The University of Oklahoma
We are seeking to reach every corner of the campus with the Gospel and to develop strong Christian Leaders through in-depth study of the Scriptures and Daily prayer.
We currently have 3 fellowships at OU. Each fellowship has a unique culture and focus, but is open to all every student.
InterVarsity at OU - reaching the whole campus.
Global InterVarsity - reaching International community.
South Asian IV - reaching the South Asian community.

Chris and Laurie serve students and staff on campuses in Oklahoma & Arkansas. We have watched God grow the ministry from 1 OU student in 2008 to about 250 American and international students on multiple campuses in two states. It is a privilege to watch God develop students into life-long world changers for the Kingdom!
