|We welcome students to Holy Trinity from all over the city of Chicago. Chicago is comprised of more than 500,000 students, including 50,000 within 1.5 miles of downtown. Holy Trinity Church draws undergraduate and graduate students from the University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, DePaul, Roosevelt, Moody Bible Institute, Art Institute of Chicago, and other colleges and universities across the city. Our ministry to University students comes in three main ways:
Join us for the preaching of God’s word and the worship of Christ at one of our Sunday services. You’ll hear the Bible clearly explained and get to know others who are studying in the city.
At Holy Trinity Church, discipleship happens primarily in smaller settings. One great way to get involved in discipleship is to attend a Community Group.
We would love to have you serve through Hope for Chicago (serving the needy of the city) or serve in our church as well. Just get in touch with a pastor in your local congregation to get involved.
University Ministry - Hyde Park
|Holy Trinity Church's roots were first laid in Hyde Park, and for that reason much of our university ministry happens at the University of Chicago. Beyond the above, university ministry in Hyde Park consists of four primary components: Sunday meals, one-to-one Bible Reading, campus lectures, and partnering with other organizations.
Throughout the academic year, we frequently to gather for a meal in the home of a family who lives in Hyde Park following the
One-to-One Bible Reading
If you are interested in exploring the Bible with someone else One-to-One, email our University Minister, Robert Kinney ().
For 2013, we have two lecture series in motion: Science and Faith in Conversation and our new Conversations series. In the fall of 2012, we also held our final events in the Text and Truth series.
The Science and Faith in Conversation series is a two-year program funded by a Scientists in Congregations grant from the John Templeton Foundation. With excellent lectures by Don Petcher and Tim Morris, Mark Noll, and Loren Haarsma in the 2011/2012 year, we look forward to enjoying three more lectures and dialogues with scientists and scholars who are working on issues in science and faith in the coming year. Speakers will include Rosalind Picard (MIT), Jennifer Wiseman (AAAS/NASA), and others. For more information about the events, visit the Science and Faith in Conversation or contact our University Minister, Robert Kinney ().
We are also launching a new Conversations series in April, 2013. This series will focus on Christian doctrines and will be held on Wednesdays, 4pm-5pm, in Regenstein Library serminar room 402 from 4th week unitl 8th week. We hope you will join us.
Text and Truth was a series of lectures (about three per academic quarter) concerned with the relationship between the Christian faith and the various academic disciplines. The intent of the Text and Truth was to promote the highest quality of academic learning and scholarship informed by the perspective of Christian faith. More information about specific events, dates, and locations is available on the Text and Truth page.
Partnering with Others
Holy Trinity Church also seeks to partner with others for university ministry. We frequently co-host events on campus with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Please see the Campus Lectures pages for details.
