Equipping graduates to influence their workplace for God
"I believe a strong graduate movement will lay the foundation for a sustainable student ministry."
Graduates are both the Fruit and the Future of IFES. In the post University world the most significant place for daily interaction with non-believers is our workplaces, where we sit day by day alongside people who may never know another Christian as well as they know us.
Much of European civilisation is built upon a collection of writings from 2000 years ago, known as The Bible.
Can this book still offer valid advice and positive framework for the cultures of Europe today? What interpretive principles help us to understand its texts? What worldview does it communicate?
We are setting up a brand new mentoring scheme to help inspire an emerging generation of young Christian professionals and academics as they start their careers.
We want to pass wisdom on from some of the best thought through Christians in a whole range of different academic and professional spheres to the young graduates coming out of IFES movements.

And as for the letters that reveal that I had a girlfriend thirty years before I was married and that we once held hands, well, the girl in question won’t even admit she ever knew me, never mind sell the letters to The Sun... No, this confession may expose me to greater ignominy...

Session 1 - Work in the Bible
Our mental tangles over guidance often come because we fail to think rightly about the will of God. We know that God governs everything, as 'he works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will' (Ephesians 1:11). This is the sovereign will of God.
“Can't you find out God's will for you life and stick to it?” After four degrees in a variety of disciplines, five different full-time jobs, and at least two career changes this is probably a valid question to ask me. Is it right that my constantly changing career path is an indication that I have found it difficult to know the will of God for my life? The answer is both yes and no
