As a part of the Christian Churches (Disciples of Christ) we are affiliated with many colleges and universities around the country.  Closest to home, we are affiliated with Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.  These schools receive funding through Disciples Mission Fund and pledge to serve and care for Disciples students and the church. Every year, we take an offering to send to Disciples Mission Fund in support of these schools. Through this covenant relationship, TCU and the other Disciples colleges emphasize the spiritual faith and values of the denomination and work to prepare students for life. They also demonstrate a strong, liberal arts, value-oriented approach to education.  You can find out more about these schools at the following website: http://www.helmdisciples.org/colleges/index.htm
