Our Ministry

How We Do Ministry

We minister in a variety of ways, from planting chapters that reach every corner of campus, sending students to global mission fields, serving the church through our retreat and training centers, and producing award-winning books and video resources.

“Without Black Campus Ministries I may have given up reaching my black brothers and sisters. Thank you for making a space for my friends to encounter Jesus.”

“Greek InterVarsity has transformed my life. It gave me purpose in my sorority and the tools I need to grow stronger in my faith.”

“With the Emerging Scholars Network, I now feel far more confident about being a Christian in a largely pluralistic and postmodern profession.”
