Around that time, God placed a vision for reaching this campus on InterVarsity Area Director Brad Bertelsen’s heart, and in 2014 he acted on this vision by traveling to the campus and beginning to cultivate relationships with local pastors and students who wanted to see InterVarsity on their campus as well. InterVarsity at USU-E continues to grow, with the vision of engaging USU-E with Jesus’ gift of love and reconciliation.

Weekly Gatherings

Small Groups

A value of InterVarsity is to establish student led “witnessing communities” that seek to connect every corner of campus- whether it’s a dorm, the dance department, or their athletic team- to Christ. InterVarsity small groups are weekly, student-led Bible studies aimed at gathering communities of students to form deeper friendships and practically discover what it means to follow Jesus in college.

Talk to your campus staff about which small groups are happening on your campus. If you would like someone to contact you about them, click the button below and fill out our interest card form. We look forward to connecting with you.
