Equipping Student Leaders around the World

“Win the campus today, win the world tomorrow.”

 ~ Dr. Bill Bright

Campus Crusade for Christ’s continued emphasis has always been to reach students on all the world’s campuses, especially since these young men and women become tomorrow’s leaders. Initially, every local campus ministry, now called Cru, was lead by our staff and their student-disciples; however, our limited number of staff can’t possibly reach all the world’s universities.

Jenn visited us last weekend and shared about a few encouraging events on campus recently…

She was invited to an honors banquet where she received the Outstanding Senior award in German and also was one of five receiving an Outstanding Senior award in English.

Several days later, Stetson students gave oral presentations of their research projects all day long for the faculty and other students to listen and learn from their studies.  (This annual event is called Stetson Showcase).  Jen’s paper, “Two Women in Conversation: a Blues Approach to May Ayim and Audre Lorde, earned second place in her category.
