Interdenominational Worship Community

"When somebody told me that they have IWC... I went and I was like, 'Now this is my fit.'"

The Interdenominational Worship Community is one of the student fellowships that meets on campus for church services every Sunday afternoon. They are affiliated with the Church of Love, a local Rochester community church, whose pastor (Bishop Parris) comes and preaches to them. In addition to their weekly worship services, IWC also holds weekly Bible studies open to all members, as well as group events - many involving the city community - throughout the whole semester. Finally, IWC and Church of Love have predominantly African American congregations. The quotes below come from student questionnaires and interviews with students and the Bishop.
