“The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.”

- Matthew 13:33 (NRSV)


The Yeast of the Kingdom 


Witnessing communities of graduate students and faculty are like the yeast of the kingdom on campus.  Small measures can have the potential to effect the whole "loaf" (i.e., the university).

This is our mission. We call every corner of every campus to follow Jesus as whole life disciples who are seeking to make him known in and through the ideas and structures of the university and its professions.  

Here are some of the ways Jesus has been kneading fresh kingdom yeast into the university this semester. 
 
GCF (Graduate Christian Fellowship) has been gathering weekly to pray for the university, hear from God in our corporate study of scripture, and be sent out as ambassadors of the kingdom on campus. 
We had a special student leader dinner with Philosopher James K.A. Smith who facilitated a conversation on what it looks like to be a kingdom community who are shaped by and are pointing to Jesus on campus.
GCF helped organize a campus-wide event with Dr. James K.A. Smith who gave an address and took questions on the topic, You Are What You Love. About 150 people attended. 
 
Healthcare students and professionals have continued to gather weekly and monthly in small groups and in dinner discussions to explore the intersection of faith and healthcare.
Thank you for your partnership in the gospel! Your prayers, advocacy, and financial support is making it possible for graduate students and faculty to have a leavening influence on colleges and universities across WNY.

Please pray for,
Grace and Peace,
