Making God the central priority of your life, enhancing your influence for Christ on campus, and becoming a confident and effective student leader, is what InterVarsity Leadership Institute is all about.


The Leadership Institute will prepare you for a lifetime of service as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We may devote years and spend thousands of dollars preparing for a career, yet spend little time and money learning to love the Lord fully—heart, soul, mind and strength—and our neighbor as ourselves. The InterVarsity Leadership Institute offers an entire month at Cedar Campus in Cedarville, MI to prepare for lifelong discipleship and to discern God’s direction for your personal ministry—on campus and beyond.

  • Experiential learning
  • “Getting real” among like-minded student leaders
  • High-quality Bible teaching
  • Intensive discipleship
  • Practical evangelism experience
  • Personal time with the Lord in an unhurried setting
To invite, equip and commission the next generation of missional leaders, wholly transformed by Christ in heart, mind, soul and body, who courageously embrace the call of leadership in their lives to transform the campus, the church and the world.

We intend to equip leaders of every ethnicity and gender who are Spirit-filled, biblically informed and globally engaged; who are humble, compassionate and confident; and who will resolutely bear persuasive and creative witness to the Kingdom of God among all people.

Through a combination of morning workshops, individual study, personal interaction with staff and practice of leadership skills, you experience some of the best training InterVarsity has to offer.
