One of the coolest things about my job is that I get to meet with other CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) staff and strategize how to reach many campuses with so few resources; most of the CRU staff in southern CA have half a dozen or more campuses in their scope but simply don't have the time to invest time on those campuses. Many of those campuses are community colleges.
I get the privilege of helping them to connect with local churches, and then I get to help them equip those local churches to reach the campus near them.
When I was in Southern California a few weeks ago, I got to meet with three CRU staff who oversee 11 community college campuses between the three of them. I even got to go on campus with one of them (picture above) to do some spiritual surveys. I cannot wait to help them equip local churches!
Pray for these 11 campuses! Pray that the Lord would continue to connect me and these 3 CRU staff with local churches who would want to learn how to make disciples on their nearby community college campus: Irvine Valley College, Orange Coast College, Saddleback College, Cerritos College, Cypress College, Long Beach City College, Mt. San Antonio College, Rio Hondo College, Fullerton College, Pasadena City College.
The Yorks are passionate about bringing the Gospel to the nations - especially the unreached of the world (those who have no access to the Gospel). They are convinced that the greatest impact they can have in reaching the unreached is by multiplying disciples on college campuses and equipping churches to be missional disciple-makers.
