In 1956, Stott came to North America at the invitation of the InterVarsity Christian Fellowships of Canada and the United States to hold "missions" on several college and university campuses. These missions included evangelistic lectures on the basic tenets of Christian faith as well as many meeting one-on-one and in small groups with both Christian and non-Christian students. These missions were examples of the kind of outreach Stott was already very experienced in leading in England and which he would continue to lead in many different countries for the rest of the century.

Below is a report by the IVCF staffer who accompanied Stott on the meetings held at Harvard, Yale and the University of Illinois in 1957.
