InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA
About Us: We believe that God has called us to reach every corner of every campus. Change the university, change the world. For over 75 years InterVarsity has had a vital presence on hundreds of college campuses, courageously proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior, engaging in discipleship around Scripture, and loving people of every ethnicity and culture.
This is a mission for college level students and not a sports-related mission:
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA dates our official beginning to our incorporation, which took place on November 14, 1941. But the roots of our movement are with students at the University of Cambridge, England in 1877. There, a group of Christian students began to meet together, in spite of the disapproval of some University officials, to pray, to study the Bible and to witness to fellow students. Soon, similar groups sprang up on other campuses. Eventually, they formed the British Inter-Varsity. (Hence our name, inter – meaning between, varsity – the British term for college level students.)
