Clay and Emily Selway


Ohio University & Southeast Ohio

When we were students at Ohio University, God used Cru in many ways to bring us to Him and help us to grow in our faith. Our four years there were a time of great growth, and we continue to benefit from our experiences as a part of the ministry.

After graduation, we both felt the Lord calling us to full-time ministry with Cru.  We wanted to do for students what had been done for us: Namely, to win students to Christ, build them up in their faith, and send them out to reach other's for Christ.

We are deeply passionate about introducing young people to Jesus, and teaching them how to live their entire lives on mission - to see others come to know Jesus, and to help other believers participate in what God is doing around the world. 

Our goal is to bring students to Christ, build them up in their faith, and then launch them into the world to make an eternal difference in their churches, their families, their workplaces, and the world. Will you join with us?

We'd love to talk with you and share more about our ministry. Please email us at, or visit our website.

​A Little About Us:

We are both graduates of Ohio University (Clay with a Bachelor's in Education in 2012, Emily with a Bachelors in Photography in 2013.)  After college, Clay worked for two years as a teacher, while Emily went straight into ministry with Cru. Clay enjoys sports, and is an intense Cavs and Browns fan. Emily loves reading and cooking. Together, we enjoy backpacking, hiking, and traveling. We have one son, Elliott and two very fluffy cats. We love our jobs with Cru and all that God is doing in and through us!
