InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA, one of the largest evangelical college campus ministries in the country, is defending a new policy that asks staff to leave if they disagree with the ministry’s position on sexuality.
According to the campus ministry, the new policy does not elevate the issue to a core doctrine but rather relates to the authority of Scripture and the need for staff to agree in an area that directly affects college students.
Greg Jao, InterVarsity vice president and director of campus engagement, told CBN News the ministry is asking staff to “self-disclose” if they disagree with the organization’s theology on sexuality.
“We want to make sure that at least from InterVarsity’s perspective we’re providing a clear, consistent message and pointing people to Scripture in a clear, consistent way,” Jao said.
