What is exodus?
Exodus is a weekend retreat connecting new TCU students with older students and Fort Worth churches to provide incoming students with lasting community on the foundation of Jesus Christ and the Gospel. The retreat consists of small group discussions, worship and speaker sessions, and plenty of fun games and activities. Exodus welcomes pastors from five local churches to speak during the retreat. We believe this, alongside our selection of step-above, older-student counselors from a distribution of local churches, give attendee students a unifying look into the Fort Worth local church and christian community at TCU.
Where & When is Exodus?
The 2019 Exodus Retreat will be held at Camp Copass just a short drive away from TCU in Denton, Texas. We will travel together via busses with professional drivers. We will depart on Friday, September 13 from TCU in mid-afternoon, however students requiring late departure due to class or other commitments will certainly be accommodated. We will return to TCU on Sunday, September 15 in the late morning. Should you wish to attend the Exodus Retreat, but need to arrange an early departure, please contact us to discuss your situation.
How much does Exodus Cost?
The Exodus Retreat costs $145 until September 1. After September 1 the cost is $160. In order to keep the cost minimal, and to display our commitment to the mission and purpose of Exodus, each of our leadership staff and counselors also cover their financial portion of the retreat. In addition, we offer scholarships to all students who are financially unable to attend Exodus. If you are interested in a scholarship please contact us.
Is Exodus Fun?
As an incoming student to TCU, you have so many opportunities and it is hard to know if Exodus is an opportunity worth your time. Anyone who has ever been would definitely assure you, IT IS! If you would like to see proof, please take a look at our Instagram! Exodus not only offers you a chance to bond with your fellow incoming students over delicious food, adventurous games, and shared memories, but also connects you with some of the coolest older students around. If you would like to talk to an Exodus alumni or a current counselor, please contact us! We would love to connect you with someone so you can get all your questions about the retreat answered by someone who was once in your same shoes!
