“For 50 years IV students from Indiana University of Pennyslvania have been getting together for a picnic at different homes in the Pittsburgh area. In the early years we'd have 30 or more people with spouses and children. These days we may have 10-12 who still are in the area or who travel to Pittsburgh for the event. We'll celebrate our 50th at Seneca Hills Conference Center in Franklin, PA where we had our Spring and Fall conferences each year. Our IV Staff will come: Neil and Jeanie Rendall. It's been super to see one another through the years, to meet the children, and now the grandchildren, to see how the training we got through IV has helped us to serve in our churches and to nurture our children.”

The majority of young people today are not fans of church. Only 1 in 5 says attending church is very important to them.
You can reach them by investing in campus ministry, bringing a student-led gospel presence to every corner of every campus.
For eight consecutive years, InterVarsity has been awarded 4 stars (in a 4-star rating system) by Charity Navigator, a nonprofit rating organization. This rating recognizes InterVarsity's strong fiscal management, and is based on InterVarsity's program stability and low fundraising expenses.
