The article offers observations on the state of student Christian movement (SCM). The earliest Christian movements began with Samuel Mills and his friends at Williams College, Massachusetts in 1808 and continued on with the foundation of the Young Men's Christian Association. The SCM is a movement of young people facilitated and joined by adults in their thirties that is rooted in the cross-cultural mission of the church. The separation with the InterVarsity Fellowship had an impact on SCM.
