Our Capital Region students lead out in Outreach efforts this week at Epicenter conference!

Our Capital Region students lead out in Outreach at the Epicenter 2012 conference

Kailee and Becca are two of our students involved in our movements at local campuses in the Capital Region who attended our Epicenter Experience conference in Albany this week.  They both experienced some great opportunities to reach out to students and other people right here in the Capital Region with 288 other students at the conference on Wednesday afternoon of this week.  Some students served at the Homeless Shelters and some looked for ways to start spiritual conversations on campuses and in downtown areas.  Kailee and Becca share their stories below from the stage of the conference! We praise God for their steps of faith and especially for the young man who works at Dunkin Donuts who received Christ!

Thank you for praying for and financially supporting this ministry so that we, together with you, can be a part of investing in the lives of students for the King’s eternal purposes!

By His Grace each day,

The End of the Year and “I can’t find love because…”

…I’ve slept with too many people to know what love is” was what one student said when Ellen asked each of approximately 25 students to jot
down something we could pray for them for. Can you imagine being so broken and aware that you’re willing to ask a complete
stranger to pray for this area of your life?! This student isn’t alone… Read more in the newsletter below.

As we close out the End of the Year

We are so grateful to all of you for praying for our ministry and giving financially to us this year. We have had some challenges financially and yet God has provided again and again.  We know he will provide again this year as long as he calls us to serve him here.  At the end of this year, our needs are greater than in years past. For many of you this may also be the case.  We are confident that God continues to call us to work for the Gospel to grow in and through college students. As we move into 2012 we are praying for $10,000 in additional funding to make up for shortfalls.  If you have already taken a new financial step of faith with us recently, thank you. If not, and you haven’t had a chance to do so yet:

Would you make a gift of $50, $200 or $500 to help us contine to reach college students for Christ?

Thank you again, and we wish you a very safe and Happy New Year!

A thank you from Cheeia to CRU

If you’ve ever wondered what Campus Crusade for Christ (soon to be called Cru) is all about, then Cheeia’s video of thanks expresses well what we are all about when it comes to college students:

What happened in January? The Boston Winter Conference

Boston Winter Conference 2010

What a beginning we had to the new year and to a new decade! It was amazing to see students experience God and get to know other students who have placed their faith in our Lord!  The Boston Winter Conference this year was one of our favorites yet over the years we have been.

“God is going to do great things this semester! I will do whatever it takes!”

… said Juan recently (via text), a new believer and new student to our movement at RPI.  We had just shared our faith with a student he had just met recently in his dorm on campus using an innovative short film to begin asking questions of each other about faith and spirituality.  I am excited to see Juan growing in his faith and putting into practice skills he is learning on how to create space in his friendships for spiritual conversations and for God to come up naturally.  He and I readGodSpace over winter break, where Doug Pollock, a fellow Campus Crusade staff member, shares some great ideas for doing just this.  We hope to bring you more stories and updates soon!

What is a Summer Project? – Newsletter for June 2009 from the Flemings

Friends and Family –

We hope that you are enjoying the beginning of this summer and all the warmth God is bringing through it! We made the long trek out to our summer assignment by car last weekend and have been in training since.  It is an honor and a privilege to serve the Lord as we have the opportunity to do so with Campus Crusade for Christ.  We have met so many God-followers and Christ-like people on our international and state-side staff team while here and have excited anticipation for what is to come both around the world and in Albany, New York, very soon! We hope you all will be as excited as we are to hear the story about our student leader named Stacey and her friends on her Summer Project in this month’s newsletter below!

God Speed,

John and Ellen  June 2009-Summer projectsJune 2009-Summer projects
