A small Bible study that has grown into a nationwide organization is starting another semester dedicated to uniting women at TCU and impacting the Fort Worth community.

Delight Ministries is a college women’s community that grows together, serves together, learns together and does life together while chasing the heart of God, according to their website.

The TCU chapter of Delight started the spring semester with its first meeting on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. in Beasley Hall.

The ministry was brought to TCU on Jan. 19, 2016, by junior communication studies major Brooke Ingram.

“Our vision is to maintain a genuine culture of women that love Jesus and want to share that with other women at TCU,” Ingram said. “We would love to get more involved this year with community service and doing events like worship nights, dinners and parties.”

Delight is a group for all types of women. Junior communication studies major Francesca Bartolomucci said she sees a lot of division on the TCU campus and Delight brings all women together with Christ as the center.

First-year sociology major Haley Redding said Delight embraced her and made her feel a part of the TCU campus and the Fort Worth community through different service projects.

Delight has impacted the Fort Worth community by volunteering for the NET Fort Worth and Arise Africa. According to its website, the NET serves three impoverished Fort Worth communities: the homeless, women affected by the sex industry and low-income youth. Arise Africa is an organization committed to helping individuals with their spiritual, economic and physical poverty, according to their website.

Ingram said she encourages women to come to Delight because any woman can benefit from attending, and the group wants to be a resource for them.
