FAQ

Below are some frequently asked questions (FAQ) we receive about G Phi D, membership into the fraternity, and other related topics.

Why is Gamma Phi Delta a Christian Fraternity?

Does Gamma Phi Delta do more than host bible studies?

How much time is required?

Chapter members typically attend monthly meetings and participate in committee assignments. Beyond these obligations the time commitment that one chooses to invest in the organization is at their own discretion. The majority of members enjoy the comradeship and they are eager to participate in chapter functions, fellowship with the brotherhood and become officers and accept committee assignments. Even after earning a bachelor's degree, members have multiple opportunities to serve and give back to the fraternity. Clearly, members will get out the fraternal association as much as they invest. What you put into Gamma Phi Delta Christian Fraternity, Inc. is what you will get out of it.
