God is changing hearts and lives in colleges across the country through InterVarsity
At InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, our vision is to see students and faculty transformed, campuses renewed and world changers developed.
Our campus staff ministers have a passion to minister to students on every corner of every campus. They are developing future world changers with Kingdom vision and Christ-like character through time-tested programs and Bible studies.
Teach students to respond
to God’s Word
Our mission is to renew the campus. We develop disciples and leaders who grow in love for God, God’s Word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture and God’s purposes in the world and we accomplish our mission in these ways:

“InterVarsity was the place where I learned to live for Jesus with abandonment. I learned that everything in my life belongs to Jesus, and I saw people modeling that in a way that I not only admired but I also learned from.”
“I knew I wanted to be a part of a Christian community but I didn’t know what InterVarsity was. [After joining] it was becoming a distraction from school because it was so much fun and way more exciting
Draw people to Jesus
as Savior and Lord
“I realized there was more to following Jesus than going to church. I was challenged to not just think about missions in a one-dimensional way, but to love the poor and people on the margins, and give my life to the mission of God.”
Engage people of all cultures
“God really used InterVarsity to challenge me and take my faith to the next level, and to show me how to do ministry in a secular environment. I think I ended up learning more than if I’d gone to a Bible school.”

A History of Changing the World One Heart at a Time
Our movement started at the University of Cambridge, England, in 1877. A group of Christian students began meeting together to pray, study the Bible, and reach out to their friends. Eventually, they formed the British Inter-Varsity. (Hence our name, ‘“inter,’” meaning “between," and ‘“varsity," the British term for college -level students.)
Here are a few milestones from our history:
Promoting Responsible Stewardship of God’s Gifts and Grace
For six consecutive years InterVarsity has been awarded 4 stars (in a 4-star rating system) by Charity Navigator, a nonprofit rating organization. This rating recognizes InterVarsity's strong fiscal management and is based on InterVarsity's program stability and low fundraising expenses.
"Only 4 percent of the charities we evaluate have received at least six consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA outperforms most other charities in America", said Michael Thatcher, President of Charity Navigator.
InterVarsity pledges financial accountability through out charter membership in the Evangelical Council for Financil Accountability (ECFA). The ECFA seal assures donors that their gifts will always be used appropriately for InterVarsity's ministry.
