McKinney College

Reaching the World Through the Campus


Fall & Spring Semester | Thursdays | 7-8:30pm | The Hub 

In 2013 a small group of students began meeting weekly to pray over a map of TCU and to ask God how He might use them to reach the world through the campus. Out of that, Encounter was born. With a name taken from Acts 9, we hope that like the apostle Paul, students will have an encounter with Christ and their lives will be forever changed. Since those small prayer meetings God has blessed us with a growing ministry and with opportunities to send students all over the world. We now meet Thursdays at 7pm in the Loft, host fun events like Lake Day and Study Day, and send students to East Asia, Guatemala, and Greece each year. We hope this place becomes home for you, and you experience that life changing encounter with Christ!

Welcome to the family!


For TCU students, we have a shuttle that runs from the BLUU every week at 6:45 on Thursdays and 10:10 on Sundays.
