Mark and Anne Marie Winz


Thanks for your interest in our communications ministries with Cru through Worldwide Challenge magazine and Writing for Life training (above, at a training event in Colorado). 

In Worldwide Challenge (, we're working to cover international ministries, including:

  • an outreach to high-school students in Ecuador (by Anne Marie),
  • an outreach in the Dominican Republic using the film Magdalena: Released from Shame ( to reaching women for Christ, and
  • campus ministry in Paris as that city reels from recent attacks.

Closer to home, we're working on stories about:

  • a special summer outreach to one San Francisco ethnic community,
  • a way churches are serving military veterans who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and 
  • a couple who moved into one of Portland's more troubled neighborhoods to show Christ to their neighbors. 

Would you join us in praying for three things?

  • First, pray for our opportunities to take communications training to others in full-time ministry.
  • Second, pray for us as we seek to develop additional ministry funding in light of increasing needs.
  • Third, pray for good communication with our ministry staff members and leaders around the world as we plan upcoming magazine stories and possible trips for Writing for Life training.
