Inside Radical Faith

Amy Hauptman
January 21, 2014

When your dad starts an underground church movement in your home country, it’s going to affect you.

Growing up overseas as an only child, Jeremy Lee witnessed his parents living out radical and sacrificial Christian faith in their home and in their workplaces. His dad started a Bible study at his workplace even though it was dangerous in their country to do so.  As more people joined and got involved in the Bible study, it eventually grew into an underground church movement.

“My family’s values were based around hospitality and servanthood,” said Jeremy. “My mom and dad were very comfortable opening our home to missionaries or friends—they believe that God’s blessings should not be taken for granted, but be utilized to serve others.”

When Jeremy was eight years old he dedicated his life to following Christ. But his faith was very “surface-level.”

Making Space for God’s Renewal

The relationship between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit—the Trinity—is a mystery that most of us will never come close to fully understanding. But the Trinity does show us something very clearly—community is at the center of the universe.

InterVarsity alumnus Michael Tso has been captivated by the mystery and beauty of the Trinity, “not so much as a doctrine, but as a way of living in community.” In a variety of places, times, and careers, Michael has placed true community—messy and difficult yet crucial—at the center of his life, and seen the ways it has transformed his life and the lives of those around him.

Focusing on our Campus Mission

Gordon Govier

More than 1400 staff members from across the country gathered January 7-11, 2014 in St. Louis for our triennial National Staff Conference. The focus of the conference was on InterVarsity world changers, taken from InterVarsity’s Vision Statement: “To see students and faculty transformed, campuses renewed, and world changers developed.”

As attested by numerous stories on our website, students and faculty whose faith in Jesus Christ is planted and nurtured through the ministry of InterVarsity are called to change the world, and they respond. World changer stories were shared by video and by personal testimony, and are posted online by InterVarsity's Twentyonehundred Productions.
