What is InterVarsity all About?
Our Mission: Advancing the Kingdom Through Whole-Life Conversion to Jesus.
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA is a vibrant campus ministry that establishes and advances witnessing communities of students and faculty. We minister to students and faculty through small group Bible studies, large gatherings on campus, leadership training, thoughtful discipleship and life-changing conferences and events.Today’s university shapes tomorrow’s leaders. In the university, women and men are encouraged to pursue truth, often without regard for God, and to pursue personal goals, often without concern for a higher purpose.
InterVarsity longs to see education lead to a lifetime of Christian worship and service. We believe that when students and faculty are transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ, their campus is transformed, and ultimately society as a whole comes to more closely reflect the priorities of the kingdom of God. That is why we invest ourselves in the lives of students and faculty, wherever they are on their spiritual journey.
We long to see this transformation take place in Vermont, through each campus in this beautiful state. Vermont is the second "least-churched" state in the US; that means that there is a huge amount of people and places to reach with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Currently, InterVarsity chapters have been planted on seven college campuses (The University of Vermont, Middlebury College, Johnson State College, Lyndon State College, Castleton University, Green Mountain College, and Champlain College). As exciting as that is, there are still many more schools that have yet to be reached! Our hope is to reach every corner of every campus!
