The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life

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

Through RSL, students can connect with student religious organizations or a campus ministry; find opportunities for worship, study and fellowship; explore commonalities across traditions through interfaith dialogue; and engage in meaningful conversations about life’s big questions. The work of the office includes supporting a vibrant religious life; creating dialogue and learning across traditions; meeting student's spiritual needs; and engaging in social justice, community activism and relief work.

Located on the first floor of Jarvis Hall, The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is home to staff offices, a multi-faith prayer room and the RSL Library and Resource Center. A long-standing part of TCU, Robert Carr Chapel is open daily for prayer and personal reflection, and is available by reservation for worship, weddings and other sacred occasions. In addition to TCU’s religious life staff, students will also find more than 12 full- or part-time campus ministers and religious life partners who offer support, connection and pastoral care.
