Jim Lundgren, InterVarsity’s interim president, is pleased to announce that Alec Hill returned to work on February 1st in a new role — president emeritus. The return comes fifteen years to the day since Alec was first announced as president in 2001.

Alec announced his decision to leave office last May in order to begin cancer treatments in Seattle. He received a successful bone marrow transplant from his brother on August 15, 2015.

“Alec’s recovery process will allow him to work by email, phone, and video conference,” Jim announced. “Due to risk of infection, his doctors recommend no travel and limited face-to-face contact until this fall. We celebrate God’s goodness in Alec’s healing process and welcome Alec back to work.”

As president emeritus, Alec’s responsibilities will include:

The goodness of Lent

Connecting Christians on Campus

Texas appears dry and dusty. But Leon Fillyaw has found Texas to be fruitful for chapter planting twice in the past. In his current job he hopes to plant more chapters in and around Texas.

Twenty years ago Leon drove his 1966 Mustang from North Carolina State University in Raleigh to Texas Tech in Lubbock. He’d worked as a volunteer staff member with InterVarsity for a year at NC State, and was about to give up on campus ministry. But a friend on staff told him that the Texas Tech chapter needed replanting and some of the faculty had raised enough money to support a campus staff member for one year.

“It felt pretty risky to drive out to Texas,” he said. He knew no one there. His experience at NC State had not convinced him he could cut it in campus ministry. But as a volunteer, and before that as a chapter leader and during a summer mission trip, he had experienced the fulfillment of taking risks for ministry. He was ready to take another risk.

InterVarsity’s faculty conferences provide enrichment for faculty and other university scholars and their spouses.
