Vision: 
Today’s students are tomorrow’s world leaders. Yet universities, the centers of thought, leadership and innovation, are on the whole, godless institutions that fail to engage with foundational Christian truths. As a result, students are being sent into the world unprepared to be the leaders of integrity that the world so desperately needs. International Fellowship of Evangelical Students exists to build students into communities of disciples, transformed by the Gospel and impacting the university and the church and society for the glory of Christ.
