One of the great things about InterVarsity is that students just like you primarily lead it. Our leadership team is made of students put in the context of teams. Below are those teams and what they do as a part of the leadership team.
Scripture portrays Christians as the only community that exists for the people not yet in the community. We want to be a community that is service and justice oriented in all that we do. We want to create as many “onramps” in to the community as possible. Because of this reality, the Outreach Team’s ultimate goal is to organize, lead, and enable the InterVarsity community in connecting with every corner of the campus and beyond. In order to do this, the team helps keep the chapter focused on God’s heart for justice and for those who don’t know him yet.
The vision for Large Group is for it to have a backyard cookout kind of feel. Because of this, we want our “backyard cookout” to be inviting, approachable and intriguing. We want Large Group be a place where people want to come, feel like they belong and experience the Gospel in word and community. This team is committed to planning and implementing the different dynamics of our weekly Large Group meetings.
The Worship Team works in conjunction with the Large Group Team and works hard to create a spiritually welcoming and nourishing environment each week, where God is the object of our worship. Along with Friday night Large Group meetings, they lead worship in various other InterVarsity functions, such as Lead Retreats and prayer services.
Small Groups are the life-blood of the community. It’s where we grow in intimacy with each other and the Lord as we read scripture and live life together. Small groups are not a supplemental activity in InterVarsity, but rather they are fundamental to all that we do. The SGL’s role is to facilitate and lead this God-centered small group community that has components of scripture, shepherding and mission.
The Exec Team is a group that consists of the Chapter President and team coordinators. This team does a combination of administration and shepherding, with both logistical and spiritual components. The Exec Team serves the chapter by planning and working out of detail, praying over the other leaders and the chapter, and discerning where the Lord is leading us as a witnessing community.
