Loving God with your mind

In college, I spent countless hours studying: polishing essays, working through complex derivations, learning new vocabulary. In the busyness, I was often drawn back to the greatest commandment: “Honor the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.”

Andy Wong remembers his first InterVarsity Chapter Camp. He was part of a newly affiliated Asian American chapter at the University of Texas at Austin.

And it was at Chapter Camp that for the first time, he had a sense of being Christian on campus as part of a national movement. “It was kind of eye-opening,” he said.  And, also for the first time, he received leadership training. “I walked away from that experience feeling equipped to lead a small group, and it felt good.”

From that point on, he was involved in a fellowship with a sense of purpose. “That challenged us to consider what being a missional presence looked like,” he said. “It changed the course of some of the things we were engaged with.”

The Chicago Public Schools’ February decision to make computer science a graduation requirement is a victory for a group of visionary teachers that includes University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) professor and InterVarsity alumnus Dale Reed. Dale has a history of helping to launch new initiatives. He helped start one of InterVarsity’s first Graduate & Faculty Ministries chapters at Northwestern University.

After growing up in a missionary family in Ecuador, and getting an undergraduate degree, Dale arrived at Northwestern in 1985 ready to begin graduate studies and find fellowship with other Christian students. InterVarsity was the second campus ministry he tried, and InterVarsity’s undergrad group was still not the best fit.

Anticipating God’s Miracles on Campus

April 6, 2016

Julie Longacre was the only Marietta College InterVarsity student to attend Urbana 93, InterVarsity's triennial student missions conference. She thought that God might be calling her to ministry overseas but she was hesitant. That is, until she introduced herself to the women in her small group at Urbana, and discovered that every one of them was from the same country she had been praying about in East Asia.
