Week of January 7
Thank God for InterVarsity’s 25th triennial Urbana Student Missions Conference last month in St. Louis. Urbana 18 expositor Rene Breuel challenged attendees with the theme Faithful Witness from the book of Revelation, urging them to acknowledge that only Jesus Christ deserves their allegiance. You can watch all of the videos on the Urbana 18 website. Pray for those who made commitments to follow Jesus and serve his mission in their career and in their lives.
As InterVarsity enters 2019, we are trusting God for the planting of more than 100 new chapters on campuses across the country. Ask the Lord to bring student leaders and volunteers to join us in these efforts. Pray that we would plant a vibrant witness to the hope and love of Jesus Christ on these campuses.
Students are returning to campus from winter break. Pray that they will begin their new semester or quarter resolving to study harder and connect with God. And, thank God that InterVarsity chapters are planning and implementing New Student Outreach activities to embrace new corners and new campuses.
