Rev. Doug Schaupp serves as the National Director of Evangelism for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA.
He became a follower of Jesus at Occidental College at the end of his freshman year in 1986. A group of InterVarsity students made a safe place for one crazy freshman to explore Jesus- and he's forever grateful for them. After graduating, he worked at UCLA for 10 years, learned how to contextualize the Gospel, tried a million crazy things and most of them failed. Since then, he's served as the Los Angeles Divisional Director and as the Regional Director for Southern California.
A writer and teacher, he focuses on the alignment of the gospel and racial reconciliation, postmodern evangelism, and leadership development. He and his wife have served in both Korean-American, and African-American church contexts. He is based in Los Angeles and graduated from Fuller Seminary. He is a coauthor of Being White, I Once Was Lost, and Breaking the Huddle. Breaking the Huddle is Outreach Magazine's "outreach resource of the year" (2018).
He is a father of three, and has coached all of their soccer teams. Doug's personal goal is to play ultimate-frisbee 3 times a week.

In times of crisis, many questions are being asked about how God interacts with the COVID-19 pandemic. How can we still reach people? Can we still do justice? In the 5th Rhythm of Online ministry, we answer those questions.
“Faking It” is a three-part series of online large groups to help students start the year inspired by a vision for authentic Christian community, empowered to pray for their non-Christian friends, and an opportunity for all to respond to Jesus in new faith.
Are you trying to create an online outreach event? Ignite is a tool that walks you through sparking a conversation, fanning the flame through fun and honesty and keeping the fire going by helping your spiritually open friends seek Jesus.
God wants to use our winsome invitations to offer far more people on campus a compelling reason to check out Jesus and transform them forever. Let’s imitate Jesus with his life-changing invitation in John 1 with his epic “come and see.”
We all want to create authentic community online this fall. The first 5 minutes of a zoom call sets the tone for the entire meeting. Starting meetings with Inside Scoop can bring some energy and help people open up to one another.
These bible studies were developed to help Christians and non-Christians explore Jesus and grow in faith together. Each study has artistic interpretations of each passage, as well as simple discussion questions, challenging application questions, and a built-in call to faith at the end of the series.
