You won't come back the same.

Compelling is Michigan InterVarsity's annual fall conference and is designed specifically to help you grow. You'll discover more of who God is, learn to hear His voice, and be challenged as a community to enter more fully and courageously into His purposes for your campus and world. Whether you've followed Christ for years or are simply curious, God longs to meet you there.

Watch the Video below and hear the experiences of students who went last year.



Expect to experience the following aspects of Compelling this year:

  • "Compelling completely changed my life."
    Sarah, Western Michigan University
  • "Compelling is a space where you can ask tough questions and really learn what it means to give your life to Christ."
    Mark, AIV at University of Michigan
  • "Jerusalem will be a city without walls... And I myself will be a wall of fire around it," declares the LORD, "and I will be its glory within"
    Zechariah, the prophet
  • "It changed the way I saw God, and when I understood the love of our Father, it just compelled me to share that with everybody else."
    Gabe, Western Michigan University
  • “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
    Isaiah, the prophet

Go Deep.

Tracks at Compelling provide ample time and important tools for diving deep into God's word and subjects of faith. We're all at different points in our spiritual journeys, which is why you'll find a host of tracks to choose from in order to optimize a good fit. Maybe you have no idea where to start...that's fine too. Directly below is a menu designed to help identify which tracks are most relevant to you. Each track is represented by a descriptive subtitle contained in the red and yellow boxes below. Hover over them to reveal the track name and follow the link to a thorough explanation of the track. Don't forget to ask for advice from your staff worker or past Compelling students! [space is limited and tracks fill up, so we strongly encourage you to register early!]
