Tracks

Most of your weekend you will be meeting in your selected track. Please choose carefully! Read the descriptions, prerequisites, and talk with your InterVarsity staff for suggestions. For a track description just click on a track below.

Level 1
  • Cross Roads

    For 2,000 years the teachings of this Jewish carpenter and rabbi have impacted the world. Are you curious? Do you have a friend who is curious about Jesus and would accompany you to the track? Join us for a weekend of discovery as we look closely at who Jesus was, what his life and death were about, and what relevance they have for us today.

  • Cross Roads International

    Are you curious about the Bible and Christianity? Join other international students and learn about Jesus, what his life and death were about, and what relevance they have for us today.

  • On Campus, On Purpose

    This track will help you move from being someone just intent on ''surviving'' college (with your faith barely intact!), to becoming a thriving follower of Jesus who makes a difference on campus. You will be challenged to give yourself fully to Jesus, to nurture your relationship with him, and to reach out to others with the good news of Christ.

  • God at Work in the Arts

    Do you enjoy using your artistic gifts or are you majoring in the arts? Do you long to connect with other artists and professional or experienced artists? In this track we will dive into how to be a creator of culture, an artist of integrity, how to avoid being a slave to performance and perfectionism, God’s plan for the arts, and gain practical tools for starting missional artist communities. Bring your friends, instruments, dance shoes, drawing equipment, or poetry for a weekend of connecting our arts, lives, and faith.

Level 2
  • Witnessing Communities

    God has called InterVarsity Christian Fellowship to establish and advance witnessing communities on college and university campuses. How is a witnessing community led? Why witnessing communities? What does a witnessing community look like on campus? In order to be part of His plan on your campus, come and see how God's plan is, and always has been, to reach and redeem the world through witnessing communities.

Level 3
  • Disciples Multiplying Disciples

    Some of Jesus' final words to his disciples were to "go and make disciples". His commission to us is the same. How are we doing at being disciples of Jesus ourselves? Are we intentionally inviting others to follow Him and discipling them along the way? And are those we are discipling doing the same for others? This is the sort of multiplicative ministry Jesus had in mind. Come learn and grow with us as we gain some practical skills and a model for discipleship and disciple-making.

  • Praying for a Change

    Looking to grow in prayer? Want to see change in hearts and minds? Come learn and experience how the love and power of God revealed thru prayer can change you, your campus and the world.

    ''The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.'' -Samuel Chadwick.

  • 1 Peter (Bible Dig-In)

    Who we are informs what we do and how we do it. In a series of striking metaphors Peter lays out a rich description of our identity in Christ. In this dig-in we will revisit not only the foundation of our own joy and satisfaction, but also a call to action that flows out of who we really are.

    Put 25 students in a room for a weekend with boxes of colored markers, an experienced leader, and God's inspired Word, and life-changing things can happen. We call it a ''Dig-In.'' You might call it one of the most valuable weekends of your life because you will learn the skill of carefully studying the Bible for yourself and hear a word from God.

  • Joshua (Bible Dig-In)

    Do you ever wonder what it looks like to be a follower of the LORD and a leader of people in changing and challenging times? Come explore the leadership of Joshua and be prepared to see your walk with the LORD, your relationships, and the impact of your life bear fruit that lasts

  • Parables of the Kingdom (Bible Dig-In)

    We will spend time together gleaning truth about God's Kingdom through the stories Jesus told to explain it in Matthew 13. This track will offer great insights into parables as well as the Kingdom of God!

  • Radical

    Jesus calls his people to be world changers; a calling both exhilarating and exhausting. Many people who set out to change the world crash and burn, and yet others succeed. Why do some world changers implode while others remain healthy? This track explores the stories of world changers and the scriptures to uncover spiritual disciplines necessary for living the truly radical life of an agent of Kingdom change in this world.

  • Transform (Life After College)

    So graduation is approaching, how do you feel? Nervous? Excited? Both of those are normal. Join us for a weekend discussing how you can transform your view of life after college. We will talk about transforming our expectations, our pursuits, and our relationships. As well as how you can stay involved on campus your senior year. Come, be transformed as we look to God to meet us here and after college.

  • Intercessors

    A team of volunteers, staff and students seek to join Jesus who intercedes for us, and the Holy Spirit who prays ''too deep for words.'' The prayer times will include prayers for specific requests, each individual at the conference, and the work of the staff among the students. In silence, singing, scripture and psalms we present our petitions with gratitude, as we seek God's heart for his people.

  • Start Something New

    Whether you want to start a missional group among athletes, a network of dorm bible studies, a spiritual forum for Arts students, or any other creative mission on campus, Start Something new is a great guide to help you get started. This track will offer bible studies, journals, strategic steps and expert advice to walk you through the process of launching a missional group on campus. Grab a friend and go through it together. It's always better to have partners in ministry!
