Week of July 2
InterVarsity’s former Southern California region is now three new regions: San Diego, Greater Los Angeles, and Surf and Turf (north of Los Angeles). The creation of new regions means we have chapters on more and more California campuses. Pray for new Regional Directors Ramiro Marchena, Eddy Ekmekji, and Anne Hong (interim appointment), as they lead the staff teams in each of these regions.
Our Urbana 18 Student Missions Conference is now less than six months away. Pray that students would respond to God’s prompting by registering now and ask that the Lord would prepare students in the months ahead. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead and encourage the Urbana 18 Operations and Program Teams as they finalize and begin to implement plans for the December conference.
Pray for InterVarsity staff participating in our National Institute for Staff Education and Training (NISET), in Madison, Wisconsin, which ends July 3. Ask the Lord to use the NISET classes, which include everything from leading Bible study to advanced prayer ministry to Systematic Theology class for college credit, to help staff as they serve students and faculty across the nation.
