Welcome To GCF

We are a community of graduate students and postdocs at Duke University exploring and practicing our Christian faith. Everyone is welcome!

Graduate Christian Fellowship

Welcome to GCF’s home page.

Our hope is to be a community of support and encouragement for those who are seeking to bring together faith in Christ and a calling to the academy.  Come walk out this journey with us!  And if you are not a Christian, we welcome you to “check things out” in a safe and understanding circle of friends.

Here is a snapshot of what we do:

Large Group Meetings

**Due to construction on the Duke Chapel, our large group meetings will be held at the Episcopal Center (505 Alexander Ave).**

We meet on Friday nights for dinner followed by some great worship time and a speaker.  These large group meetings usually take place in the Duke Chapel basement Duke Episcopal Center, unless otherwise notified.  The dinners are typically home-cooked and provided by volunteers in the Chapel basement Episcopal Center kitchen.  If you can donate $5 to help pay for supplies, great; but come eat regardless and bring your friends and family — kids are welcome!  

For more details on our large group meetings and other activities, check out the events page. A few summaries of past events can also be found in the blog.
