You make Bible literacy happen in Canada.

Because of your support, University students curious about the Bible, many of them nonbelievers, are able to participate in Intervarsity’s MARKcamp. Students spend one week, six to nine hours a day, in an intensive inductive study of Mark’s Gospel to learn more about Jesus’ sacrifice and service. As they walk alongside Jesus and His disciples, they discover the life-transforming invitation He has for them.

Pastor Vera, a University of Toronto Campus Minister, writes:

Just over 100 students participated, and they loved it. Over 50 students came for daily prayer ministry, 4 students asked to be baptized and 3 nonbelievers accepted Jesus as their Saviour! I had the privilege to sit and pray with 2 of these students as they told Jesus they wanted the new life He had to offer.

I asked God for at least one U of T student to make a decision to follow Jesus. God answered that prayer in abundance in Florian, a 4th year student…

At MARKCamp I expected to learn about scripture, enjoy the Muskoka environment, and meet new people. I enjoyed reading the book of Mark in a much deeper way, but my most valuable moments came from hearing other people’s experiences of Christ in their lives. After hearing from them, I decided to bring to Jesus the concerns I had about God’s justice and my own need for control and achievement. When I met Jesus in prayer, I gave up an unhealthy sense of pride and superiority and was able to view everyone as children of God. I have found great joy in this new state of being and I decided to pick up my cross and follow Him.

Please pray for the students that are able to attend MARKcamp because of your support!
