After being booted for requiring student leaders to be Christians, America’s largest campus ministry has regained its place at the nation’s largest public university system.
CT previously examined whether InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s derecognition from California State University (CSU) over its “discriminatory” faith statement was the tipping point for campus ministry nationwide.
InterVarsity has experienced tensions over its religious requirements at more than 40 college campuses in recent years, including most notably Vanderbilt University and Tufts University. Meanwhile, a surprising number of evangelicals disagree with faith requirements at public universities, though they also don’t want groups like InterVarsity punished.
