Believers Who Share Our Love for Campus

At the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, when California State University InterVarsity chapters were derecognized, students on the Sacramento State campus needed a new meeting place since they no longer had the status needed to formally reserve a room for their large group meetings. An out-of-the-way alcove on the second floor of the University Union was discovered, where they could meet informally.

Audrey Chan, InterVarsity’s Team Leader at Sacramento State, said that arrangement worked well for a couple of weeks. Then the director of the union contacted the chapter leaders and invited them to his office. Concerned about the future of their chapter’s activities, the chapter leaders called for prayer and fasting.

March is spring break month for many college students, which often means a week of warm weather vacation or maybe a service project. For Victoria Meija’s InterVarsity students at California State University, Sacramento (Sac State), it means Mark Manuscript Study.

When Victoria became a Campus Staff Member at Sac State nine years ago, students spent six to seven weeks poring over the Gospel of Mark for several hours on Sunday evenings. Despite the insights gained through InterVarsity’s in-depth Bible study methods, some of the students didn’t seem very interested. Victoria was amazed. “When I found out that some people didn’t like Mark Study I thought, ‘That’s crazy; that’s the best thing we do.’”
