Week of April 15
InterVarsity’s Board of Trustees made the difficult decision to relinquish ownership of our three Retreat and Training Centers—Cedar Campus in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Toah Nipi in New Hampshire, and Campus by the Sea on Catalina Island off the coast of California—to broaden opportunities for all students to experience off-campus discipleship. Details are posted in this Q&A document. Pray for God to provide new partners to take over operation of each of these three facilities.
Students involved with InterVarsity and Cru on the campus of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, held a joint prayer meeting to pray for unreached people and parts of the campus and for revival at Case Western. Pray that God will lead more to plan meetings like this, to bring revival to colleges across the country as students from different Christian ministries, encouraged by our Every Campus Campaign, gather together to pray.
Millions of Christ-followers focus on this most significant week in the Christian faith. Maundy Thursday commemorates the mandate that Jesus gives to His disciples to love one another as He has loved them, Jesus taking up the basin and towel to wash His disciples’ feet, and the Last Supper. Good Friday commemorates the day on which Jesus was betrayed, crucified, died, and was buried. The somberness and sorrow of these days is eclipsed by the joy of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Praise God!
