History[edit]

Disciples Divinity House grew out the Disciples Foundation at Vanderbilt that was organized in 1927. The first residence was purchased in 1942 and the organization was officially named Disciples Divinity House. A new facility was purchased in 1959 and later expanded.[1] Currently, it is a scholarship foundation and a home for Disciples at the Divinity School at Vanderbilt. It is a place where Disciple students live and gather for worship and meals, for social events and programming, for study groups and support.
