It’s that time of year when many people are moving from campus to campus, starting new endeavors, and trying to find community in new places. If you’re in transition now and looking for a Christian fellowship where you’ll be moving, check out InterVarsity’s handy Chapters page, where you can search the whole United States for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA fellowships, including graduate and faculty chapters.
If you’re looking for a fellowship outside the United States, the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) is the international movement that InterVarsity USA is part of, and you may be able to connect with a local fellowship by contacting IFES.
Even if you haven’t arrived in your new location yet, it’s worth getting in touch with a Christian fellowship ahead of time. You may find that local Christian fellowships are willing to help with practical questions like where to live and how to find roommates, and many groups have fall kickoff activities they’d love to welcome you to in advance. For some of the Emerging Scholars Network’s resources on transitions visit Advice for Entering Graduate School, Graduate School Survival Kit, Graduate School Journey, posts tagged transition, and posts tagged transitions (including a recent series by Christian Brady and another by Scott Santibanez).
Praying God’s blessing upon all our readers and the next steps they are taking this summer/fall. God is present with you each step of the way.
To God be the glory!
