Rich and Ruthie Wiewiora



We were married in 1979. We have 2 adult sons, Joe and Chris.

For more than 38 years we have been in full-time service with Cru (the name of Campus Crusade for Christ in the U.S.). Together with others, we help to win people to Jesus, build them into committed followers of His, and send them out to reach others for Christ.

Wherever we have served, we have seen God at work -- on the college campus, in the community, and in our local church.

We very much like to be involved in and lead small groups. For example, during the past school year Ruthie was in a women's prayer group on Mondays, a women's Bible study on  Wednesdays, and a women's group on Thursdays, and she taught a Bible study on Thursdays. Rich leads a men's group on Saturdays. In addition, we both are part of a group made up of 6 married couples.

Being involved in a local church is important to us, and we've done just that wherever we have lived.

Since Fall 1999, Rich has been on the team of Worldwide Challenge, the flagship publication of Cru. Rich serves as copy editor, helping to maintain the high quality of written communications as we proclaim what God is doing in people's lives.

Our Worldwide Challenge team gets the opportunity to disciple potentially thousands of people through our magazine's pages—and many, many more through our online presence. Just like mentoring someone in person, we let people see examples of God's work in other people's lives, teach them how to share the good news of Jesus with others, and help them grow in their life with Christ through our stories.
