Raymond and Laura Haggard Jr


Hello friends, 

Seeing lives changed with the wonderful saving message of our King and Savior is our passion. In our 28 years with Cru,  we have seen the Lord change lives of College, High School, Middle School students and faculty  all over the world.

In our years of serving at home or abroad, on College or High School campuses , we are continually driven by the reality of how much students today need Jesus. We live in very uncertain times where more students are growing up without knowing that Jesus is the hope for all humanity.  Our desire is to help them know Him.

7 years ago the Lord moved our hearts to shift our focus to reaching the Middle and High School Students in Noblesville, Indiana. What began with our daughter wanting  a Cru Bible Study with her Middle School friends, has now  grown to chapters in both Noblesville Middle Schools and the High School.   Laura and I meet weekly coaching students who desire  to walk with the Lord and to impact the lives of their peers with the gospel. By Mentoring students to lead  out with their faith through Cru weekly meetings, daily interactions with their peers or  just connecting over a burger,  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 these students  in following Jesus in their own schools. 

- One Mother-  “Thank you so much for building into our two kids. They have grown so much in their faith this last year. You just don't know how much your ministry has impacted our family.”

 -  Current student - “I can’t miss Cru each week. It is my ‘weekly reboot’ and helps get me centered again”. 

- Current student- “ I am so thankful for Cru because it has given me such a strong sense of community in my school.”​

- Former Student and leader- “Cru opened up my heart to His Grace and helped me understand what it means to live by faith and not my own power.”

Thank you for  joining us in reaching this  generation!

In Christ,

Raymond, Laura, Maggie, Ellie and Will
