SMALL GROUPS

Screen Shot 2018-08-26 at 5.14.28 PM.png

InterVarsity Bruin Christian Fellowship offers small groups (SG) throughout the dorms and apartments at UCLA. These groups are committed to studying the Bible, prayer, worship, building community, and making Jesus known to the campus. These smaller, tight-knit groups will provide opportunities to develop deeper friendships and keep one another accountable in our personal journey with God. We also have focused ministries that are catered to specific groups on campus: LaFe (Latino Small Group), BCM (Black Campus Ministries), ISM (International Student Ministries), and Catholic Small Group. Each small group is equipped with a leader so find one near you and get plugged in!

Using the manuscript inductive study method developed by Paul Byer, students will able to look through the Gospel of Mark and study the scripture in its original context and meaning.

spring fling

During Spring Fling, we host another weekend long manuscript study conference. Here, we continue our studies from the year and spend a couple of days letting the Word transform us. For new students, we offer Luke Study, where they can experience the inductive method and apply what they learn to their lives.

summer conference

Our last conference of year, Summer Conference is a week of fun with no finals or exams to worry about. After the last week of school, this conference allows students to celebrate what Jesus has done in the past year, as well as dive into a week-long manuscript studies. With tons of time to have fun with the community and relax, Summer Conference is a great place to grow in our spiritual journeys.

black campus ministries (bcm)

Black Campus Ministries (BCM) is a branch of InterVarsity that aims to serve black students by holding weekly Bible studies and hosting socials and events such as discussion panels. BCM’s mission is to strengthen the black students on campus by building a sense of community while seeking Jesus. BCM also reaches out to UCLA’s campus as a whole by hosting events such as Black Church Monday, which invites students of all backgrounds to be immersed in the black church experience and hear a powerful message. In sum, BCM helps people who are trying to learn more about their faith and identity as a black person.


latino student ministries (la fe)

LaFe is committed to developing Latino leaders who serve the campus community with the love of Jesus Christ as they explore God, faith, and the experiences of our people. Our hope is to develop Latino students who understand and accept with joy the love and grace of Jesus Christ, embrace their Latino identity as a gift from God, and live out of a strong sense of self-worth that empowers them for ministry, missions, and the marketplace.
