Growing a Team



As many of you know, on July 1 of 2020 I accepted a call to serve as the Director for InterVarsity's Graduate & Faculty Ministry in the Upstate NY Area.

Born out of a fundamental belief that Jesus is indeed redeeming all things, our mission is to plant and grow witnessing communities of graduate students and faculty that function as a redeeming presence among the people, ideas and structures of the university and its professions. 

A key strategy in this mission is recruiting and hiring a staff team—a healthy, diverse and inclusive team—so that we might more fruitfully reach every corner of every campus in Upstate NY.

Many of you have been praying for God to bring staff to Upstate NY. Thank you!! I am pleased to announce that, by God's grace, we have hired Eric B. to a Campus Staff Ministry position with InterVarsity’s Graduate & Faculty Ministries at the University of Rochester. Eric will begin in this role on July 1.

Eric has served with InterVarsity's Undergraduate Ministry at Baylor University for the past 3 years, during which time he found himself planting a graduate chapter.  Eric was a really strong staff candidate with planting experience, good emotional and spiritual health, and has a clear vision for Graduate & Faculty Ministry. We thank God for calling Eric to this important campus ministry role with GFM! 

Please hold Eric and his family in prayer as they transition into this new role and make the move from Waco, TX to Rochester, NY.
When we announce Jesus as Lord of heaven and earth, a power is unleashed which transforms not only individuals, but also communities, ideas, structures, cultures, institutions, etc. 

As one of the most significant cultural engines today, colleges and universities are among some of the most strategic places to change the world. They are the spaces where character is developed, ideas are seeded, people are matured and tomorrow is inspired. 

Announcing Jesus as Lord of heaven and earth in the college and university setting today is how we reach the world for Christ tomorrow. This is our higher calling in higher education.

This is our calling in Upstate NY. In the graphic below, you will find a list of priority colleges and universities across the state. 

I will have some more exciting news to share soon, but for now, will you please pray for these campuses? 

Please pray that God will raise up campus staff, student leaders, ministry partners and faculty allies on each campus across the state.
Thank you so much for your prayerful and sacrificial partnership in the gospel on campus. 

In Joy,
