I found Jesus, or rather He found me, at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in 1990 in a suburb of Philadelphia when I was a sophomore in college. My staff worker gave a talk on Romans 5:8 and it changed my life! I joined a gospel-believing church and taught Sunday School.

Did God change your life through InterVarsity?
