We are a multi-ethnic community of students at UCLA who are seeking to know the full life that Jesus offers. We offer small group communities throughout the dorms and apartments where we study the life of Jesus and the purposes of God, and challenge one another to put our faith into action.

What is Mark Study?

Mark Study is an in-depth look at the life of Jesus.  During the course of the week you will meet with other students like yourself and study the biography of Jesus according to Mark.  It’s one of the best ways to discover for yourself who Jesus is, and what it means to follow him.  Mark 1 is the first half of this biography and it’s open to all students regardless of your spiritual background.  So whether you consider yourself a Christian or not, join us for one of the best experiences that InterVarsity has to offer.
