The Episcopal Church (TEC) welcomes all regardless of age, ability, physical or mental health, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity, income, education, political affiliation or faith commitment. You belong among us.

TEC@RU is a group of Episcopal Churches committed to the spiritual and physical well-being of the students, faculty, and staff of Rowan University. Chiefly, we like to pray, we like to socialize, and we like to eat! You are invited to join us for these FREE events this semester! Bring a friend!

Becky Zartman, Canon Missioner for Welcome and Evangelism at Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, Texas, and co-author of Belovedness: Finding God (and Self) on Campus, as we learn more about the best practices of exploring & developing spirituality and faith during college.
