I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to Sarah Grooms, a good friend of mine, and one of the newest Cru representatives in the southeast. In case you didn’t know, Cru is the ministry formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ.
I actually met with Sarah and her fiancé Ed the other day at my satellite office (the local Barnes & Noble bookstore). Ed is also a Cru missionary. Sarah just graduated from the College of Charleston and Ed interned there with Cru. They’re getting married in December. They are deeply committed to the Lord and will be reaching students for Christ in Greensboro, NC, where they have 100,000 students in their scope of responsibility!
Like many other mission organizations, Cru staff members have the responsibility to develop a team of financial ministry partners who provides the necessary funding for their outreach, including their salary and ministry related expenses. Our church is supporting them, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to invest in the lives of college students. Sarah and Ed are rising their funding, and I thought you would be encouraged to hear about their ministry.
You can learn more about them by going to Sarah’s Cru staff page HERE. If you’d like to help support her, you can do it straight from that website.
