Are you a grad student looking for some Christian fellowship?  Perhaps a grad student questioning God and faith issues?    InterVarsity Christian Fellowship has begun a fellowship of grad students on the USM campus. I, Allison VanderLinden, facilitate the ministry. I'm on campus weekly, and I'd be pleased to meet with you at your convenience!

I grew up in Darien, CT,  and attended Wheaton College in Norton, MA and Princeton Theological Seminary for my MDiv. Degree. After several years of pastoring churches, I have changed career paths.  Now I am hoping to gather USM grad students of diverse disciplines for Christian fellowship and learning.  IVCF encourages students from multi-ethnic backgrounds to get to know God through Jesus Christ and encourage each other on his/her own spiritual journey. We are committed to spiritual formation and mutual accountability within each graduate discipline.  We seek opportunities to fellowship and study the Bible together.  We are a welcoming place for Christians and seekers alike.
