Edward and Debbie Gersch


We are excited to be serving on staff with Cru. We feel humbled that God has called us to serve him full time through this ministry. We are happy to be involved in a ministry that God is using to change people's lives.

  • Debbie served with Athletes in Action from January 1991-June 2018. 
  • Ed served with AIA from June 2011-June 2018. 
  • From  August 2018-June 2019, we moved to Orlando to participate in a one year leadership development program called Lake Hart Stint at the Cru Headquarters. 
  • During our Lake Hart Stint, Ed  served with Jesus Film Project on the U.S Strategies/Mobilization Team as a Recruiting Specialist. Ed's role was to help individuals consider how best to utilize their gifts and abilities to serve God. Debbie's role was to focus on raising our preschool daughter and assist with Cru or AIA special projects as she was able. 
  • Over the summer in 2019, we are focusing on raising more financial support, Ed is taking a seminary-level class required by Cru and we will both attend the Cru19 staff conference.
  • In August 2019, we will move permanently to Orlando, where Ed has accepted a role to be the Director of Mid-Career Recruiting with the Jesus Film Project, whose offices are located at the Cru Headquarters.
