IVGrad students gather at various spots across campus on weeknights. Some small groups will share a meal, and there will be time to pray for each other, along with Bible study or a group discussion about a book or topic. Find more info below! Small groups meet throughout the academic year and are open to new members to join in at any time. This week is a great time to visit!
Small Groups 2018-19
Get in touch with the listed leader to confirm the location and to join the small group mailing list. Small groups meet most weeks of the quarter, but not every week.
Flourishing in Grad School
Mondays (from 10/1), 6:00pm @ GCC Bogota Room
In this challenging place that is grad school, what does our faith look like? What does it mean to be a grad student and follow Jesus? We’ll explore some of these questions and more, particularly welcoming first years as we grow together in Spirit-led community.

International Bible Study
Thursdays (from 10/4), 6:00pm @ GCC Sydney Room
International Bible Study, or IBS (not to be confused with a medical condition affecting the gastrointestinal tract), is a long-running small group rooted in the idea that God’s people do, and indeed should, come from a broad and diverse range of backgrounds. Keeping in step with that spirit of commonality, IBS provides a consistent base for fellowship and Scriptural study alike. We begin each meeting with a time of food and fellowship (there will be snacks, but feel free to bring your own dinner this year!), before moving into a time of prayer, and then spending the bulk of each night in Bible study. For those of you not considered “international students,” fear not: we have concluded that America is, indeed, a nation. This Fall quarter will be a particularly exciting one, as we delve into Genesis, wrestling with the fascinating entry point into what is now the Bible. If you enjoy diverse community, thoughtful Bible study, or esoteric discussions on Kale salad, this is the small group for you!
