Looking back now, Liz and Jesse North see one glaring omission at the beginning of their marriage. “Our whole married lives have been about ministry with InterVarsity but there was nobody from InterVarsity at our wedding,” Liz said.

Married just four months before leaving Pennsylvania for Orientation of New Staff (ONS) in Wisconsin, Liz and Jesse hardly knew any InterVarsity students or staff. They had met at Shippensburg University, which does not have an InterVarsity chapter.

What Shippensburg University did have was an independent Christian fellowship that used InterVarsity chapter camp for leadership development. Liz attended chapter camp for three out of her four years at Shippensburg. “It was at camp where I really fell in love with Scripture for the first time,” she said.

Experiencing God Through Community

“Often, following Jesus can be very discouraging, especially in an atmosphere such as college,” said Isaac Redinger. “During my freshman year, I often felt ostracized because I didn’t want to take part in the unhealthy lifestyles that were around me in the dorms.”

Before coming to college, Isaac had grown up in a Christian family, where his parents encouraged his spiritual growth. Isaac remembers beginning a personal relationship with Jesus when he was very young. He and his family attended church in Madison, Wisconsin, and his family took trips to Inter-Varsity Canada’s Ontario Pioneer Camp every summer.
