About us

We began at the Johns Hopkins Medical campus in 2001 as a team of Johns Hopkins faculty, students and staff along with staff affiliated with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Since that time, scholars from many backgrounds and traditions have joined in our events and activities.

As an international community of students, scholars, trainees, faculty and staff meeting at the Johns Hopkins Medical campus, we warmly welcome people of all cultural and faith backgrounds.

We gather weekly on Friday evenings.  Following dinner we join in small groups for Bible reading and discussion.

People representing various faith traditions, including many who are reading the Bible for the first time, often join us. Through the fall we explore foundational stories of the Old Testament.  After Thanksgiving we read through the Christmas stories. In the late winter and early spring seasons we look at the life of Jesus including Easter holiday stories. We continue with stories that Jesus told (parables) and life-changing encounters people experienced with Jesus through the late spring and summer months.  

We also gather monthly for various activities including: hiking, and touring historical sites and to celebrate American and other ethnic holidays.
