Prayer & Service

Praying, Student A unique aspect of life in the HRC, is our devotion to prayer and to service. The Memorial Chapel, which was restored and dedicated thanks to the contributions of Ted & Sue Getterman and Bill & Mary Jo Robbins, is the site of daily prayer, mornings (Monday-Friday) and evenings (Monday-Thursday).

Alternative Chapel
Beginning Fall 2013, the HRC began offering alternative chapel credit for any students living in our community who would like to attend HRC Prayer Services instead of Baylor Chapel. Faith undergirds all we do in the HRC and our prayer services are the hallmark of the HRC's Christian commitment. The prayer services offer students a chance to pause amidst the busyness and spend time devoting themselves to God. For those interested in enrolling in HRC alternative chapel, please contact

The Spiritual Growth & Service Committee puts on regular opportunities for its members to devote themselves to serving others in the HRC, Baylor, and Waco.

  • Baylor Kids - One opportunity that takes place each fall during the football season is Baylor Kids. An anonymous donor has partnered with the HRC and the Athletics Department to give underprivileged children in Waco the opportunity to watch a BU football game with Baylor students. Volunteers from the HRC will meet up with the kids before the game and will hopefully begin to develop a mentorship relationship with them as they continue to serve.

  • Buckner International - Serve on a short-term missions trip to either Peru, Kenya, Russia, Guatemala, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. For more information, click here
