FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
You’ll notice that we say “who” and not “what.” That’s because at the heart we’re not just a campus ministry organization, a system, or an event. We’re a community. We don’t go to FOCUS – we are FOCUS!
Spend any time with us and you’ll quickly see we’re all different–different majors, different places in our education, from different states, countries, and ethnicities. We grew up differently and with different faith backgrounds.
But we have some important things in common!
We recognize that college is a unique time of our lives and we want to make the most of it. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” As we choose to follow Him we are experiencing that to be true.
Jesus also 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. All of us in Core have the opportunity to meet regularly with a student leader to help us grow in following Jesus well. Those student leaders are mentored by a Campus Pastor who helps pastor our community.
But we aren’t just about ourselves…
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 Dallas community, and for the world, so you’ll find us sharing the good news about Jesus all over – out on campus, in our commons, 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.
Hopefully we will have the opportunity to bless your college experience in some way.
