Raymond and Laura Haggard Jr


Hello friends, 

Seeing lives changed with the wonderful saving message of our King and Savior is our passion. For over 20 years the Lord has allowed us to serve with this wonderful ministry, Cru. In that time we have seen lives of College, High School, Middle School students and faculty changed all over the planet. 

Before marriage we served independently with Cru, Laura in Albania for 2 years and Raymond in Belarus for a year. Later, after we met and married, we served with a wonderful team at Ohio University for 13 years and then 4 years with Cru's Global Missions team.  

This last year the Lord moved our hearts to invest our lives full time to Cru High School and Middle School in Noblesville, Indiana. Inspired by our daughter who wanted a Cru Bible Study with her Middle School friends now 3 years later has grown to Cru Middle and Cru High School chapters in Noblesville with another soon to open. Laura and I meet weekly training students to walk with the Lord and to impact the lives of their peers with the gospel. By leading Cru weekly meetings, leadership training and connecting over a burger or coffee, we hope to develop a community of Caring Christ following students who are passionate about connecting their peers with Jesus Christ.  

What a privilege it is to serve with and mentor our own 2 daughters in following Jesus in their own schools. Wow! Praise the Lord!

Thank you for wanting to join us in reaching this young generation!

In Christ,

Raymond, Laura, Maggie, Ellie and Will
