Trystan Deck, a member of the Disciples on Campus ministry, said she is most excited to see everyone come together to worship and grow.

Ministers week is put on by TCU and Brite Divinity School. It includes four days of inspiring worship, lectures, workshops and recitals for ministers, students and people in the community.

Lea McCraken, Disciples on Campus minister and church relations coordinator, said the entire week is basically continuing education for all ministers in our nation that are disciples of Christ.

“Most of the ministers this week are graduates of Brite Divinity School and are ordained in Disciples of Christ,” McCraken said. “So, it is a great chance for ministers around the country to get together, be in fellowship together, be in prayer together and encourage one another.”

Brite Divinity School and TCU have been hosting this week of events since 1933.

Newell Williams, the president and professor of modern and American church history, said the theme changes every year.

“This year we are re-examining the doctrine of creation in response to a range of issues in our contemporary world,” Williams said.

Dr. Norman Wirzba, Professor of Theology and Ecology at Duke Divinity School, kicked off the week Tuesday with his lecture about preserving God’s creation.

“We as Christians are required to participate in the healing and restoration of this earth,” he said. “We are all children of God, but it doesn’t stop with people. God loves everything and every place.”

The church was lined with different booths set up to represent different religious organizations on campus and around the Fort Worth community.

Events will continue to take place at the University Christian Church. To see a full schedule, go to the Brite Divinity School website.
