Ministries linking arms for spiritual revival on college campuses

By November 13, 2019

USA (MNN) — College campuses are often considered domains of anti-Christian rhetoric where faith goes to die. But could the next great spiritual awakening in America come from these very campuses?

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship evangelist York Moore seems to think so. InterVarsity has partnered with 150 other organizations for the EveryCampus movement.

“We have resourcing event organizations like our friends at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, Fouad Masri with The Crescent Project, many kinds of organizations that are providing excellent resources, events, [and] experiences for the college campuses.”

“Then we also have church networks and planting networks — partners like the Foursquare Church that are planting churches all across America.”

EveryCampus’s vision: revival on US college campuses.

“We’re planting campus ministries across the country. We don’t care if you call them InterVarsity or Cru or Blue Polka Dot Christian Fellowship! We just want a Gospel community on every campus in America.”

To that end, EveryCampus is supporting Together 2020, an event that will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 20, 2020.

Moore says, “We’re hoping to gather hundreds of thousands of young people — primarily college-aged students — for the next great moment in American history.”

Together 2020 is an immersive event that will feature several Christian speakers and worship artists. Students will come for a time of worship, connecting with Scripture, and prayer as they are sent out for Christ among their university peers.

Through these partnerships and collaborations, Moore is encouraged by Christian leaders across America coming together to support the next generation of the Church. Ministries are laying down their own agendas and raising up the only name that does matter — Jesus.

“I’ll go to meetings and one organizational leader will be wearing the shirt of another organizational leader. We’re going to conferences and exhibiting for one another. We’re paying each other’s invoices,” Moore says.

“But here’s the thing. If God is sending a new move, these are the kinds of things that we would expect to see. We would expect to see leaders laying down their own agendas, their own flags for the purpose of something greater. And through this EveryCampus coalition, that’s exactly what we’re seeing.”
