A Welcoming Community

As a United Methodist institution, faith and religion are vital aspects of life at McMurry. Through diverse programming, the Religious and Spiritual Life (RSL) division fosters the exploration of faith traditions, spirituality, philosophies, and life values within higher education.

RSL programs and activities bring together the campus community. The tapestry of our campus is diverse, creating inspiring experiences for all who participate. Gather for weekly worship, make new friendships, join a mission trip, gain leadership experience, and develop a servant’s heart as you advance spiritual knowledge.

Bring your beliefs, ask questions, and explore varying viewpoints, as a part of your ongoing faith journey. No matter where you find yourself, we welcome all walks of life with open arms. We promise to support and help you to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly through your time here.
