Although the majority of student events happen at a local campus and national movement level, many IFES regions host student and staff events so that those involved, especially those from small movements, can have more encouragement from brothers and sisters in Christ in different contexts, cultures and countries—but united in mission to the university. Most IFES regions also host various staff trainings, senior leadership consultations and regional team meetings. Below are a few of the student, graduate and ministry focused regional events planned for the coming years.
If you are interested in attending any of these events please contact your local staff worker, or the contact person for your national movement, or see the event website if listed.
If you are interested in helping send a student, graduate or young staff to one of these events, please see the giving links below.
