2021 IL/IN Graduate Christian Fellowship Winter Retreat

Walking with Jesus: Spiritual Formation in the University

Join us for the Grad Christian Fellowship Winter Retreat Friday evening, January 22 through Saturday, January 23 at 12:30 pm. Together via Zoom video meeting, we’ll explore the theme Walking with Jesus: Spiritual Formation in the University with students from Chicago area schools, the University of Illinois, Purdue, and others. In-person, on-campus gatherings may be possible as well. Whether you’ve been following Jesus for a while, are new to the journey, or perhaps are still pondering your faith, we welcome you!

Our hope is that through this experience you will:

  • Connect with interesting and friendly grad students from across IN/IL
  • Learn how to better pray for your life on campus and your university
  • Have practical next steps for responding to Jesus’ invitation to join his mission in the university

Guest Speaker

Our speaker for the weekend will be Elizabeth (Lisa) Sung, Ph.D. She teaches theology courses for Regent College (Vancouver, British Columbia) and partner academic institutions in China, and is a Visiting Researcher at the University of St. Mary of the Lake (Mundelein, Illinois). In both academic and ministry contexts, she teaches theology aiming to foster the lived reality of personal integrity and flourishing in Christ, within a framework that reconnects systematic theology to spiritual formation, moral transformation, and missional living.
