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!
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.
Jeremiah 29:7 speaks of God telling his people to seek the welfare of the land in which he placed them. We want ECU students to invest and love the campus and the surrounding areas, so that this city can be better because they were there!
We also want students to grow in their faith. We do this through community groups, conferences and retreats, through one on one mentoring relationships with Cru staff and student leaders, and weekly large group meetings. We also want to send out students on Summer Mission. Summer Mission is a greenhouse of growth for most students- they can stay Stateside or go overseas- all with the purpose of learning to share Christ!
We invite local Pastors to speak at our weekly meetings, so that students can meet adults seeking the welfare of Greenville. We partner with many churches in the area for this reason!
Our student leaders have seen the impact Christ has during this formative time in their lives. They want to reach younger students with the message of Christ- so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus.
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?
