Focused on Flourishing

Gordon Govier
August 1, 2014

Flourishing in Grad School is the title of a Bible study curriculum by Scott Filkin, InterVarsity’s area director for Graduate and Faculty Ministries (GFM) in the Rocky Mountains and Northwest. It’s also the hope that Scott has for every graduate student—because he knows just how hard it is to be one.

The Isolation Experience

Grad students are always busy, zeroing in on the specialized field about which they need to become an expert. But they are also often isolated by their intensive studies.

Fighting Cynicism in Hollywood

Katie Ziegler

Los Angeles is not for the faint of heart. Anyone who has lived there, even briefly, senses the cynicism that fuels the culture. But for some, like InterVarsity alumnus Nathan Scoggins, pursuing a career as a filmmaker in the City of Angels is not only a choice but a calling. Nate and his wife, Kate, are intentionally creating a life that is not defined by chasing an often-elusive success but rather by serving and loving people well.

Living a Full Life

After just a few minutes of conversation with Nate, you get the sense that his life is fully integrated. No one part of his life is excluded from any other part. His faith, his family, his career—they all commingle in a beautiful tangle. His faith informs his filmmaking. As does his family.

Ready and Equipped to Share the Gospel

My favorite annual InterVarsity event is Orientation of New Staff. For nine days in late June, we host new campus staff in Madison. This year, 128 eager and committed newcomers were welcomed into our community.  

Over the past five years, 644 men and women—a simply remarkable number—have joined staff. During that period, the total of overall staff has grown from about 1200 to more than 1600.

And there’s more good news. The number of new believers has increased 57% since 2009 and, for the first time in our history, more than 40,000 “core” students and faculty are involved in our chapters. “Core” is defined as 50%+ participation. Easily three times that number—or 120,000—are being significantly impacted.
