Rachel McClellan Taking the Gospel to college students to see Jesus transform lives

College students are the future world leaders. As my high school chemistry teach would say, they are the "movers and shakers of the world."

When they head out into the world, they have a opportunity to make a great impact. Can you imagine the impact that thousands of Christ-following college graduates could have around the world?

I didn't always want to become a missionary. In fact, I never would have dreamed it before college. I thought I had my career planned out before I even began my freshman year at The Ohio State University. I'm so glad I was wrong.

When I started college, I knew I wanted faith to have a bigger role in my life, but I didn't know what that actually meant. Eventually, I agreed to go to a Cru weekly meeting and my life has been changed ever since. Slowly, but surely, the Lord began working in my life and helping me grow closer to Him. It was during this time that He began leading me to think I should go into ministry, because that's what Christians do, right? I truly believed it was what I was meant to do, so I followed Him down that path. I'm so glad I did.

I have the privilege of being on the frontlines of the mission in Cincinnati. Thousands of college students across the area are loved by God and I'm so excited to take the Gospel to these students. I get to witness lives be transformed through the truth and hope of Jesus Christ. These students are lights on their campuses, and God works through them to change lives of people around them and around the world.

"Therefore go and make disciple of all nations..." (Matthew 28:19)

We are called to go to the nations with the Gospel. Across the country and the world, students are on mission for Christ to share Jesus with others. From Virginia Beach to Croatia to Ghana, God is calling us to go.

But I cannot do this alone...

Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all people. Psalm 96:3

My ministry partners are enabling me to take the Gospel to these students. Through their prayers and financial support, God has been transforming lives.

Would you prayerfully consider partnering with me? I would be honored to share more with you!
