Dave and Jean Stedman



Originally from Ohio, Dave and Jean met at Otterbein College, where they became active in the Campus Crusade for Christ International / Cru movement. The Stedmans have served full-time with Cru since 1974, at various field and headquarters locations across the U.S.

Global Leadership Office

  • Dave serves as director of communications on the Global Prayer Team. His role includes employing a variety of media both to disseminate current international prayer needs and to develop a robust culture of prayer.
  • Jean too works to mobilize prayer from the CCCI / Cru Great Commission Prayer Center in Orlando. Using her personal experience in raising a disabled child, she also leads a ministry to other caregivers of those with disabilities.

Will Christ's Great Commission be fulfilled in our generation?

The Global Prayer Team comes alongside CCCI leadership around the world to help stimulate unified, focused and persistent prayer – in a lifestyle of growing intimacy with God. Staff, students and volunteers are encouraged to be God-dependent, God-alert and God-responsive. Only then can we have the confidence to see Him ignite spiritual movements everywhere.

Would you like to pray with the Stedmans for crucial needs of ministries around the world and help ignite spiritual movements? (They welcome your confidential, personal prayer requests too.) Email them at dave.stedman(at)cru.org, or call/text (407) 719-6976. Dave publishes a bi-monthly Movements Prayer Journal, highlighting the top prayer requests for different portions of CCCI. The Prayer Journal also supports a global prayer initiative Pray2020, focused on praying for 10 million Christ-centered multiplying disciples and 5 million new churches by the end of the year 2020.  View it at Pray2020.org
