Leah Sheffield


During my final three years of college, God used Cru to show me three things that I had been uneasy about in years prior: 

  1. ​There sincerely is a transformation of the heart and mind that happens through the Holy Spirit when a person receives Jesus into their heart and pursues a relationship with Him
  2. Christian community CAN be life changing
  3. There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not in need of a Savior

Through Cru, God has allowed me to experience incredible moments of grace and the outpour of Christ's love for His people. God has used my involvement in this organization to cultivate an overwhelming desire to serve Him in the metro Detroit area!

Over the last two years, I have fallen in love with those on my campus from the Middle East. Through building up relationships with them, I've had the privilege of experiencing some of their culture and learning how EXCITING it is to be in close relations with those who grew up outside the United States. We have such an advantage by being in close proximity to the city of Dearborn;  it presents a HUGE opportunity to engage with them in conversations about the gospel right here in metro Detroit.  How incredible would it be to have college students from the Middle East fall on their knees claiming that Jesus is their Lord and Savior?! And then see the power and truly saving news of the gospel taken back  to the communities and home countries of those who've been saved?!
