Hey there and thanks for visiting.
Lindsey and I wanted to give you a glimpse of what we do- and why we've decided to dedicate our lives to reaching college students for Christ!
The minute a student steps onto the college campus, there is tremendous competition for his heart and mind- telling him how he should spend his time, his money, and ultimately his life. We want to help college students see that joy comes from investing in God, His Word, and the people he puts in their lives.
Since arriving at East Carolina University in 2012, we have seen God move in magnificent ways. He loves college students and is raising up a missionary force to go to the world and proclaim that He is Lord! We are grateful that he lets us be a small part of introducing people to Christ, helping them grow in their faith, and sending them to reach the nations.
We get to see lives changed. ECU Cru is prayerfully trusting God to reach and equip students and faculty with the gospel for a lifetime of kingdom growth.
Evangelism is an important part of what we do- most college students are open to talking about spiritual things. We help our students look around and see that God purposefully places people in our lives. We want students to know how to share their faith and initiate with their peers.
We also want students to grow in their faith. We do this through community groups, conferences and retreats, one-on-one mentoring, and weekly large group meetings. Summer Missions is a greenhouse of growth for most students- they can stay Stateside or go overseas- all with the purpose of learning to share Christ!
Our dream is that students and faculty at East Carolina University would want to take the gospel to the world! We partner with the Cru movement in Lebanon where God is reaching culturally Muslim students for Christ and sending them back to their Middle Eastern countries with eternal hope! Who would have thought we could be a part of that?
