StudentLife Communities


StudentLife Rotterdam has started the weekly meetings again. For information click on the Facebook page on one of the cities here

Are you a Christian, and do you want to grow and learn how to share about your relationship with God?

Are you not a believer, but do you together with other ‘seekers’ want to learn more about the meaning of life and discover more about God?

Become part of this colorful community full of focus on the meaning of life, friendship, fun, and life and faith questions!

Coaching and community concerning life and faith questions. That is what Agapè StudentLife stands for. With coaches, students and volunteers we help to create a meaningful student life.
Coaches and students of Agapè StudentLife meet each other at home or at the campus, during (international) conferences and workshops, or just at the pub

The very first Veritas debate in Breda!

Veritas Breda

I have been praying with my former IFES colleagues, and especially Gerrit Benschop, for a few years to see a Veritas forum at a Hoge School in The Netherlands. I heart this week that the students in Ichthus Breda were able to make this happen. Here you can find some information about the theme of the evening. We are thankful for all God is doing through the Veritas forums. Christianity is brought to a more central place in the thoughts of students through these events. Very important ministry! Debates on YouTube can be found here

While still with IFES I was able to initiate a Veritas team in Middleburg in 2012. Together with my then colleague Gerrit Benschop, national co-ordinator of Veritas in The Netherlands, we gave the first training and guidelines to build the team. For forums in Middleburg have a look here
