USA (MNN/ICF) — The InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter at the University of Texas-Pan American (UT-Pan Am) has seen encouraging growth in the last year.
Nick Dombrowski is the InterVarsity staff member who felt called to the UT-PA campus to serve the Latino students there. When he arrived in Edinburgh, TX, he quickly saw that the Lord had already been working before he ever set foot on campus.
Within his first week, he had discovered a chapter president, a core group of excited students, a faculty advisor, and relationships with community and church supporters. After only a few months, this growing group has about 30 committed members, several regular Bible studies, and an active outreach.
For Jacqui Torres, one of the student members, the LaFe group helps her connect to people that will help her grow spiritually. "I see it as my family away from home," she says. "They'll support me, and I can rely on them."
She adds, "I'm just glad that I can be a part of something that is reaching out to people who don't know Him. It's just awesome."
Developing leaders is important to InterVarsity and the university, and they are partnering together. Please pray for the InterVarsity team as they prepare for the fall's ministry.
