DC Churches

For the month of September, meet in front of the Kogan Clocktower at 9:00 am Sundays to hear about local churches and find GW students to attend church with. We believe being planted in a local church is crucial to your spiritual growth, and encourage you to check out these, and other, D.C. churches.

InterVarsity is a parachurch organization. This means that we do not have a church organization over us. We are a university chapter of the national InterVarsity. We work outside of and across denominations to engage in social welfare and evangelism, usually independent of a church. That being said, we are not a church – we are a mission.

While our vision is to build a faithful and witnessing community of disciples of Jesus at GW, we believe that is most fully accomplished by pointing those we come into contact with both to Jesus and to a local church.

For more information about the churches listed below, you can visit their listed website, or email us at gw.ivcf@gmail.com.
