Fellowship is essential for Christian graduate students, professional-school students, and faculty. Meeting regularly with like-minded people facing similar challenges encourages us to remain faithful in our calling as Christian academics and professionals. As we learn and grow together, we are transformed into Christ’s image and sharpened for witness and service.

But what if you can’t find such a fellowship on your campus? Is God calling you to take a step in faith to start a group? If he is and you are wondering how to begin, here are 13 Steps to Starting a Fellowship from InterVarsity’s Graduate & Faculty Ministries. May God bless and multiply your efforts!

The Emerging Scholars Network is a long-haul endeavor that depends on God. In other words, it’s the perfect subject of serious prayer. We hope this cycle of prayers and readings will help you join others before God in thanks and supplication.
