Time away from campus. When we are away from everyday distractions we are better able to engage with others and hear what God might want to say to us.
Connecting with other campuses. We can learn so much from other people’s experiences. When students and staff attend conferences they get opportunities to meet people from different campuses. They can learn from each other how they do ministry similarly and differently. This can breathe fresh life in the ministries.
Opportunity to learn from other staff. We can try to teach students something over and over again and they never really grasp it. But sometimes when they hear it from someone new, it makes sense! Students may learn something at a conference they might not be able to learn on campus.
These are just a few reasons InterVarsity has so many conferences. We hope someday
you are able to volunteer at one of our conferences and see us in action!
