Growing up in a Christian home, I did it all - got baptized, attended Vacation Bible School, took my first communion, and then got confirmed. My home church was a huge part of my life.

I first became a Christian in fall of 2012 when I heard someones testimony and felt like God was there speaking to me. I had never felt anything like it and the feeling overwhelmed and amazed me. In the fall of 2013 I went to Greek Conference in Boston where I felt God was speaking to me telling me to share his word with others in my sorority. While at the conference, I learned more about the potential of leading a Greek Bible study.

That’s right. Arguably the most “progressive” national news organization has its own qualms with the trend of uncommitted romantic slumber parties, otherwise known as "shacking."

This is the time of year when I inevitably start singing the Will Smith classic, “Summertime” in my head.

If you’re in a fraternity or sorority and have spent more than five minutes online, there’s a three letter hashtag you’ve seen just about daily for the last few years: #TFM.

To varying degrees, chapter ministry leaders across the country have experienced resistence to having a Bible study within their fraternity or sorority. But even if you've never heard anyone verbalize a complaint or concern, take a look at your small group and consider these suggestions for being as welcoming and inclusive as possible.

How did you first hear about/get connected with Greek InterVarsity when you came to campus?

The summer before I came to Cal, I ran into a girl at my home church who is a year older than me and had been at Cal and in Chi Omega for one year. When I mentioned my concerns about how being in the Greek system might affect my faith, she told me that some ministry leaders were actually hoping to start a fellowship for Christians in the Greek system in the upcoming year. Once at Cal, I became a member of Chi Omega and got involved with the brand new Greek ministry, which would later become Greek IV at Cal.

How did you first get connected with Greek InterVarsity when you came to campus?

The first time I ever heard about Greek Intervarsity was when one of my brothers, Skylar, was giving a talk about "Red Solo Cups" at the Greek IV core meetings on Wednesday nights. He invited me, and a bunch of my other brothers were already going so I decided to attend. After going and seeing how nice everyone was and how great the community was, I decided that this was something that I wanted to dedicate my time to.

This BIG Question comes from Casey Groff, who has been on Greek InterVarsity staff since 2009. She shares out of her personal history with alcohol, and the countless conversations she's had helping fraternity and sorority students walk through their questions and relationship to alcohol. Casey's story adds to an important conversation about the intersection of partying and life as a Christian. We hope you are able to think through this topic with a new perspective.

There are so many people who support Greek InterVarsity's vision of seeing lives transformed by Jesus, Greek systems renewed, and world changers developed. Being spread out across the country makes it hard to know who is who, but we've been making it easier with each interview of staff and student leaders. Please enjoy meeting this vibrant, caring, and dedicated campus staff in Athens, Georgia!

Over one year ago, Jessica helped to plant Greek InterVarsity on her campus. They are still in the planting stage, but seeing a lot of potential for growth. Jessica is still involved in the planning and hopes to leave a legacy when she graduates.

Greek InterVarsity is just one part of a larger movement that connects with students and faculty on campuses across the country.

The main speaker at Greek Conference 2014 Indianapolis was Andy Dalton. He spoke about how we often hold onto ideas, thoughts, or things that negatively keep us from our relationship with God. For his illustration, Andy used the image of a tennis ball and what it would be like to physically drop it. A student from an Indiana campus connected with that image, and this is her story told by the Greek InterVarsity staff at that campus.
