We take seriously our call to follow Jesus into all corners of the world and proclaim his love, grace and truth to all people and all cultures. Like the prophet Micah, we admonish students and faculty to "do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God."

Since InterVarsity’s beginning, we have consistently called every generation of students to participate in God’s global mission and contribute to the ministry of IFES. Over the decades, this commitment has had various structures within InterVarsity. Our current restructuring is intended to align our missions priorities more closely with our Field Ministries. 

InterVarsity’s Missions Director, Scott Bessenecker, oversees our campus-focused mission initiatives listed below. Our vision for growth is a deeper partnership with campus-resourcing ministries such as chapter planting, growth, evangelism, discipleship, etc. We want to provide greater clarity and integration as these teams innovate and serve the Field ministries.
