  • Being a maturing disciple of Jesus Christ: growing in love for God, God’s Word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture, and God’s purposes in the world
  • Working with students and faculty to build witnessing communities that are bolder, broader, and more ethnically diverse while embodying InterVarsity’s Four Commitments: Spiritual Formation, Community, Mission (Service & Evangelism), and Integration of Faith, Work, and Study.
  • Building partnerships and relationships across campus to facilitate opportunities for mission.
  • Taking initiative to pursue new ideas and possibilities on campus.
  • Developing leadership teams of students, empowering, equipping, and encouraging them to do the work of mission.
  • Helping Harvard graduate students integrate all aspects of their work under a Christian worldview, encouraging them to make choices that advance God’s Kingdom at Harvard and beyond.
  • Contributing to the efforts of the Boston and Harvard GFM teams and working well as part of a team beyond Harvard.
  • Carrying out effective fund development alongside comprehensive training
  • Aligning with InterVarsity’s Beliefs, Purpose, and Calling.
