2017-18 Annual Ministry Report – OVERVIEW

The Stories



We are excited to announce that this year’s Annual Ministry Report is coming to you in two formats: stories and a calendar.


God has been at work in incredible ways through InterVarsity on campus, at our nine camps and through multiple retreats, partnerships and short-term mission trips. To celebrate this, starting January 1st and continuing monthly, we’ll be sharing a story on our website and social media channels.

We’re also providing a set of specially designed calendars for mobile devices and computers. Simply click on the Downloads button above to access your calendar. We hope it will serve as a reminder to pray for children, youth and young adults in Canada and the world.


In the meantime, we don’t want you to have to wait until January to see how God has been meeting young people on campus and at camp. Below you’ll find an overview of the stories to come as well as statistical snapshots of our ministry.
