Dave and Jean Stedman



Originally from Ohio, Dave and Jean met at Otterbein University, where they became active in the movement of Campus Crusade for Christ International / Cru. 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 on the Global Communications Team. His role includes editing and disseminating a variety of current international stories that reflect how God is working to build movements of Christ-centered multiplying disciples.
  • Jean 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 Stedmans come alongside CCCI/Cru leadership to help stimulate unified, focused and persistent prayer – in a lifestyle of growing intimacy with God. Staff, students and volunteers are encouraged to live God-dependent, God-alert and God-responsive lives. Only then can we have 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.
