In 1983 a group of students from Virginia approached U.S. Senator Paul Trible and his wife, Rosemary, with the idea of hosting a Virginia Student Leadership Forum, and they enthusiastically agreed. The gathering in Virginia marked the first of many state forums across the country. Like the national forum, state forums invite student leaders from college campuses to come together and dialogue about the leadership model of Jesus of Nazareth.

These forums are hosted by local political, business and religious leaders. The events typically include keynote speeches by various political leaders, small group breakout sessions after larger group meetings, and local community service projects.
