Tricia reports to CRU's Legal Counsel Dept., having graduated Cum Laude and successfully passing the Florida Bar in 2008. Much of her work involves the growing area of intellectual property issues within CRU. She also provides pro bono legal work to Orlando families with special needs for the following reason.
We have three children: Christina (who is married to Daniel Janek), Joshua ( married to Lauren) and Daniel. Our youngest son (27) is severely autistic, and is living as an adult in a special Christian community for the mentally challenged.
Tricia and I see the need to help other parents who have special needs adult children prepare for their child's future [hence the pro bono work.] We sensed God wanted her to pursue law in part to help other families facing this difficult situation. She also serves the Board of Wesely Glen Ministries as Vice Chairperson [in a volunteer capacity] where Daniel resides.
Like all staff including the President, Steve Douglass, we have the privilege of looking to the Lord to work in believer's hearts to help provide for our financial needs. Though Tricia serves in Campus Crusade's General Counsel's Office, and I in the Office of the president, we receive no additional compensation from either the GCO or Cru.
Our salary only comes from our team of ministry partners. Would you prayerfully consider contributing to our work? One key reason is that your gifts will go towards a very effective, worldwide online ministry. Cru's goal is to offer everyone on earth multiple opportunities to come to know Christ and grow in their faith by 2020. Last year alone the Jesus Film Project recorded over 186 million people who were exposed to a clear Gospel presentation and over 35 million indicated decisions for Christ.
Another is that our costs associated with taking care of Daniel are quite high (>$400/month), and combined with the loans we took out to pay for Tricia's education ($680/month), we have much to trust God for.
We would be so grateful for your gifts. Thank you for asking God what He would have you to help meet our ongoing needs!
