(Madison, WI) -- InterVarsity’s 23 chapters on 19 of the California State University (CSU) campuses will once again be recognized student groups, according to CSU and InterVarsity.  InterVarsity chapters were not recognized at CSU campuses for the 2014-2015 academic year.

InterVarsity Board Appoints Interim President

June 8, 2015

For Immediate Release

(Madison, WI) --- Jim Lundgren, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s senior vice president and director of Collegiate Ministries, has been appointed interim president by InterVarsity’s Board of Trustees.

“Jim is a gift to InterVarsity during this season. After 42 years on staff with InterVarsity, Jim is still passionate about our mission to students and faculty. His knowledge of campus ministry at every level of InterVarsity, his deep care for those he leads, and his experience in senior leadership have prepared him well for this new role,” said InterVarsity Board Chair Ron Williams.

He succeeds Alec Hill, who is stepping down from leadership following a diagnosis of bone marrow cancer.

Not Ready to Retire, and Back on Staff

George Stulac’s career plan was to get a PhD in history and become a professor. Instead God called him into student ministry with InterVarsity and then pastoral ministry. He pastored Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Louis for 33 years. Now, after stepping down from the pulpit and still eager to be involved in the work of the gospel, God has called George to a new ministry in which he’ll be working closely with history professors and other faculty.

Last summer, as George reached retirement age and ended his time at Memorial Church, he gave prayerful consideration of what he wanted to do next. He was not ready to retire from ministry.

“I wanted these last years to count for the most fruitful ministry that I could do,” he said. “So I spent that time asking questions about what my gifts are, what I do best in ministry, what motivates me, what satisfies me, what would I be most fruitful in doing?”
