Freshman Leaders in Christ (FLiC) is a Freshman Leadership Organization at Texas A&M University in College Station. FLiC is centered around freshmen growing in their relationship with Jesus and developing leadership skills that prepare them to be leaders in the church. Freshmen are divided into six committees, each of which focuses on a different area of service. Sophomore and junior staffers guide freshmen in growth, lead committees, and serve behind the scenes. Each freshman is paired with an older student known as a brother or sister in Christ (BiC or SiC). BiCs and SiCs develop friendships with their freshman and mentor them throughout their first year at Texas A&M.
"It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Matthew 20:26-28 ESV
At the core of FLiC are the freshmen who make up the bulk of our membership. We accept 60 freshmen each year who, in addition to growing in their personal relationship with Jesus, organize FLiC's many service projects and engage in outreach activities on and around the Texas A&M campus.
Freshmen are organized into six committees which are the basic social and organizational units of FLiC. Committee members spend time together during retreats, service projects, meetings, and hangouts, which provide a key source of community. In addition, each committee oversees a particular aspect of FLiC's service by planning and directing projects within its purview.
