The GBU (Gruppi Biblici Universitari) is a student-based movement which unites students and organises events focused on God’s Word in universities up and down the country. Established in 1950, the GBU is the Italian branch of an international student movement called IFES (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students) which operates in more than 150 countries worldwide.
The GBU’s vision and objectives are encapsulated in our motto, which is: Sharing Jesus from Student to Student. Jesus of Nazareth is the heart of biblical revelation and the cornerstone of the Christian faith, and the GBU exists so that every university student has the opportunity to hear the good news of salvation by grace and to respond by putting their faith in Jesus. As the motto makes clear, this ministry is carried out from student to student.
