Eva, a First Pres member, mobilizes and equips InterVarsity staff and students to seek out, serve, and learn from internationals on college campuses across the U.S.  She and her team instill vision, create resources, consult, and conduct training with the vision to develop global disciples and leaders from every nation to every nation.

Did you know one million+ international students and scholars in the U.S. have minimal or no access to the Gospel outside of the U.S.?    Eva mobilizes and equips the 36,000 staff and students of InterVarsity to seek out, serve, and learn from internationals on U.S. campuses. Eva instills vision, creates resources, consults, and conducts training for staff and students.

 

We asked Eva to answer these questions to help describe her ministry.

What is IV/ISM's vision for ministry?

Since 1941, InterVarsity/USA has been seeking to establish and advance witnessing communities of students and faculty on college/university campuses “who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God’s Word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture, and God’s purposes in the world.” Go here to learn more about InterVarsity's history.

The International Student Ministry (ISM) department’s vision is to develop global disciples and leaders from every nation to every nation.  We long to see international and American students graduate with a global perspective to God’s Kingdom and the world. 

Describe the focus of your ministry – the past year’s activities and goals for the coming year.

About 50% of the International students in InterVarsity are in international student-specific chapters while the remaining 50% are in “general” chapters. Eva's focus is on the second group.  Her dream is to see every InterVarsity chapters with international involvement.  Each year, she works towards that goal by mobilizing and equipping American staff to better align with God’s heart for the world—to share the Good News with cultural wisdom, to follow Jesus and lead in a way that reflects God’s global values. This story paints a picture of her work.
