There are over 300,000 college students that attend school within the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas! It is amazing what happens when college students gather to ask honest questions of scripture, earnestly follow Jesus, and share life with each other. We hope you will join us to further this vision of God’s kingdom breaking through on college campuses.
The Diocese of West Texas is committed to creating and sustaining relationships with students who are attending institutions of higher education inside and outside its borders.
