This chapter describes Campus Crusade's early years as successful enough that other university ministries—most notably Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF)—observed Crusade's rapid growth with great interest. IVCF had expanded from its roots in Great Britain to Canada and the United States in the late 1920s and 1930s, as the precipitous decline of both the YMCA and the Student Volunteer Movement created an opening for a new evangelical campus ministry. It reasserted evangelical verities, including the inspiration of Scripture, the deity of Christ, and his vicarious sacrifice. Given the movement's British background, however, IVCF was further removed than Crusade from the subculture of American fundamentalism, and more interested in helping students approach Christianity from intellectual and academic perspectives.
