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.

Christian Community - Singing,
Prayer, Teaching and Food
Friday, Oct 14, 8 pm
The Parlor
Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard
Though this is the second Friday of the month - we usually gather on the First-Friday to honor God with worship, prayer and teaching from the Bible. If you’re new to this community, this is great way to get connected. If you’re curious but cautious - or even skeptical - we hope you’ll come and visit. Everyone is welcome and we frequently head out afterward for food and refreshments in the Square. Worship begins at 8 pm. Write Jeff Barneson for more information.

Soul & Mind
Saturdays, 11 am (Starts 9/24)
Parlor, First Floor
Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard

The Society for the Two Tasks (S2T) was founded in 2004 and meets each Saturday during the school year in Harvard Yard in the Philips Brooks House. The name of the group comes from a speech given by Charles Malik in 1980 at Wheaton College, where he argued that the church had two tasks set before it, saving the soul and saving the mind, and that it had largely failed in the latter. This group strives to address the task of saving the mind by engaging in study and discussion of a wide variety of topics relating to Scripture, apologetics, historic theology, world religions, secular critiques of Christianity, and the claims of Jesus. Our meetings are open to everyone. Write to Finny Kuruvilla for updates on the weekly question or to be added to the email list.

Mon-Fri, 8 am
Bettens Room, Third Floor
Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard
Each morning we gather to pray that Harvard University - students, faculty and staff - will flourish by God’s grace. We pray that we might be agents of blessing and that God would shape each of us for the ministry of reconciliation to which we are called. Join us! We are meeting this fall in Phillps Brooks House in the NW corner of Harvard Yard. Keep up at the Facebook Group, or write to Pete Williamson for more information.
