UC Davis/ Mills College (UC Berkley IV)
1983

I came to college in 1979 and immediately plugged into IV through the small group led in my dorm, the next year my leader became my roommate and we led bible study together. First semester we watched the old black and white Francis Schaeffer films with Roger and Eileen Razari-Elrod (and many others!). Sophomore year Rebecca Manly Pippert led the Fall Retreat and how to do Friendship Evangelism. In graduate school I went a small school, so we joined UC Berkley's fellowship with Donna Dong and others. Appreciated the lunches and discipleship meetings over the years. I still love doing inductive Bible study with a manuscript!
