Large Groups are our biweekly Friday night meetings, at 7:30 pm, where our whole chapter (hence the name "Large Group") comes together for worship, community, and learning. Meeting place is the Upper House, 365 E Campus Mall #200, Madison, WI. Be sure to sign up for the e-mail list by sending a quick e-mail message to so you can get all the latest updates.

Large Group is not church or just another lecture; it is a uniquely grad-student-focused event where we can learn and grow together. At this point in your life, you may find yourself asking, "What does it mean to be a Christian grad student? How does my faith impact my work? How can I exalt God through what I do and attract others to Him through my actions?" If so, then you're in good company! We look forward to seeing you! For more information, please contact the Community Life coordinators at

Large Groups are fun and insightful after a productive (i.e. long) week. We aim to provide a variety of discussion topics that are relevant to our lives as grad students. At times, we incorporate elements of student testimonies or corporate prayer. We love to have dinner together beforehand, sometimes by hosting potluck dinners, as well as enjoying a time of fellowship after the meeting, either through an "After Hours" activity or just through hanging out at the Large Group venue. We hope to see you there!
