Church Relations


We are thankful for our partnership with the churches in our area and across the state as we work to advance the Kingdom of God. While our main task is educating young men and women we also work to support the work of the churches in our community.

Church Day at ETBU

Church Day is a special tradition for East Texas Baptist University. It is a Chapel service held at the beginning of the Fall semester each year in which we introduce area churches to our students. ETBU encourages our students to connect with local churches during their time with us. For many of the students, this day will be a key factor as they make decisions about which area church to visit. That is why we encourage local church participation on this day. Tables are set up for all participating churches where they may place displays and interact with students. 

Notifications are sent to all churches that participated in the last Church Day. If your church would like to be a part of the next Church Day, please contact us at 903-923-2173.
