What would it take to help you move from being someone whose faith “survives” college to becoming a thriving follower of Jesus? Come and experience how to thrive in college by being a growing disciple IN Christ, LIKE Christ, and WITH Christ.
Is your small group struggling to follow Jesus in His mission? Is there an area on campus you want to bring the Gospel? "Living and Leading with Jesus" is a space to gather with other apprentices and leaders. Come grow your leadership to look more like Jesus and create steps for leading your small group in outreach back on campus.
For 2,000 years the teachings of Jesus 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 he has for us today. Qualifying participants receive a discount for this track.
Join a group of internationals and Americans as we spend the weekend together looking at who Jesus is and learning from him. We will celebrate God's love for cultures and be invited to join him both at Cross Training and back on campus. Qualifying participants receive a discount for this track.
Are you majoring in the arts? Or would you like to connect with other artists? In this track we will explore the meaning of being a flourishing artist from our Creator's example. We will 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.
Are you an athlete and a Christain? Do you find these two roles competing at times? Have you ever considered God's design for sports? This track is designed for any collegiate athlete involved in a varsity or club sport who wants to begin exploring the intersection between faith and athletics.
What does it mean to live in the tension of inhabiting this world while not feeling apart of it? And what does our ethnic identity have to do with it? Is my ethnic idenity a curse or a blessing from God? Explore how the beauty and healing of brokenness in our stories can lead to speaking up and amplify God's healing work in the world. This track is intended for students of color that find themselves the minority in a majority culture (e.g., chapter, campus).
Jesus' final words to his followers were to "go and make disciples." That is his charge to us too. This is Jesus' multiplicative plan to reach the world. Wow, how do we do this - and how do we lead others to do this? Come learn and grow with us as we gain some practical skills and a model for discipleship and disciple-making.
Have you stumbled across the phrase in Matthew “if your right eye causes you to sin tear it out and throw it away.”? And found yourself being astonished? You are not alone, the crowds who followed Jesus were as well. If you have wanted to understand Jesus’s teachings in the Sermon on the Mount this track is for you.
Have you struggled to have what you believe line up with your actions? In Ephesians we will wrestle with and investigate what it means to be saved by grace and how to live that out without being legalistic. You will also be equipped to bring this study back to campus.
Ever felt like you are trying to lead and influence your community and campus but nobody gets onboard? Titus is about one leader placed outside of his comfort zone. Join us if you want your leadership edge sharpened as well as your faith reignited.
Do you ever wonder what Jesus would say to you if He were speaking to you face to face? How about what sort of message would he want to communicate to your InterVarsity chapter? Would you be shocked or embarrassed? Would he have words of encouragement or rebuke? Join us for a weekend of listening to the words of Jesus in the book of Revelation and walk away from the weekend ready to join in his mission.
Whether you’re new to prayer, frustrated with prayer, or wanting to grow more purposeful in prayer, we invite you to spend a weekend seeking God and how his voice can become central to your everyday life and ministry. This track will encourage you to intercede for others and equip you to feed a 'prayer furnace' back on campus.
Discovering God's callings and pursuing them while in the midst of transition from college (e.g. decision making, relationships, and finances) is often difficult at best. We will seek to remove common misunderstandings and barriers to form a dedicated plan to follow that call. Join other upper classmen as you deepen your call as a life-long disciple of Christ. The Lilly Endowment is investing in Living Out God's Call which allows qualifying participants to receive a discount for this track.
InterVarsity is committed to grow in love for people of all cultures and ethnicities. But what does that look like and how do we bring others along in this journey? Come and explore the practice and theology of multiethnicity and reconciliation which is so critical for our public witness. And learn how to embody Jesus' reconciling work on your campus.
