Asian Baptist Student Koinonia (ABSK)
ABSK is a fellowship of students who are committed to God and to each other. We believe that fellowship within the body of Christ is essential to living out a Biblical faith. Even as we strive to glorify God through our studies here at MIT, we want to grow spiritually through studying the Word of God and and edifying each other. You are invited to join our Friday Bible studies and other activities. Don't let our name fool you - you don't have to be Asian or Baptist, as long as you're looking for Koinonia (Christian fellowship)!

Cru is a culturally diverse community of students who love one another and enjoy being together. We are explorers - people trying to figure out life, God, faith, purpose. Many of us are followers of Jesus, but some of us are seekers and skeptics who enjoy the community and wrestling with the big questions of life. Wherever you are at with God know that you are welcome here.
Our hope is that every student at MIT would have the chance to hear and experience the good news of Jesus Christ.
We want to be a community where people can DISCOVER Jesus - bring your questions, bring your doubts, find out what it means to follow Jesus.
We want to be a community where people can GROW in their faith - learn from the Bible, become the kind of people God wants us to be, pray together, overcome hurts and struggles and sin in our life, develop as a leader, learn to love and serve others better.
We want to be a community of people who GO - we want to take action with our faith and not be complacent. We look to go into the world to bring the hope of Jesus, to make a difference, to be reconcilers, to be life-givers, help others discover Jesus and grow in their faith.
Meets: Large Group Tuesday 8:00pm, usually in the Mezzanine Lounge (Student Center 3rd floor)

Cross Products, the most "normal" a cappella group at MIT, is MIT's only Christian a cappella group! (Co-ed) We exist to glorify God through music and our lives, and to tell others about the ways that He has changed us. We are each products of the cross of Jesus Christ!
Part of our vision is to reflect God's heart for all people. On spring break every year, we travel to a different part of the country and sing at schools, churches, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and the like. In the MIT and Boston areas, you might find us singing with groups from other colleges, caroling in Lobby 7, or rocking out at our big semester concert!

The MIT Gospel Choir exists to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through song. We hold free concerts at MIT at the end of each term and also sing at other events and churches during the semester. We consider ourselves a close-knit, fun-loving, and unique family, one that looks out for each member’s spiritual and general well-being. We are excited for the upcoming school year, and the possibilities that God has in store for our group.

MIT Intervarsity (MIT-IV)
Have you ever wondered what difference prayer makes? Ever thought about the many styles people have of praising God? Ever questioned where God is in a world so full of injustice and suffering?
As you juggle friends, classes, activities, UROPs, job-hunts and all that life throws at you, MIT-IV invites you to take time out of your busy schedule to recharge, focus on God, or explore these and other questions. MIT-IV is InterVarsity’s multi-ethnic, interdenominational chapter, which seeks deeper community and a better understanding of God's heart and word at MIT. We meet weekly for Bible study, worship,prayer, fellowship and other campus activities. Multiple times a year we also leave campus for retreats that give us a chance to relax and spend more time hanging out with each other and with God, or for service projects around the city to care for those beyond the campus. Come join us as we learn to grow in community with one another, learn more about God and see what transformations are possible for our world! Whether you've been reading the Bible since you were a kid, or you've just been intrigued to pick one up for the first time, we'd love to have you join us!
Meets: Fridays at 7:30pm

Reformed University Fellowship (RUF)
RUF is a community of people who want to learn more about Jesus. We seek to engage honestly, openly, and respectfully with the Christian Scriptures and its message of God’s grace which says that you’re never so bad that you’re beyond the reach of God’s grace and never so good that you’re beyond the need of God’s grace. Whether you’re a committed Christian desiring to grow in your faith or you’re exploring the claims of Christianity, RUF welcomes you to ‘come as you are’ to any of our gatherings.
Meets: Wednesdays at 8pm
Sloan Christian Fellowship (SCF)
SCF is an inter-denominational Christian community of students at MIT Sloan. We are committed to provide opportunities for fostering fellowship, discussing the application of faith to business and exploring questions of faith. We believe that the Gospel of Christ is relevant not only for things explicitly spiritual, but for every area of life. This includes dealing with issues such as career choice, professional development, decision making, business relationships, and stewardship of resources. We seek to assist all students, regardless of background or belief, to understand the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and to know what it means to follow Him today.
Tech Catholic Community (TCC)
The Tech Catholic Community at MIT is part of an international community of Christians in the Roman Catholic tradition; it is in this context we celebrate the Eucharist, pray and discuss Scripture, and share discussions and fellowship together each week. We also participate in service projects, retreats, activities with Catholic communities at other colleges, and various other off-campus trips/activities. Anyone, including those seeking God, is invited to join us at any of our events!
