In the early 60s with the emerging of Christian Fellowships in some tertiary institutions in Malaysia, the need was felt for a coordinating body to strengthen these fellowships through training and counseling.
Hence FES came to be through the concerted efforts of some graduates and students. While a member of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES), FES Malaysia remains an independent body, run by Malaysians and supported by Malaysians.
With the imminent separation of Singapore from Malaysia, FES Malaysia was birthed through the combined effort of both students and graduates of that era. The goal was to inspire the endless possibility of the impact students can have in the campus and later, as graduates, wherever they are placed.
