Student Ministries Director


To advance the purpose of InterVarsity, this position will lead and direct the student ministry of Nurses Christian Fellowship as NCF seeks to equip nursing students, nursing faculty, NCF professional members (nurses), and InterVarsity staff to plant and build witnessing communities of nursing students and faculty on campus.

Through the 2030 Calling, God has called InterVarsity to plant and to build 2500 witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus on college and university campuses by the year 2030. Through these groups, we believe ever-increasing numbers of students and faculty from all ethnic groups and areas of the campus will be transformed by the Gospel. We expect to see campuses increasingly become places where people, ideas, and structures flourish to the glory of God. We confidently anticipate that our InterVarsity alumni will become change agents across the country and around the world. We pursue this calling by discerning and actively participating in what God is already doing on campus.

  • Create, develop, align and leverage ministry plans, programs, teams, and structures to reach goals.

  • Work with a network of local, area, regional, and national InterVarsity staff and volunteers in a manner that reflects biblical standards of excellence, integrity, and partnership. 
  • Help NCF develop a team of partners – churches and individuals (including alumni, NCF professional members, and community members) – who will resource the ministry financially, in prayer, or volunteer service that advances the mission.
