Exploring God, Faith, and the Experiences of Our People
LaFe stands for Latino Fellowship. We are an InterVarsity Christian Fellowhip ministry specific to Latino/a students on campus and across the US. We are una comunidad that welcomes Catholics, Evangelicals, and anyone who just wants to know more about and/or deepen their relationship with God. We meet often for discussing the Bible, celebrating, food, and fun! LaFe is committed to developing Latino leaders who serve the campus community with the love of Jesus Christ as they explore God, faith, and the experiences of our people. We do this by providing students a place for Spiritual Growth, Community, Service, and Familia.

We meet weekly for bible studies on Monday nights at 7PM @ the Multicultural Center (MCC) TV Lounge, located at 1936 Sheridan Rd., to discuss what the Bible says and how to apply it to our lives as Latino students. No need to have prior knowledge of the Bible – this is a place to ask questions, learn and grow together.
We hold conferences as well as missions’ trips during the year. Below are some events you do not want to miss!

Join us for LaFe 2013 – a national conference that only happens every 3 years! This is a time for Latino students from all over the U.S. and Mexico to come together and fellowship in community, encouraging one another, while receiving some quality teaching from great expositors. During this conference we will have worship, teachings that will help you grow in your faith, plus great food and games! This year’s theme is Mi Gente (My People). Here are some questions LaFe13 will explore:
- What does it mean to be Latino?
- How does being Latino affect my faith journey?
- Can being a Latino Christian be a blessing to others?
Dates: Februrary 21-23
Place: Double Tree Hotel, Oak Brook, IL
Every winter, hundreds of students from around northern Illinois and northwest Indiana gather together to be challenged and stretched in their faith. At Winterfest, students participate in one of several tracks to focus on specific areas of growth. Campus fellowships have times together to pray and share. The entire conference gathers together for group worship and prayer.
As people gather from different types of schools and backgrounds, we receive the blessings that a broader and more diverse Christian community can offer. Whether you have never believed in God or you have been in a spiritual journey with Jesus for years… there is something in store for you at Winterfest!
