Purpose & Vision

Our Purpose Statement:
In response to God's love, grace and truth:
The Purpose of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is to establish and advance at Clarkson University and Potsdam State College a witnessing community of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God's Word, God's people of every ethnicity and culture and God's purposes in the world.

What is Our Vision?

Our vision is to be spiritually dynamic community devoted to Jesus Christ while serving and praying in unity toward seeing lives of students, faculty, and staff transformed, the campuses renewed, and world-changers developed.

How are we going about doing this, you might ask? The most visible expression of this each week is our Large Group Meetings. At LG you can expect worship through music, an engaging speaker addressing a relevant topic in an interactive format, true accounts of God's work in people's lives on campus, and an opportunity for people to respond to God by faith in prayer.

In addition to these meetings there are also smaller weekly groups called "Small Groups" (clever, right?) which meet in dorms. These times usually contain an interactive Bible study, musical worship, outreach service, and some form of fellowship. Awesome friendships that can last an eternity are frequently formed in small groups.
