The Chicago Grad Christian Fellowship Winter Retreat started in 2012 to provide Christian graduate students an opportunity to network and connect with one another while also growing their faith. Originally hosted by the Grad Christian Fellowship at Northwestern University, the event also was attended by students from the fellowship at the University of Chicago. Over the years the retreat has expanded to include graduate students from the Indiana University, Purdue University, University of Illinois, and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. We are excited in 2021 to be able to open this retreat up to grad students all over the Midwest! By having a virtual retreat, we are sad to not have opportunities to meet in person, but we are overjoyed at the ways God has helped us expand our ministry and reach, removing geographical distance as an obstacle to participation.
The Grad Christian Fellowship groups participating in the retreat are a part of InterVarsity’s Graduate and Faculty Ministries. For more information, please contact us.
