Developing the leadership of students & new IV staff for the future of ministry in InterVarsity, the church and the marketplace.
For decades InterVarsity at the U of I has been on the cutting edge of campus ministry, increasing the effectiveness of our native evangelism strategy--Christian students leading Bible study with non-Christians, taking the quality of training and support for Small Group Leaders from good to great, and honing our training curriculum and coaching of students who are leaders of leaders.
With an increasingly post-Christian student generation, we are needing to adapt current ministry strategies and also learn new strategies to disciple students who will be resilient and faithful exiles in this world.
One of the limiting factors is the time staff need to spend off campus fundraising. Your investment in our work helps keep us focused on campus and on students.
