The mission of Geneva Fellowship can be summarized in one word – discipleship. We are commissioned to follow the mandate that Jesus left the church in Matt 28:19-20a.In our specific role on the campus of Queen’s University, we are charged with applying this mandate to the students, faculty, staff, and institution. Our ministry exists to invite both people and organizational structures to encounter Christ in deeper and more comprehensive ways and in this way to experience “the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13).At the heart of what we do is to represent Christ on campus, inviting every aspect of the university to draw closer to him. We do this by building authentic and meaningful relationships to demonstrate the love God has for everyone and to earn the right and respect needed to be a positive influencing force. We work to accomplish our task with our particular theological framework and Kingdom worldview which affirms that Christ is Lord of all creation, he is working to redeem his handiwork and he calls each one of us to participate in this work of redemption.
