The Real

  • First Presbyterian Church of Covina (map)

The Real is Southern California InterVarsity’s annual gathering of Black students that challenges students in lordship, mission on campus, and discipleship.

Students will interact in relevant worship, hear powerful messages, and build community with one another. On Friday night, we will also hold an open-mic café, allowing students to showcase their talents. For many Black students, there are too few opportunities to gather with a large number of other Black Christian students for spiritual influence, community, and input. Therefore, The Real is a safe space to share, discuss, pray and express the many issues facing the black community in America today.

Registration deadline is Friday, February 1 at 11:59pm

Registration cost is only $30 NOT $80 for San Diego students. Email kimberlyn.loarie@intervarsity.org for discount code to register!
