Inter-School Christian Fellowship

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from ISCF)

Inter-School Christian Fellowship (ISCF) or Inter-Scholastic Christian Fellowship is a Christian youth ministry that works with students within high schools. ISCF groups are often supported by external evangelical Christian organisations and churches - examples including the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, the Scripture Union, and local churches.[1][2] ISCF operates in countries including Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Philippines and the United States of America.

ISCF groups are often voluntarily led by senior students[3] and usually have the support and guidance of an older mentor, youth pastor, or a patron teacher.[4] ISCF groups mainly meet during lunchtime.

Activities

Some typical activities of an ISCF program include:

  • Talks by students and guest-speakers (e.g. Pastors)
  • Bible studies
  • Singing
  • Games
  • Barbecues
  • Camps
  • Combined gatherings and socials with ISCF groups from other schools

In supporting students wishing to be better equipped for serving in ISCF, there are various training programmes available, for instance the annual "ISCF Leadership Conference" (Scripture Union NSW),[5] or "Rising Leaders" (part of the Next Generation conference, hosted by the Katoomba Christian Convention Center).[6]
