WHAT IS RISE?
Rise is a 4-day retreat for incoming Texas State freshmen and transfer students to connect to local churches, and ministries that will provide lasting community on the foundation of Jesus Christ and the Gospel. The retreat consists of freshman engaging in small group discussions, worship and speaker sessions, as well as large group games and activities. In addition, our Ministry Fair allows freshmen the chance to speak with dozens of local churches and ministries from the San Marcos area. We aid freshmen in the transition to college with support and encouragement in a challenging season of life.
The Purpose of Rise
- To provide a four-day retreat offering a time of spiritual growth to incoming freshmen and transfer students, through the unity of the body of Christ, allowing them to see God’s influence at Texas State University, and to provide an arena for them to connect and build godly relationships.
