​Why am I choosing to serve with Cru?

Ever since I first learned about Jesus as a kid, I always had an eagerness to share and talk about him. But it wasn’t until college, that I realized the urgency of the gospel. I got to college and immediately wanted to be accepted. I searched for this in alot of places that weren’t God. Luckily, I had heard about Cru, and decided to check it out. Staff and students involved in Cru pursued me and showed an acceptance that only came from a relationship with Christ. I was able to truly understand that God loved me deeply, so much so that he sent his son to die for my sins. I began to learn what it meant to walk with God daily, and that there was nothing I had to do to earn a relationship with him. I realized that there were alot of students like me. Students who came into college having being involved in church, but had been overwhelmed with other options. There were other students who had never even heard the gospel. I joined a sorority and began leading a Bible study in my chapter. It was then that I realized the importance of walking alongside other woman in their walks with the Lord, and my heart grew for evangelism and discipleship. God opened so many doors to share the gospel, and to help women on their faith journeys.  After going on summer mission and various mission trips, and completing my first intern year in Zagreb Croatia, God really affirmed that this is what I am meant to do. I became more confident in sharing my faith, and got to see God do incredible things in my life, the lives of the students I shared with, and students I was doing ministry with. I am so excited to return to the University of Cincinnati, and the surrounding campuses to be apart of what the Lord is doing amongst students. Would you prayerfully consider joining my team at $100 monthly, or some other amount?
