Intervarsity Christian Fellowship at Bakersfield College is one of the largest clubs on campus.

About 100 students belong to the club, which is advised by faculty members Patrick and Janet Fulks.

The president of the club is Jacob Turner and the campus staff workers are Joseph Litto and Kendra Green.

The club holds meetings on Wednesdays in the Fireside Room from noon to 1 p.m.

“I joined last year, I was new on campus and I didn’t know anybody. I heard of the club and I wanted to get involved so I did and I met a lot of people,” said Rose Spicer, a club student leader.

Activities include Bible studies, fellowship and campus prayer. On Wednesdays, the club sets up an information table in the Campus Center foyer. Free lemonade is often served.

“Our goal is that every student on the BC campus would have the opportunity to decide to be for or against Jesus Christ,” said Litto. “Everyone is accepted.”

At the weekly Bible studies, students who come in and don’t have Bibles are provided a copy of the passages that are being studied.

“I think it’s a great club, and everyone is accepted,” said member James Curtis. I’ve been in the club for a couple of years, and I consider the other members to be more than my friends. I consider them to be family.”

The club will attend an Oct. 26-28 conference called “Racial Reconciliation” on Catalina Island. Spaces are available for students wishing to attend. The cost is $85 and includes boat charges, food and activities at Catalina.
