Christian Veterinary Fellowship (CVF) is a student-run volunteer organization at Oregon State University's College of Veterinary Medicine that is a branch off of Christian Veterinary Mission, our parent organization. Veterinary medicine provides veterinary professionals unique opportunities to share the love of Jesus Christ while using their professional skills. CVF provides a place for future veterinarians to come together on a regular basis in order to encourage each other, learn from colleagues/peers already out in practice, and make lasting friendships that can help make the rigor of veterinary school easier to endure. As veterinarians in training who also love Jesus, it is our desire to transform lives in our community and around the world by improving the health of companion animals, livestock and exotic animals. While enrolled in Veterinary school, CVF is where students gather together to grow in their faith, profession, studies, and relationships with Christ. Students are challenged in their worldview of veterinary medicine and how to implement their faith with their career while living out God's call and serving others.
At Oregon State University, it is our goal to show love and provide spiritual support to our college, peers and classmates. Our CVF group meets on a weekly basis to participate in devotionals, hold discussions about current events relevant to our lives and profession, learn from practicing veterinarians in the field, pray, and just enjoy each other's company! Besides occasionally planning events together locally, CVF members are encouraged to attend Real-Life-Real-Impact, a spiritual retreat through Christian Veterinary Mission geared for Veterinary Students all over the country.
