First of all, congratulations on your admission to Tufts! We are so excited to meet you all!
Freshman year is a time of new and fast changes, and we are sure that there will be a lot on your plates: packing and unpacking, assignments and exams, and most of all the struggle of finding yourself in college. Non-denominational Christian Fellowship is a place to explore your questions and find your sense of meaning and purpose in college in a different way: through God’s eyes. At NCF, you can grow in your faith, build meaningful relationships and find your home away from home!
What is Non-denominational Christian Fellowship?
NCF is a community of believers committed to studying the Bible, exploring the life of Jesus Christ, and supporting one another in Christian living on campus. We are committed to pursuing faith by providing spiritual mentorship, building community together, and impacting those around us with the Gospel. We are open to all students and want to create a spiritual spiritual community that is welcoming and engaging.
NCF believes that the Holy Bible is uniquely God-breathed, trustworthy and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. We believe Jesus Christ to be the self-revelation of God, and that true life is found in Him.
Vision: We see a revival of the Gospel on campus and a community united through Godly sacrificial love.
Mission: To foster an open, devoted community and equip believers to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the Tufts campus.
Does God have a plan for me at Tufts?
God has more than a plan for you at Tufts…He has a plan for your life! At NCF we will explore together who God is and the great plans He has for our lives. We will learn what it means to fix our eyes on Jesus and to silence all the noise that college can bring us.
What can I do at NCF?
From Orientation throughout the rest of the year, there are a lot of opportunities to start your journey!
Join us for Large Group, where you can take a break from the business of classes and spend time in fellowship with God and fellow NCF members. We touch on subjects relevant to college students today and see how God is present in our lives.
You can get plugged in to a small group, where you can delve deeper into the Bible, grow in your personal relationship with God, and build close relationship s with others in your small group. Small groups are a great place to make new friends and learn more about putting faith into action.
Finally, there are many events that bring the whole community together, such as our Halloween and Christmas parties, Fall Fest, Thanksgiving Dinner, fall and winter retreats, worship and prayer nights, Brothers/Sisters Appreciation Night, movie and game nights, etc.
In addition, if you feel passionate about serving, whether that’s through leading Bible studies, being on worship team, community outreach, planning or hosting events, community service, and any new ideas you have, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved!
