We have been on the staff of Cru since 1979 and 1975, respectively. We have always served at Cru's International headquarters. Mike helps to design and put in place complex software systems. These provide vital information to our worldwide ministry. Currently, he is helping provide tools for Cru ministries to host ministry events and mission trips. Cru’s ministries, like the Campus Ministry, Athletes in Action, and FamilyLife, reach out to over 70,000 students, families, and individuals every year through events alone. These and other Cru ministries host nearly 1000 events to help people know God and grow in their faith.
Sus helps our staff with technical skills and with sharing the gospel through the Internet. She also maintains our personal site, MikeandSus.org. She has an active Internet presence, posting on social media and on her blogs. She looks for opportunities for evangelism and discipleship. Find all her Internet sites through her online business card.
We have a growing family with three married children, Ben, Josh, and Jenn. (Sus, by the way, is pronounced “Sooz”, but to our seven grandchildren she is “Nana“.)We’re also blessed to watch God ministering to His people in a small group we lead at church.
Even though our day-to-day work is with computer systems and the Internet, what we really help do is connect the people of the world with the person of Jesus, especially through resourcing our staff as they touch the lives of individuals in 190 countries.
