NYCUP 2018-2019 Vision Call


There is much to celebrate! This past March, we had more colleges (28) participate in RecWeek than we ever have and more importantly, the most IV staff (14) ever as well. Our content was integrated, aligned and fruitful back on campus. Click here and see the resources for yourself! 

Because of your prayers and generosity “12 Lies" is coming out in December right before Urbana!  Emotionally Healthy Activist also got a thumbs up from IV @ Rutgers-New Brunswick and a small group of ministry partners. My other three proposals (created last Summer) are in development and I will be flying to Chicago in August for more conversations with IVP about these projects. Praise God! 

Now, the question is “what’s next?” I believe that Jesus is saying, put down your nets and follow me. 

InterVarsity in NY/NJ Region is changing in hopes that we'll be better positioned to reach the 1.2 million college students that we are called to. My role is also changing nationally as the work we do around discipleship, justice and emotional health becomes more well known. My role as a writer, leader and teacher is changing as well as books are forthcoming, our culture and society become more volatile, and faithful, Emotionally Healthy leadership is needed beyond my normal scope. 

With all that in mind, I feel a deep sense to ask you to pray and partner in this next season, not because I know exactly what’s going to happen, but because I don’t. 

June & July Are Important Months.
I’m unsure of what impact my writing and teaching will have on our wider culture as well as what my roles and responsibilities will be Regionally and Nationally at conferences like Urbana. At Basileia, God moved through our redesign of Engaging God's World, a foundational discipleship track and Teach Us How to Pray gave practical steps to integrate prayer into their every day lives. I love that Jesus gives us the privilege of making disciples. I'm wondering what that looks like as InterVarsity grows in NY/NJ and beyond!  

What I do know though is that God is on the throne, we are to be His faithful, witnesses and He called me to be on-staff for at least 20 years and much of what happens the next year could determine what I do the next 10 years. 

With that in mind, I'd love to invite you join our vision call next week and consider three things:

Prayer: Click here to join/remain on our prayer list.
Giving: Click here to sign up! Please consider giving $50/month OR $250 if you already give by June 30.

Partnership: As you are on our call, discerning how God might be calling you to partner to move this mission forward. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to
