The problem with holiness

St. Augustine famously prayed, “Lord, grant me holiness, but not yet.” (Domine, da mihi sanctitiam, sed noli modo.) We may relate to his prayer. 


The Culture of Chapter Planting

What would happen if the creativity, vision, energy and passion of this generation was unleashed to reach the University?  

In 2012, InterVarsity held the first Ambition conference to inspire both staff and students by hearing from some of the world's leading thinkers on planting ministries, such as Alan Hirsch, a leader in the missional church community.  "It was a powerful catalyst for our movement" said Shawn Young, who serves as National Director of Chapter Planting.  "I'm still hearing from staff and students who tell me Ambition is where they were inspired to plant a new chapter, reach a new network on campus, join InterVarsity staff or some other ministry." 

Ambition Conference 2015 will be held in Tampa, Florida, January 15-18, 2015. InterVarsity staff, students, and faculty will gather to learn new perspectives and new innovations in chapter planting.

InterVarsity Campus Staff Member Alee George met Sun Kist and Paw Bway Htoo, two University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO) students, when she volunteered to help at the World Refugee Day celebration in Omaha in June. Sun Kist and Paw Bway Htoo are Karen refugees. Their families came to the U.S. after suffering persecution in Burma.

Alee noticed that her two new friends knew many of the members of the Thrive Club, a leadership club for refugee students in the Omaha public schools. And she realized that many of the Thrive Club members would soon be freshmen at UNO, beginning a wave of new Karen students.

Becoming Courageous at Fresno State

Before Santa Hernandez had ever stepped foot on her college campus, she already knew that she wanted to get involved with InterVarsity. She even knew what manuscript Bible study was!

“During my senior year of high school, my friend Timmy would meet up with me to see how I was doing as the new Christian club leader,” said Santa. “One day, we met up to get coffee and then he started talking about the manuscript Bible study that InterVarsity would do.”

When Timmy actually led Santa through a manuscript study, she loved it—especially the way that the method helped her go deeper into the Bible.

Finding InterVarsity

After Santa graduated from high school and started college at California State University, Fresno, one of the first things she did was find InterVarsity’s table during New Student Outreach.
