Interview with InterVarsity’s Director of Multiethnic Ministries
"We want to join hands with students and faculty and create an environment where people from every ethnic group can come and experience the love of God and meet people who are followers of Jesus. How do we help make that happen? Recently, I attended a diversity training workshop and learned that any time a person is in a new environment, they ask themselves three questions:
- Can I be myself here?
- Can I develop meaningful relationships with people in this room?
- Will I and others in this room be treated fairly?
Now, if the answers to those questions are “Yes,” the person will come back. If they can’t answer yes, even to one of those, they are not likely to return. I would love InterVarsity campus fellowships to be the kind of places where a person can come in and answer “Yes” to those questions."
