When your life runs on "student time" and your work load changes weekly, it's helpful to have a variety of worship opportunities. Our campus worship gatherings are student-inspired and planned with guidance from Chaplain Mary K. Briggs. Each service is student-led, unique, and dynamic. Regardless of affiliation with a denomination, all students are welcome to any of our worship opportunities.
The Echo is sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Each service is centered around contemporary praise music, a speaker, and prayer.
