Intervarsity Christian Fellowship

Reaching College Students with the Good News of Jesus

Looking to the future, SBPC invests in one of the largest university ministries in the country. Intervarsity Christian Fellowship’s mission is to establish and advance at colleges and universities witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God’s Word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture and God’s purposes in the world. IVCF is active on almost 700 campuses in the USA. We at SBPC support Ramiro & Wendy Marchena in San Diego. Read more about them below.

Ramiro & Wendi Marchena (Cal State San Marcos-Mira Costa-Palomar)

Our mission field is the 50,000 college students in North County San Diego spread out among three campuses: Cal State San Marcos, Mira Costa College and Palomar Community College. In the next three years, we are seeking to plant over 100 small groups among the three campuses. Each small group reaches a different pocket of campus.

Student leaders are mobilized to plant new small groups where none exist and to call their peers into a relationship with Jesus. Over the last four years, we have seen over 500 students make a decision to follow Jesus.
