June 2016

Dear NCF Ministry Partner,

Rejoice with us in what God is doing in the lives of nurses and students!
We invite you to pray and give as partners in God’s mission.


This is an historic moment in the 75-year history of NCF and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. We praise God that Kathy Schoonover-Shoffner will lead NCF beginning July 1 after I retire. Kathy is deeply devoted to God, to others, and to nursing, and she reflects caring compassion and professional excellence in all she does.

As NCF Director, Kathy will be part of the national leadership team of InterVarsity. InterVarsity will also have new leadership this year with the appointment of Tom Lin as the next President. Praise God for providing these highly qualified, godly leaders!


In the last 10 years, the number nursing students involved in InterVarsity ministry has increased 58%! Thank God for students who are growing as disciples of Jesus and who will serve him as nurses. We praise God for 26 new believers this year and look forward to increased opportunities to influence nursing students in the coming year.


We need your prayer and financial support for more students and nurses to be impacted by the life-changing message of the gospel. We want to see more:

  • Campus staff to equip students and faculty in biblical discipleship.
  • Nurse scholars to join the Journal of Christian Nursing editorial team.
  • Resources and opportunities for discipleship, Bible study, and spiritual care.

See the Praise and Prayer Guide for more ways to pray! Please show your support to the future of NCF ministry with a gift to the NEW GROWTH FUND before June 30, 2016 as we end our fiscal year. Join us in investing in the hope of the gospel for nurses, students and educators.

Thank you for allowing me to serve as NCF Director. I have been blessed beyond measure, and I look forward to volunteer NCF service.

To God be the glory!
