Greek Conference in the Times

The New York Times sent a reporter to InterVarsity’s Greek Conference and the story was reported in today’s edition of the newspaper. The story is here and more photos are here.


Here’s the rest of the story from Greek Ministry’s Associate Director of Communications, Eric Holmer:



For over 15 years, Greek Conference has been a weekend where fraternity and sorority students encounter Jesus in powerful ways. It is a weekend of commitments that bring changes back to campuses and chapter houses.



Greek Conference 2011 saw many of these commitments made. From times of worship and prayer, to the discussion and interaction of the general sessions and concentrations, students spent their weekends reflecting on who Jesus is, and how he is relevant to life in the Greek system.



Here are some of the commitments that came from this year's Greek Conferences in Charlotte and Indianapolis:



  • 16 fraternity and sorority members made first-time decisions to follow Jesus as Savior and Lord.
  • 21 made a commitment to investigate Jesus further along with brothers and sisters in their chapter
  • 254 students made re-commitments, indicating they wanted to repent from what was replacing God in their lives.
  • 295 students made a commitment to lead ministry on campus and in their house.
