2019-2020 Leadership


Emily Crider was born in Pittsburgh, PA but raised in a suburb just north of Seattle. She graduated from Biola University having earned a BA in Christian Education/Ministry Leadership. Wanting to be further equipped for ministry, she went almost immediately to Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, just outside Boston. There she earned an MA in Theology and an MA in Religion, emphasizing in Spiritual Formation and Biblical Worship. Upon graduation, Emily went on to serve college students at a church outside Orlando and then off to Texas to care for college students and families at Laity Lodge Family Camp. Emily joined InterVarsity staff four years ago and made the move to Boulder, CO. She and her husband Jon live in Lafayette with their son, Owen. Emily would love to get to know you over coffee or a meal at your local favorite. Her email is: emily.crider@intervarsity.org

The Vision Team

The vision team serves as the brains of InterVarsity’s Graduate Christian Fellowship at the University of Colorado. They are the visionaries, the dreamers, the ones who set things in motion. They are committed to seeing graduate students at CU thrive through the ministry of GCF. Their objective is to help others integrate heart and mind for the service of Jesus Christ while having as much fun as possible!
