July 2017

During the month of July, please join the InterVarsity community in prayer for the following:

  • Pray for InterVarsity staff participating in our National Institute for Staff Education and Training (NISET), July 1-8 in Madison, Wisconsin, which provides graduate-level programming—everything from theology to chapter planting to a writing workshop and more.
  • On July 2, InterVarsity’s Blue Ridge Faculty Conference comes to an end in Brevard, North Carolina.  Pray that faculty members and their families will return to their campuses refreshed after a week of fellowship and encouraged by keynote speaker, InterVarsity trustee Dr. John Inazu, speaking about his new book, Confident Pluralism.  
  • Thank God for InterVarsity students who are part of summer internships—a new venture through our Global Programs—with companies in Romania, India, and Cambodia. Pray that each student will learn about and invest in the company mission, deepen their cross-cultural skills, and be influencers for Christ.
  • Megan and Will Krischke, InterVarsity staff ministers in Colorado, are serving Native American students.  Megan, National Coordinator of InterVarsity’s Native Ministries, shared, “The Maker of All Things, and his son, Creator Sets Free, are on the move to bring love and hope to the Native people of our lands. Won't you praise the Lord with me for allowing InterVarsity to partner with him in this work of renewal!”
  • InterVarsity’s 2100 Productions multimedia team has produced the Beyond Colorblind Proxe Station, an evangelistic interactive art display that helps students have conversations about faith and ethnicity. Also, 2100 created a spoken word video, an artistic re-telling of Jesus andthe Samaritan woman at the well from John 4. These tools are specially designed for New Student Outreach in the fall on campuses across the nation. Ask God to use Beyond Colorblind and the John 4 video to open the hearts of students to faith in Christ.
  • Beginning July 30, faculty members and their families will meet for theWest Coast Faculty Conferenceon the campus of Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. Pray that the Bible studies, keynote speakers, and other programming will bring refreshment to each participant.
  • During the summer months, many staff focus on expanding their team of ministry partners. Pray that God will guide them to new, fruitful relationships. And ask God for wisdom and guidance for InterVarsity’s Ministry Partnership Development Team as they look for new ways to help connect our staff with God’s financial provision for their campus ministries.
  • Pray for InterVarsity students and staff serving overseas through our summer Global Programsand Global Urban Treks, that God will be at work transforming their spiritual lives as well as those they serve and minister alongside.
