College is an exciting time in a person’s life.

It is the beginning of your life out on your own, facing the new experiences and challenges of adult life. There are choices that have to be made to follow one’s faith and stay on the path of Jesus Christ.

It’s also the time when your faith becomes your own. Bobcats for Christ offers you the support and guidance needed to make these choices. With Bible studies and group activities, you can participate in an environment that encourages a deepening of Christian faith, an increasing knowledge of God’s Word, and the building of friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

We would like for you to be a part of Bobcats for Christ. 
Whether you are looking for Biblical knowledge, opportunities for mission work, or just a place to call home with Christian friends, we have excellent opportunities for you to get involved and feel right at home. Bible studies, praise & worship opportunities, service projects, and mission trips, and many other activities help to strengthen our spiritual lives. But above all, the focus and goal of Bobcats For Christ is to glorify and serve our mighty God and lift up his name at Texas State University and around the world!

The McCarty Student Center continues to serve as the home of the campus ministry to this ever expanding Texas State University which now occupies three sides of the McCarty property. The center is truly in the midst of this growing campus. It is here that the campus community of nearly 40,000 people at Texas State University can be reached. Our mission is not only to provide a Christian environment where students can associate with each other during this transitional time of their lives, but to help them continue devloping and strengthening their own faith. During this exciting and challenging time of transition into independent adults, college students will face choices that will influence the paths they take not only through college life but often throughout much of their adult lives. McCarty Student Center provides an environment and a caring staff to guide these young adults in making good choices.

We consider McCarty our students’ “home away from home” not only in its physical presence but through its spiritual encouragement in their lives. With Bible studies and group activities, young adult Christians can participate in an environment that encourages growth in Christian principles and knowledge as well as making a lifetime of friends and memories. The proof is in the action of college students and alumni as they teach, preach, evangelize, and serve the Lord’s church in San Marcos and throughout the world.
