The purpose of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA is to establish and advance at colleges and universities witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God’s Word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture, and God’s purposes in the world.
In 2016, God made it abundantly clear to me that he called me to a life of teaching, shepherding, and disciple making. So that summer, I dropped out of my 8-year direct medical program to pursue a life in full time ministry. In the Spring of 2018, I graduated from Brooklyn College with my BA in Cultural Anthropology and accepted a position with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship to be a campus staff minister in New York City. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of inviting students at the College of Staten Island to follow Jesus as savior and Lord. Throughout my time on staff, I’ve been able to train students to lead small groups, pray ministry, and planting efforts on campus.
