Graduate school often is isolating and lonely. When you connect with other grad students who are facing many of the same challenges academically and in life, you are in an environment for being built up and strengthened in your life and faith. By choosing to get involved with GradCRU, you are choosing to fight isolation and loneliness and make your faith in Christ a priority in your life.
It’s been said,”If our priorities shape our practice, then our practice will reveal our priorities. If our practice does not include such elements as an ongoing renewal of the mind through consistent time in Scripture, a commitment to cultivating growing intimacy with God through prayer, and a sensitivity to the opportunities the Lord gives us to love and serve believers and seekers in our arena of influence [in the midst of the university], then our priorities are not in alignment with those of Scripture.” (Ken Boa, Conformed to His Image, 2001)
GradCRU can help you in each of these ways.
