David and Jamie Brewster


“I don’t think I’ve ever talked with a Christian before,” a college student shared with me on a campus in downtown Portland. I had just met her and asked a few questions about her spiritual background. Moments later, I realized that this young woman had no one in her life that she could talk to if she had questions about who Jesus was or why he mattered.

That is why Jamie and I serve with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) We want everyone, everywhere to know someone who truly follows Jesus. Whether it’s on a college campus, in the workplace, or a remote village on the other side of the world, our desire is that everyone has an opportunity to hear the Gospel.

Jamie and I were introduced to Cru while we were in college. For both of us, it had a powerful and unique impact that challenged us in our walk with God and changed the way we thought about taking the Gospel to the world. After college, we meet in Venezuela, as we were part of a team that launched a student ministry in the Andes Mountains.

We joined Cru staff together in 2009 and as our first ministry assignment, we helped re-launch a city-wide campus ministry in Portland, Oregon. It was there that we saw the lostness of the city and the beauty of Christ’s redeeming work in a dark world. Over the years we have served in a variety of roles within Cru. Currently, my (Dave’s) role is Graphic Designer for the National Campus Ministry. Jamie is primarily with our three kids, Benjamin and Adeline and Alder but also serves as a Sending Associate for Cru. Her job is to review new staff and intern applications and give input on hiring and placement.

We want to see the Great Commission fulfilled by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others. I get to play an important part in that by creating the tools and resources necessary for our staff, students and volunteers around the world to make disciples of all nations. It’s a privilege to use my God-given talents and training to be a part of something so significant.

We believe that as Christ-followers we are all called to this mission. We invite others who share our vision to partner with us through prayer and financial support so that everyone would know the hope found in Christ Jesus.
