Large groups are gatherings where our whole fellowship invites the Tufts campus to experience Jesus with us. Campus events take place regularly throughout the semester and typically include an ice breaker, a time of worship, a presentation on a topic relevant to the entire campus, and a fun After Fellowship Time Activity (AFTA).
Core brings together those who are interested in equipping each other to be a faithful witness to Jesus on campus. When Jesus called us to be the “Salt and Light” of the world in Matthew 5:13-16, he called us to be a witnessing community, bringing healing to those around us and adding some flavor to the world. At Core meetings, we explore what this means both theoretically and practically. We meet weekly on non-Large Group Thursday nights.
Connect Groups are groups where anyone on campus can explore what it means to live a life following Jesus and his teachings. Connect groups are meant to be places where students come to connect with God and with each other. Whether you have never thought about faith before or have been following Jesus for a long time, we invite you to join us. Connect Groups meet weekly to dig into the Bible, ask the hard questions and encourage one another to live out what we discover.

Accountability & Activities
Men’s Accountability Networks (MAN) are places where men come together in order to encourage one another to live God-centered and integrity-filled lives. By sharing our experiences with vulnerability, we lift each other up to focus on God’s will in our lives. Our small groups of 3-5 meet once a week at a time most suitable for the group.
Spiritual Women’s Accountability Groups (SWAG) are small groups of 3-5 women that meet weekly to share life together (the good and the bad), to pray and hold one another accountable in our walk with God (in spiritual formation and mission).
