Welcome To GCF

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

Large Group Dinner

Graduate Christian Fellowship

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.
