The Plunge

The San Antonio Plunge is a five-day, pre-orientation mission event sponsored by Trinity's Chapel Fellowships. The Plunge is an awesome way to connect with other first-years, meet veteran students, and get to know a bit about San Antonio, all within the context of faith, mission and service.

WHERE: Downtown & Around San Antonio

WHAT: The San Antonio Plunge is a five-day mission event sponsored by Trinity's Chapel and Chapel Fellowships. After moving your belongings into your campus room, we will take up residence in downtown San Antonio, spending our days involved in various service opportunities around the city, and our nights in fellowship, reflection, worship and fun! The Chapel Fellowships are Christian faith fellowships that meet weekly on campus for worship and fellowship, host retreats, pursue service initiatives and sponsor other special events.
