Frame of Reference
All staff members subscribe annually to the Purpose Statement of InterVarsity:
In response to Gods love, grace and truth:
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,
Gods Word,
Gods people of every ethnicity and culture
and Gods purposes in the world.

This purpose is admittedly more limited than the Great Commission. As a mission extension of the local
church, we have adopted boundaries on our activities based on our call to serve a defined group of Gods
people. Within the context of InterVarsitys purpose, all of the relationships and tasks that staff members
engage in as part of their work for InterVarsity have both eternal and temporal components.

InterVarsity is committed to developing men and women from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and
generations, whom God calls to work with us for both shorter and longer periods of service, as we pursue
the call of God in the university world.
Maturing Disciple of Jesus Christ:
Every InterVarsity staff member is to be a maturing disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, growing in obedience
to the Scriptures. The marks of a long-term love relationship with Christ in the fullness of His Spirit are
described in Galatians 5:22: "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self control." In the workplace, this fruit is revealed in healthy working
relationships which encourage all staff to accomplish their work and enhance their focus on the spiritual
aspects of their work.

Team Work:
Each individual staff person is a vital member of Christs body. This means that we will work with one
another in ways that honor and encourage all to grow in Christ while accomplishing His work. Our
community requires that each individual serve as a team member in a collegial and open environment
based on values, relationships, and vision as well as structure and position.
InterVarsity staff, both employees and volunteers, commit to serve God and all InterVarsity colleagues,
students, and partners, with sensitivity to both the eternal and temporal dimensions of our work.
"Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord." (Colossians 3:23a)
