2020 Winter Retreat

GCF Winter Retreat

Registration for 2020 Winter Retreat opens later this fall!

Join us for the Grad Christian Fellowship Winter Retreat January 17-18, 2020, in Cedar Lake, IN. Together, we’ll focus on how we can connect with God’s mission on campus with students from Chicago area schools, the University of Illinois, Purdue, and others. This year’s speaker is Greg Jao. He has his BA in English from the U of Chicago and his JD from Northwestern University Law School.  Greg is a Senior Assistant to the IVCF President and Director of External Relations and now lives in Chicago.  

Whether you’ve been following Jesus for a while, are new to the journey, or even still pondering your faith, we welcome you! At the retreat, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn how you can be a peacemaker, following Jesus’ example, on your campus and in your department.
  • Connect with God through personal reflection.
  • Discuss questions about faith, peacemaking, and academics with students in your discipline or academic field.
  • Engage in conversations and fun (outside of an academic setting!) with other graduate students.

Our hope is that you will be refreshed, encouraged, and equipped with ways that you can be a peacemaker who follows Jesus’ example.
