A Message from Director, Nigel Pollock

Nigel Pollock, DirectorAs InterVarsity enters its 90th year of ministry, I enter my first year of leading our mission. Having spent the past 30 years investing in the lives of young people all over the world through the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, it is a privilege to focus this next chapter of my calling here in Canada.

All over the world, students are facing similar challenges. They are are highly informed but not always thoughtful, widely connected but often lonely, well supported but struggling with mental health and resilience. Young people today are influenced by a broader range of cultural influences than ever before and this gives them enormous opportunities to make an impact for good with the Good News. Young people are engaging, passionate, concerned to make the world a better place, hungry for authenticity and looking for love.

My roots are in Scotland, where I was born, attended university and served for 18 years with the University and Colleges Christian Fellowship, one of our sister movements in the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students. For the past 10 years, I have led another IFES movement, the Tertiary Student Christian Fellowship in New Zealand.

Please pray for our mission as we seek to engage youth people with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ.
