Meet Christus Rex

Christus Rex is a campus church with a worship that is encouraging, uplifting and challenging. The messages are relevant and students are always a part of worship leadership. Come and meet our pastors and the people call this their church on campus.  Check out the choir too.

Come as you are! Even if you think you don't fit in at church, check us out. This is a church that welcomes everyone - no exceptions, no fine print, just open and inviting. Come and see for yourself why students have been calling Christus Rex their home away from home for 75 years.

Pictured are four students who were welcomed as Deacons at Christus Rex.

Deacons

Do you want to be a deacon? For over 40 years at Christus Rex, students have answered “Yes”! to this question. They have convenanted together to regularly study scripture, the Lutheran Confessions, and explore more deeply the liturgical life of the community. At Christus Rex, the focus of the Deacon Ministry is worship and service leadership.

Christus Rex has been gifted by creative student leadership for many years. Deacon Ministry is one important way to become a leader within this community. Deacons gather each Tuesday evening for community building, service, and prayer. The deacons offer primary worship leadership at Christus Rex each week. Your gifts might well find expression through deacon ministry and the Rex. Ask a current deacon about the program.

Ministry Teams

Seven ministry teams made up of students, faculty, and community people give direction to the day-to-day witness and work of Christus Rex. They are Worship, Service Learning, Interpretation, Resource Management, Presence, Building and Grounds, and Center for Faithful Leadership.

A Coordinating Committee (comprised of the ministry team chairs) and Executive Committee offer coordination to the work of the ministry teams and care for personnel matters.

Leadership is at the heart of the church as well as this campus ministry. We feel that this leadership system exercises the gifts of students, faculty, staff, and community people for creative envisioning and implementation of ministry.
