Raymond and Laura Haggard Jr


Hello friends, 

Seeing lives changed with the wonderful saving message of our King and Savior is our passion. For 25 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. 

From serving abroad, 13 years with our team at Ohio University, the National Global team and now Cru High School the Lord has consistently captivated our hearts and lives with the message of Christ. We live in very uncertain times where more students are growing up without knowing that Jesus is the hope for all humanity.  

Two years ago 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 5 years later has grown to Cru Middle and Cru High School chapters in Noblesville   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 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!

- 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
