Meet Brian, Lauren and sweet baby girl Mackenzie.
They are very dear to my husband and I as they were some of the first friends we had in the C-U area.
They work for a campus ministry organization called Greek Intervarsity and two years ago took new positions in North Carolina; we miss them.
I asked Brian and Lauren to share a little about what they do because it’s awesome and I am so thankful for their ministry.
“We desire to help fraternity and sorority students integrate their faith with their lives on campus. It is our desire to see students live one life as Greek Christians and not have two separate identities. Traditionally students in the Greek System have been seen as pagan and uninterested in spiritual things. They have been somewhat of an unreached people group in the United States. Although Greek students can look like they have it all together on the outside, on the inside there is much brokenness from family backgrounds, body image issues, high performance and achievement mentalities as well as social pressure in lifestyle choices. We have seen great spiritual interest among fraternity and sorority students. The best way to reach these students is to have someone they know and trust bring the gospel to them! So in order to do that we train and equip students to lead ministries and Bible studies in their fraternity and sorority houses with members of their fraternity and sorority. It is powerful to help students reach out to their friends. These life lessons translate beyond college to leading ministry wherever they are in life – workplace, neighborhood, etc. We’ve had a number of Greek InterVarsity alumni comment about how the ways they learned to deal with challenges in their fraternity or sorority helped when they faced similar challenges in their workplace or social circles. We want to help Greek students thrive in their 4 years of college to bless the next 40 years of their lives post-college!”
