The Harvard Graduate School Christian Fellowship (HGSCF) is a University-wide community of Harvard students, faculty, staff and friends who are fascinated with Jesus and are curious about what his life and teaching mean for us, for our study in the University and our work in the world.

The HGSCF is sponsored by InterVarsity's Graduate & Faculty Ministries and is affiliated with The Harvard Chaplains. We also work alongside ministries on many Boston campuses: visit our Boston-wide grad ministry.

Bearing Witness
A Workshop on
Responding to Questions
- Curious Questions
- Hostile Questions
- Questions that defeat you

With Dr. Finny Kuruvilla

Saturday, Jan 31, 11am - 3pm
Phillips Brooks House, Parlor BURRITOS!

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
1 Peter 3:15

Questions matter - those we are asked by our friends and those that linger in our own hearts and minds. Understanding how to respond to questions is an essential part of following Jesus and loving our neighbor. Our workshop is intended to be practical and useful. Join us and bring a friend!

New Orleans Urban Plunge
Spring Break 2015
On August 29, 2005, the levees failed and most of the city of New Orleans was flooded. Over 1,500 people died and 100,000+ homes were destroyed - families, businesses, schools, congregations, lives were swept away. The disaster 9 years ago focused the eyes of the world on the profound and persistent problems faced by the poor in New Orleans.

This March we will be heading down to New Orleans again (our 7th time) to join other volunteers doing outreach, construction and work with youth. Besides just having a blast, if you give your spring break to help the people of New Orleans, you can help a community to rebuild, learn about the complex issues facing their recovery, and explore how to pursue justice and service in your own life. This week could change your life!

Dates:   March 15-21
Registration Deadline: February 13
Cost:   $350 plus plane fare
