Under Geri’s leadership, Inter-Varsity is currently focused on a 10-year goal of Launching 20,000 Extraordinary Kingdom Leaders by 2020.

"We believe God will launch youth and students as Kingdom Leaders who are so transformed by Jesus that nothing will stop their enormous zeal for the things of God."

Geri was appointed president of Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship Canada in 2002, after spending 23 years leading the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA ministry in Northern California and Hawaii. Educated at the University of Toronto and Wheaton College, Geri is currently enrolled in a Doctor of Ministry program at Gordon-Conwell.

Al Anderson, Vice-President, Director of Campus Ministry

A strategic thinker with a passion for developing leaders, Al focuses his energies on placing well-trained teams of staff in high schools, colleges and universities across Canada.

"Our staff are committed to following Jesus and to helping others become his disciples too. As we place more staff, more students will come to know the transformational power of Jesus Christ."

Al graduated from Stanford University in 1980, where he met his wife, Sue, and also began his involvement with InterVarsity USA. He served the US movement from 1984 until he moved to Canada in 2004. Al has three children: Ian, Jacob and Naomi.

Al has an MBA from the University of Washington, a Master’s of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary and a D.Min in leadership from Gordon-Conwell Seminary.

 

Susie Colby

Susie Colby, Associate Vice-President, Campus

As people change, they change the world. Susie learned this lesson 30 years ago as a Stanford University student involved in social justice causes. Upon graduation, she joined InterVarsity USA, eager to help new generations of students become committed followers of Jesus. In 2003, Susie and her husband, Steve, accepted a call with Inter-Varsity Canada. The couple and their children, Caleb, Phoebe, and Lily, are now all Canadian citizens.

“Our mission is to launch Extraordinary Kingdom Leaders who will be generous peacemakers and community builders,” says Susie. “We train students in leadership, reconciliation, justice, cross-cultural relating, and more. But fundamentally we call them to become lovers of God and lovers of people.”

Susie’s missional call has included Sierra Leone, Guatemala, Bulgaria, Barbados, and East Asia. She is currently enrolled in a Master of Arts in Global Leadership at Royal Roads University.

Kim’s goal is to share Inter-Varsity’s vision and mission with alumni, donors, churches and the broader Christian community. A graduate of the University of Western Ontario, Kim practiced law in Ontario before joining Inter-Varsity in 2003.
