DCM Student Ministries

DePaul Christian Ministries supports over a dozen Christian ministries on campus. Learn more about the many ways in which you can find a great community by clicking on the links below.
Often a small group of students may wish to organize among themselves for the sake of faith-filled study and support.  All groups - including those external to DePaul - are asked to contact DCM staff for support and guidance as any faith group forms on campus, even if it's small. More information can be found in our Protocol and Standards document.

Sometimes, off-campus groups not vetted or recognized by University Ministry try to draw students on campus into their ministries, even though this is not permitted. With so many diverse Christian groups already established at DePaul, we think our students can find a faith home within one of them - or start a student-led group themselves, if their needs are not being met!  If you have any questions or concerns about an outside group please contact Rev. Diane Dardón.
