Adopt a Duke Lutheran - Student Application
Hey Duke Lutherans!
Interested in taking part in “Adopt a Duke Lutheran," where you’ll be matched with a family from one of our supporting congregations, St. Paul’s or Grace, during the 2019-2020 academic year? Open to undergraduates and graduates alike, this is a great opportunity to find a home away from home, form meaningful relationships with people of different ages, and take part in the wider Durham community. When you are matched with a family, you are encouraged to share life together with them, both in and out of church. This is intended to be a fun, flexible program - you dictate when and how you get together with your family! If you're interested, please complete this application by October 15. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Anya at
Please note: Completing this form does not guarantee you will be matched with a family this academic year. Pairs will be made within the week following the submission deadline.
"Adopted" pairs will be made within the week following the submission deadline. Pairs will be invited to a meet-and-greet at 7 pm at Grace House on Oct 30.
