MISSIONS & MINISTRY
Getting their attention
In 1928 a small group of university students
in England sent one of their peers to Canada.
Howard Guinness spent a year criss-crossing
our country, urging students to see their
schools as places where God might capture the
attention, even the very lives, of their friends.
His strategy included summer camps where
young adults could learn to be leaders, helping
children and teens discover God’s love and
become life-long followers of Jesus. Howard’s
risky obedience birthed Inter-Varsity Christian
Fellowship. Today, through camp and campus
ministries, we still position ourselves at the front
lines of youth culture, inviting young people to
give their lives to the world-changing way of
Jesus. They are still saying yes.
Our staff help students and faculty form
Christ-centred communities in more than
70 Canadian high schools, colleges and
universities. Every summer, 9,400 children,
teens and young adults spend a week or more
at our Pioneer Camps and Circle Square
Ranches. We welcome another 20,000 during
our retreat and rental season.
This December, we will co-host the Urbana
Student Missions Conference in St. Louis,
Missouri. Young people are not lost to the call
of Jesus. Someone just needs to get their
attention. Will you come with us?
