The Thanksgiving Offering, received on Nov. 15 and 22, directly supports programs and students on the campuses of Disciples-related institutions of higher education, including 15 colleges and universities as well as seven theological institutions.
Despite this year’s unprecedented challenges, Disciples-related schools continue to be places that not only provide education to students, but guidance and care as well.
“Living as a missionary kid and now as a pastor’s kid, I know my family was not financially stable enough to support my educational expenses,” Yejin Lim, a junior majoring in business at Texas Christian University, shares. “However, the extra financial support I received as a Disciple made it possible for me to attend TCU.”
Beyond the financial support Lim also said TCU has broadened her perspective of the world and empathize with others.
“Disciples on Campus has especially created a welcoming space for conversations and occasions to connect with the local community. I have grown academically, spiritually, and professionally from all the opportunities I have faced at TCU.”
On Nov. 15 and 22, please give generously to the Thanksgiving Offering. Your gift makes a difference in the lives of our students and it makes a difference in the world. Give through your congregation or through your ENGAGE account.
