow Him by themselves, so as a community, we are involved in each other’s lives. We gather every week in student-led small groups called Cores where we share life, pray, and read the Bible together. We also come together weekly as a large group to worship God, listen to teaching from the Scripture, and share with each other what God is doing in the world.
But we aren’t just about ourselves…
What’s it all about?
In a hurting, broken, needy world, Jesus claims to bring healing, life, and hope – and He sends us as His messengers! We care deeply for SMU’s campus, for the North Dallas community, and for the world, so you’ll find us sharing the good news about Jesus all over – out on campus, in our residence halls, wherever we go.
We would love to have you join us! Bring your enthusiasm and your questions, your faith and your doubts, your gifts and your weaknesses, your dreams and your fears. We’d love to be part of your life at SMU! Our community always has room, wherever you find yourself.
We hope that we will have the opportunity to bless your college experience in some way.
