ABOUT THE MISSION:
The Campus Is Our Mission Field
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA is a vibrant campus ministry that establishes and advances witnessing communities of students and faculty. We minister to students and faculty through small group Bible studies, large gatherings on campus, leadership training, thoughtful discipleship and life-changing conferences and events.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is the 5th largest university in the state of Texas with between 28,000-30,000 students enrolled. InterVarsity has been at UTSA for nearly 25 years and continues to see great need in the lives of students, and have a continued call to advance God's Kingdom at the largest university in our city. We have seen graduates of UTSA go on to be leaders in education, business, and academia. They have become community leaders, non-profit leaders, missionaries, ministers, mothers, and fathers. We have seen the world changed and we have seen lives transformed!
