Transylvania to offer info session for DOC community March 31

Transylvania University, which has been affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) for more than 150 years, will offer an online info session for DOC students, parents and pastors Thursday, March 31.

Register for the 7 p.m. conversation featuring the Rev. Emily Miller, director of spirituality and religious life, and Johnnie Johnson, vice president for admissions.

The event will be a chance to learn a little about the university — and “ask questions of us directly about all things Transylvania,” Miller said.

“The history of the Disciples reveals a focus on unity in faith, higher education as a path to understanding, and tolerance when faced with differences,” according to the university’s Office of Spirituality and Religious Life. “Transylvania is proud to embrace these same values.”

Located in Lexington, Kentucky — close to where Barton Stone first organized what would become the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) — Transylvania is a relationship-rich university with engaging faculty who encourage community-driven students to achieve personal fulfillment and professional success.

Its Office of Spirituality and Religious Life promotes community service, sponsors lectures and conversations about important issues, and coordinates interfaith services and prayer opportunities.
