University Student Ministry
The Unity of the Brethren sponsors a ministry to college, university,
and community college students with Unity of the Brethren connections.
The Student ministry maintains contact with over 100 students across the state
of Texas. During the school year, monthly "Meet-n-Eat" gatherings take
place at College Station (for students at Texas A&M and Blinn), Austin
(for students at UT and Texas State and other area schools), Temple (for
students at Temple College, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, and Central
Texas College), and Waco (for students of Baylor, McClennan County College,
and Texas State Technical College). At these gatherings, students
get a meal and time to visit with Ministry Volunteers, including pastors
and lay persons. Depending on student interest, Bible Study opportunities
will be offered. Another student fellowship is forming in San Angelo
for students at Angelo State.
This ministry is eager to have contact information about students
from Unity of the Brethren congregations and relatives of Brethren church
members. Please include Name, School, Congregation (home church or the
church of the suggesting person), email address, postal address, phone number,
etc. As we gather more information and as there are sufficient numbers and
interest, other gatherings can be organized in other areas of the state.
The list of names and schools is published yearly as a prayer guide for intercessors
who wish to support and encourage students.
For information about the fellowship at Angelo State, contact Rev. Tommy Tallas, pastor of the Wall Brethren Church. For all other areas of the
state, contact Dr. Mark Labaj.
