We serve over 200 distinct student fellowships or faculty communities on some 100 different campuses. These groups seek to be inter-denominational, multi-ethnic/multi-cultural, and student/faculty led.
Grad student fellowships can come in two forms: campus-wide and inter-disciplinary (often called Graduate Christian Fellowship) or profession-specific (e.g. law, business, medicine, education, social work, etc.). Names of groups vary from campus to campus. There may be more than one fellowship on a given campus.
Faculty communities also come in two forms: some are more organized groups and others are looser networks.
Each community on campus develops its identity and program around GFM’s Four Ministry Commitments. Examples of campus fellowship activities include:
- Small groups for spiritual nurture and support, often including Bible study
- Dinners and other social gatherings
- Overall fellowship gatherings, often including a speaker, worship, discussion
- Prayer meetings
- Discipline-specific reading groups
- Service opportunities
- Outreach and hospitality activities
