Thrilled by adventures in new places and inspiring students with bold Kingdom vision, Tom is in his dream job. He has worked with InterVarsity for over 22 years, at Brown, Yale, Wesleyan, Southern CT State, and several other CT universities. In 2013, Tom and his family (3 sons, 1 wife) moved to Madison, WI, to create and lead a national ministry helping students leverage their study abroad for mission.

 

Bridget

Spiritual Formation Coordinator

After experiencing 165 miles of the Camino de Santiago in Spain, Bridget knew that the practice of pilgrimage would be a vital invitation to this generation and their spiritual formation. She joins the team from Arizona and directs and develops our European pilgrimages offered to study abroad students as well as staff or partners of InterVarsity.

 

Chelsea

Student Advisor & Discipleship Coordinator

Originally from Michigan, Chelsea has called four continents home as she's pursued various cross-cultural adventures over the years. She longs to see young people grow in their identities in Christ and their love for others through cross-cultural displacement experiences.

 

Adri

Associate Director of Study Abroad

Adri is a Dutch native who has studied in Groningen, the Netherlands; Salzburg, Austria; and California, USA. Before he joined the team he served international students as InterVarsity campus staff in the Northwest. Now, Adri helps staff to inspire their American students to study abroad with God at the center.

 

Josh

Via Divina Director

Walking the Camino de Santiago with students in 2018 is the highlight of Josh’s staff career. When Covid forced the cancellation of Journey Spain in 2020, he and other team members co-created the Digital Camino. This became Via Divina. Josh is currently leading the third iteration of this digital pilgrimage which will focus on the lives of Francis and Clare of Assisi.
